Colin Kaepernick workout interview tells National Football League to stop running. Why is the former NFL QB a free agent?
What do you think? Did the NFL blackball Colin Kaepernick? Just remember Colin Kaepernick sued the NFL and settled the lawsuit. He also is 32 years old and Colin Kaepernick last NFL game was 3 seasons when he lost his final game to the Seattle Seahawks.
Colin Kaepernick said after his open workout today at Charles R. Drew High School in Riverdale. that he’s eager to play football, just as soon as the NFL will let him.
“I’ve been ready for three years, I’ve been denied for three years. We all know why,” Kaepernick said.
The change in venue interrupted schedules for many of the 25 teams that were scheduled to watch Kaepernick at the original site, but Kaepernick still threw in front of representatives from eight teams, according to Nalley, among them the Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets, Washington Redskins, San Francisco 49ers, Detroit Lions, and Tennessee Titans.
“We’re waiting for the 32 owners, the 32 teams, Roger Goodell, all of them to stop running. Stop running from the truth, stop running from the people. We’re out here, we’re ready to play, we’re ready to go anywhere,” Kaepernick said.
The NFL originally scheduled the workout to take place at the Falcons’ facility in front of 25 teams, but Kaepernick’s camp switched venues following a disagreement between the two sides on the quarterback’s liability waiver as well as media availability, among other factors.
In a statement, the NFL said it was “disappointed that Colin did not appear for his workout.” “I’ve been ready, I’m staying ready, and I’ll continue to be ready,” Kaepernick said. “We’ll be waiting to hear from Roger Goodell, the NFL, the 32 teams.”
Kaepernick has been out of the NFL since the end of the 2016 season.
