With the Jets backup quarterback situation in question for next season, they will take a look at Colin Kaepernick.
It emerged on Tuesday, while this country was in the throes of a sports story that quickly morphed into a social-political one with a lot of ALL CAPS venting and use of modern insults like libtard and snowflake, that the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback had been invited to work out for National Football League teams. Most teams are expected to send directors of player personnel and scouts. Those are the people who would typically evaluate a back-up player - in this case a second- or third-string quarterback.
Kaepernick, however, says he has been staying in shape the entire time he's been a free agent, having posted his own workout video on Instagram in August showing him lifting weights and doing calisthenics.
All we do know for certain is Colin Kaepernick will be conducting a workout on Saturday in Atlanta, and there presumably will be representatives from teams in attendance.
However, it is doubtful that general managers and head coaches will be present at the suburban Atlanta workout because many will be preparing or traveling for Sunday's or Monday's games. Kaepernick's friend and former teammate Eric Reid, now with the Carolina Panthers, still kneels during the anthem. Is It Legit, Or A PR Stunt? "I'm definitely excited for him to get a shot".
The match alleged that the league was conspiring to maintain Kaepernick out due to to his protest all through the nationwide anthem, which he began in the midst of the 2016 time.
That's not a surprise because the league is said to be encouraging all teams to have someone attend and the Seahawks have an oft-stated policy of always checking out anything they think might help. Since then, he settled with the league on a formal grievance surrounding collusion between team owners against his playing.
Over the course of six seasons, Kaepernick has thrown for 12,271 yards, 72 touchdowns and 30 interceptions for a passer rating of 88.9. ESPN sources also said potentially interested teams that have contacted the league about interest in Kaepernick "haven't wanted to bring in Kaepernick for visits or workouts the way they routinely do on Tuesdays during the season, so the league is organizing Saturday's workout..."
