NFL Reportedly Arranges Private Workout for Colin Kaepernick

NFL Reportedly Arranges Private Workout for Colin Kaepernick

"Earlier this year, we (the NFL) discussed some possible steps with his representatives and they recently emphasized his level of preparation and that he is ready to work out for clubs and be interviewed by them", the memo said.

It's been almost four years since Colin Kaepernick, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, has played a game of American football. All 32 teams were invited to attend after several teams inquired about Kaepernick's readiness to return to football after a near three-year absence.

He opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers after the 2016 season - the team reportedly was ready to release him - and has not played since.

Kaepernick has said repeatedly over past three years that he is ready and waiting to make a return to the National Football League, if only he'd be given a chance.

Two sources told the Wall Street Journal about the move, and ESPN reported, citing a memo, on the development.

Colin Kaepernick, who became more known for his kneeling protest before the game than his work on the gridiron, is mounting a comeback into the NFL.

Tynes says the league reached out to Kaepernick's representatives out of nowhere on Tuesday, and adds that there had been no conversations leading up to that point.

Among the details, the statement said no team has offered Kaepernick a job or brought him in for a workout since the 2016 season.

No one knows what Kaepernick will look like after being away from the game for three seasons. While he's been shunned from the league, Kaepernick's agent has stated that his client has worked out five days a week to remain in shape over the past couple of years. Kaepernick has 12,271 career passing yards, 2,300 career rushing yards and 85 total touchdowns over his six-year career.

The NFL in February settled a collusion grievance Kaepernick and former teammate Eric Reid filed against the league.
