  Opinion: If Colin Kaepernick actually wants to play in NFL again, Saturday was a setback The way Saturday unfolded was good for Colin Kaepernick the celebrity and activist, but it probably won't help him earn another NFL job.As hastily and inexplicably as it was arranged, it could have been a chance for 20-plus NFL scouts to see Kaepernick throw — even if that’s all it was. Instead, it became another Nike commercial, another day for Kaepernick to bolster his credentials as a cultural icon, another day for him to embarrass NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

No NFL teams have reached out to Kaepernick to bring him in for a private workout or interview since last Saturday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports . Kaepernick is now 32 and has been out of football for nearly three full seasons, and teams have opted against signing him, even with a ton of injuries at

Kaepernick worked out for seven NFL teams at a local Atlanta high school, but the plan had been for him to audition in front of at least 25 teams at the Atlanta Some sources speculated that there had been teams interested in making a move with Kaepernick , and could in the weeks after his workout .

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick got some positive feedback on his physical condition and throwing ability following his workout in front of scouts from several NFL teams last weekend, but that has not translated into any potential employment opportunities.

No NFL teams have reached out to Kaepernick to bring him in for a private workout or interview since last Saturday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. The approach from teams has been no different in the wake of Kaepernick’s workout than it has been over the past three years, according to Schefter.

  Colin Kaepernick's agent not optimistic an NFL team will sign the QB Though Kaepernick got some positive reviews following his workout, even the QB's agent is not optimistic that will lead to Kap finding an NFL team.The waiver issue sparked a great deal of debate, with prominent writers like Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk suggesting that the NFL was trying to back Kaepernick into a corner by making him sign a non-standard waiver that would have had him release any employment-related claims that might have arisen after the two sides settled Kaepernick’s collusion case in February.

That may be the case; however, no one has reached out to Kaepernick 's camp to gather information or to do anything to suggest that interest exists. It's possible teams are interested .

There are apparently talent evaluators out there who believe Kaepernick is good enough to be on an NFL roster, but the issue is likely that teams still don’t feel he could provide enough on the field to justify all the media attention and potential distractions he would attract. 

Kaepernick is now 32 and has been out of football for nearly three full seasons, and teams have opted against signing him, even with a ton of injuries at the position this season.

Kaepernick was expected to work out in front of roughly 25 NFL teams at the event the league set up for him in Atlanta, but he changed the location at the last second due to issues over media access and a waiver the NFL asked him to sign. Only a handful of teams chose to drive to the new location, which was located about 60 miles from the Falcons’ facility.

Many have questioned the NFL’s motive in trying to set up a workout for Kaepernick, and we believe we know why the league suddenly came up with the idea. Still, Kaepernick would have had an opportunity to throw in front of more team representatives if he did not change the location of the workout. That may have hurt his chances of finding a job.
