The workout heard round the world will be this Saturday in Atlanta. Colin Kaepernick will be making his attempt to get back on an NFL rosters and the number of teams confirmed to attend so far is actually lower than I thought. About one third of the NFL teams will be sending a scout and I was expecting at least half. Even if they have no interest in signing him, which I don’t think any of these teams do, you at least send a guy. If for no over reason than just to saw hey, we at least sent a guy to check him out.
Check out the list below, some interesting names on here, some that make a ton of sense.
