It seems like Colin Kaepernick has been working out with everybody these days. On Tuesday, he trained with Michael Vick and Chad Johnson.

Johnson shared a pic of the three men after the session. Overall, it's not surprising that Kaepernick linked up with the man formerly known as Ochocinco, but it is interesting that Vick is there.

The reason? Back in 2017, roughly one year after Kaepernick began his protest during the national anthem, Vick caused a stir with his suggestion that the quarterback cut his afro before he tried to return to the NFL.

Whatever animosity that may have been there five years ago seems to be gone now, and the sight of these three on the same field together certainly got fans talking.

Given how long Kaepernick has been away from the game of football, it seems almost impossible that a team would sign him at this point.

However, as he's made clear over the last several weeks, that won't prevent him from continuing to throw and prepare for a possible opportunity.
