I’m just getting word from my representatives that the NFL league office reached out to them about a workout in Atlanta on Saturday. I’ve been in shape and ready for this for 3 years, can’t wait to see the head coaches and GMs on Saturday.— Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) November 13, 2019
Kaepernick last played league football in the 2016 season. In 2017, he filed a collusion lawsuit against the NFL before it was settled out of court earlier this year.
