NFL arranges private workout for Kaepernick

  NFL arranges private workout for Kaepernick The NFL sent its teams a memo Tuesday stating a private workout will be held for free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick on Saturday in Atlanta, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Representatives from all clubs are invited to attend the workout, which will include on-field drills and an interview. Several teams inquired about Kaepernick's football readiness and both he and his reps have expressed a desire to return to the league, Rapoport added.

Despite the complications that ensued from Colin Kaepernick ’ s workout for the NFL on Saturday, including a last-minute location change and accusations of bad faith on behalf of the league, the quarterback’ s “ goal was accomplished ,” Eric Reid said Sunday.

Eric Reid continued his support of former teammate Colin Kaepernick following the quarterback's workout Saturday.

"The goal was accomplished," Reid said Sunday, according to ESPN's David Newton. "He proved he can play this game. He proved he can throw the ball. Elite. That's what an NFL executive said."

The free-agent passer made 60 scripted throws during his workout at a Georgia high school, which drew generally strong reviews from team representatives.

Reid was the first player to join Kaepernick in kneeling during the anthem to protest social injustices back in 2016. The Carolina Panthers safety commended the quarterback's courage to continue his comeback attempt.

Report: NFL won't give Kaepernick list of showcase attendees

  Report: NFL won't give Kaepernick list of showcase attendees After initially stating it would do so, the NFL has decided not to provide Colin Kaepernick with a list of personnel executives and coaches attending his workout in Atlanta on Saturday, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The NFL scheduled a workout and interview for Kaepernick, sending invitations to all 32 teams. Most clubs - if not all - are expected to at least send scouts, but top decision-makers are less certain to attend.

Although Colin Kaepernick remains unsigned after Saturday' s workout , former teammate Eric Reid was impressed at what he saw from the quarterback. "The goal was accomplished ," Reid said after the Carolina Panthers' game Sunday, per David Newton of ESPN. "He proved he can play this game.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid could have thrown his management under the bus for not attending quarterback Colin Kaepernick ' s workout on Saturday after his quarterback threw four "The goal was accomplished ," said Reid , wearing a black No. 7 Kaepernick jersey.

"He's been working out every day for three years," Reid said. "Can you imagine the mental fortitude it takes to stay in shape for three years while somebody is blackballing you for you wanting to stand up for people who have been wronged?"

Reid, who attended drills in support of his former teammate, maintained the NFL organized the event as a public relations stunt.

"The proof of the workout was to show he can play the game, was to show he can throw the ball, and he did that," he said. "The NFL wanted to control the narrative by not letting independent NFL media into the workout to document the workout.

"They wouldn't even tell him who was going to run his routes for him. They wouldn't even give him a script for the workout. Is Colin supposed to trust an organization that has blackballed him? He's not that naive."
