Earlier this week, ESPN’s Adam Schefter revealed the NFL put a workout in place for Colin Kaepernick to showcase his skills for NFL clubs.
After being out of the NFL since 2016, Kaepernick is set to work out for NFL teams this Saturday. Several NFL teams have already confirmed they plan to send a representative to the workout.
With the workout just a few days away, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith reported at least two teams are interested in the former star quarterback.
Here’s what he had to say on First Take Wednesday morning, via For The Win.
“There’s two teams that were definitively interested in him that called the league office about him, that’s No. 1. No. 2, I’m hearing there’s at least 10 owners, if not more, that want nothing to do with him. But they’re divided, because there’s about 10 to 15 who do believe he should be back in the league – which is why the league religiously stands up and states ‘we have not banished him from the league, teams have a right to bring him on. We haven’t prohibited them from bringing him on board.'”
Stephen A. failed to name the two teams interested in Kaepernick. However, the Chicago Bears seem like an ideal candidate with Mitchell Trubisky struggling. Chicago was linked to Carolina Panthers star quarterback Cam Newton earlier this week as well.
Will Kaepernick sign with a team following the workout? We’ll have to wait and see.
