Kaepernick’s reps call audible, move workout at last minute

Share

More than 24 teams are expected to be represented at a private workout session with Kaepernick on Saturday at the Falcons' facility outside Atlanta.

Whatever your thoughts on Colin Kaepernick, the news surrounding his workout this weekend won't become Raiders news anytime soon. Kaepernick sued the NFL for colluding to keep him out of the league and the two sides settled in February.

Their reasoning for the move was that they believed the NFL had asked them to sign an "unusual" waiver, and they were confused why the league would refuse to allow any media there. Instead of it being a waiver in the event that he was injured, Kaepernick's team says that the waiver would have exonerated the league from ANY employment claims.

Former NFL head coach Hue Jackson will lead the drills, with assistantence from fellow former NFL coach Joe Philbin.

Looking at the 11 teams that plan on attending Saturday's workout for Kaepernick shouldn't come as a surprise at all, but as far as which teams are more likely to sign him, well that's a different story. Most recently, the National Football League has demanded that as a precondition to the workout, Mr. Kaepernick sign an unusual liability waiver that addresses employment issues and rejected the standard liability waiver from physical injury proposed by Mr. Kaepernick's representatives. The league gave Kaepernick minimal notice of the workout.

The Trump administration is accused of withholding about $400 million in military aid unless Ukraine cooperated. Prystaiko said in KIev: 'I have never seen a direct link between investigations and security assistance.

Of all the teams scheduled to be in attendance, there's little doubt the Dolphins are the most quarterback hungry team of all of them.

Flores said he had not yet finalized who from his staff would attend, and said his primary focus was on Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

But if we've learned anything in the last 48 hours, it's that nothing involving Kaepernick is going fall short of attracting the full attention of about every media outlet in the country.

We can but wait and see if this circus, established as it was by the NFL's "ready-fire-aim" modus operandi, will create anything beyond a bunch of busy writers switching headlines as the drama increases.
