Colin Kaepernick shared on social media that he plans to audition for NFL teams this Saturday in Atlanta at a private workout arranged by the league.
The exiled former Pro Bowl quarterback posted on Twitter: “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.”
Kaepernick hasn’t played since 2016 with the San Francisco 49ers.
Some believed he was ousted from the NFL after helped start a wave of protests about social and racial injustice in America by kneeling during the national anthem at the games in his final season.
The NFL in February settled a collusion grievance Kaepernick and former teammate Eric Reid filed against the league. Reid now plays for the Carolina Panthers.
