Colin Kaepernick to Work Out for NFL Teams on Saturday

ESPN reported on Tuesday, that anthem protester, social justice warrior and 49er Colin Kaepernick will conduct a NFL-organized workout session for all 32 teams in Atlanta on Saturday. Many believe he has been blackballed from the NFL, but is getting another chance to prove he belongs in the league.

Kaepernick began protesting in the preseason of the 2016 season, by sitting and then kneeling during the national anthem, Breitbart reports. He has not played in the NFL since he walked out of his deal with the 49ers at the end of the 2016 season. Protests continued during the 2017 season and nearly all NFL teams—coaches and executives had joined in some kind of protest during the national anthem.

In the 2018 season the protests decreased after the NFL agreed through the recently formed Players Coalition to fund social justice initiatives.

Kaepernick and Eric Reid filed a collusion grievance against the NFL in October 2017, and the NFL settled with both players in February. Only Reid has re-joined the league.
