It seems that the mighty hurricane that dowsed the sports world with NFL and Colin Kaepernick controversy has reached an eye of the storm. Espn reported over the weekend that Colin Kaepernick has yet to receive calls from any NFL teams since his workout on Saturday, November 16, 2019.
Colin had rescheduled the workout roughly an hour before it was set to start at the Atlanta Falcons training facility where 25 teams had representatives to scout the former San Francisco 49ers, quarterback.
Colin had worked out in front of 7 representatives of NFL teams, these were the 7 that followed him to the new workout venue. The teams present were the Eagles, 49ers, Jets, Redskins, Chiefs, Titans, and Lions. Not one of those teams have so much as called The Quarterback. Kaepernick has reportedly also sent a recording of the workout to the rest of the NFL teams as well.
Kaepernick had moved the workout 51 miles to a high school after the NFL had not met Kaepernick’s desire to have media available and his own receivers for the workout.
Also, there was a waiver that was designated to keep Kaepernick from following legal action if the League had incited foul play such as not sending proper recordings to NFL teams, or if teams did not request to sign Kaepernick following the workout. The waiver was also said to be an injury free waiver of sorts.
As of today, there are no teams that have reached out to Kaepernick, it has been over a week since the maelstrom of events that occurred on the 16th. Kaepernick is still currently without a job in the NFL.
“I’ve been ready for three years, I’ve been denied for three years,” Kaepernick said. “We all know why I came out here, I showed it today in front of everybody. We have nothing to hide. So we’re waiting for the 32 owners, the 32 teams, Rodger Goodell, all of them to stop running. Stop running from the truth. Stop running from the people.”
Kaepernick was quoted in his only statement to the media with this powerful message to the NFL after his 40-minute workout.
