"I read the release from the league yesterday and I have not been a part of any discussions with the league about that happening", Hunt said. The list of teams include the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, New York Giants, New York Jets and the Washington Redskins.
The NFL announced Thursday that 11 teams have committed to attend Colin Kaepernick's workout in Atlanta. Former NFL head coach Hue Jackson will lead the drills, and former NFL head coach Joe Philbin will be in attendance as well.
On Wednesday, Schefter also appeared on the radio show and described Kaepernick's tweet about general managers and coaches being at the showcase to be "sarcastic" knowing that teams would be focused on their Week 11 games instead of a pro day for a 32-year-old quarterback.

At any point in the last three seasons there have been dozens of quarterbacks on National Football League rosters with far less proven ability than Kaepernick, and injury churn has resulted in all kinds of random players being handed starting jobs, and yet he has been out there, the third rail that no team has been willing to touch. He completed 59.8 percent of his throws for 12,271 yards, 72 touchdowns and 30 interceptions.
