Colin Kaepernick continues to show NFL teams his desire to extend his football career.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Tuesday that NFL teams were informed the former 49ers quarterback will hold a private workout Saturday in Atlanta. Kaepernick will showcase his current shape and football skills, as well as answer any questions.
All NFL teams have been invited to attend, according to Schefter, and video of the workout and interview will be made available to every franchise.
Kaepernick himself confirmed the workout, tweeting that he has been "ready for this for 3 years."
I’m just getting word from my representatives that the NFL league office reached out to them about a workout in Atlanta on Saturday. I’ve been in shape and ready for this for 3 years, can’t wait to see the head coaches and GMs on Saturday.— Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) November 13, 2019
Later Tuesday afternoon, Schefter added more details about the workout, which includes some odd stipulations.
As Colin Kaepernick tweeted, the NFL didn't inform his reps of Saturday's workout in Atlanta until this morning. Kaepernick's reps asked for workout to be on a Tuesday, the day of most workouts, but NFL said it had to be this Saturday. He asked for a later Saturday; NFL said no.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 13, 2019
Colin Kaepernick's reps asked the NFL for a list of personnel executives and coaches who would be attending the workout; they are hoping and expecting the NFL to submit the list of personnel executives and coaches that will attend on Saturday.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 13, 2019
Kaepernick, 32, last played in the NFL in 2016 with the 49ers. The six-year pro began kneeling during the national anthem in the 2016 preseason to protest racial and social injustices, as well as police brutality to African Americans.
Kaepernick underwent shoulder surgery going into the 2016 season and had to work his way back to health. He appeared in 12 games that season -- starting 11 -- and threw 16 touchdowns to four interceptions. Kaepernick also added two more touchdowns on the ground.
The former 49ers QB threw for 2,241 yards and rushed for another 468 the last time he played in the NFL. Kaepernick has 12,271 career passing yards, 2,300 career rushing yards and 85 total touchdowns over his six-year career.
In February, Kaepernick and former 49ers safety Eric Reid, who joined Kaepernick's protest by kneeling as well in 2016, resolved their pending grievances against the NFL. Reid currently is in his second season with the Carolina Panthers. He continues to kneel during the anthem.
Kaepernick has posted videos to social media of his workouts, and his representatives told ESPN he has been "working out five days a week, for three years, in preparation to play again."
