On Tuesday, we learned that Colin Kaepernick is set to work out for NFL teams at the Falcons’ facility. Today, we have more details on the surprise audition, via NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (on Twitter).

On Saturday, Kaepernick’s workout will have something of a draft combine feel. He’ll get started at 3pm ET, interview at 3:15pm ET, and take measurements and warmup afterwards. He’ll be timed and tested at 3:50 and conduct quarterback drills at 4:15, with all parts being recorded for distribution to all 32 NFL teams.

  Cowboys to be among NFL teams in attendance for Colin Kaepernick's workout Despite owner Jerry Jones' stance of mandating players stand for the anthem, the Cowboys will be in attendance for Colin Kaepernick's workout.Although Cowboys coach Jason Garrett would not confirm it during a briefing with local reporters, a person with knowledge of the team’s plans told USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday that the team will have a representative at the workout and interview, which will be conducted at the Falcons’ headquarters. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the team's intentions.

Since becoming a free agent, Kaepernick has only received a workout invitation from one team — the Seahawks — and that was in the summer of 2017. Later on, the Seahawks cancelled a 2018 visit with the polarizing QB. The passer’s camp also spoke to both the Alliance of American Football and the XFL. In each instance, his camp reportedly asked for a $20M salary, consistent with the middle tier of signal-callers in the NFL.

Several clubs have reportedly inquired about Kaepernick’s football readiness and Kaep’s camp says he’s been “working out five days a week, for three years, in preparation to play again,” per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

An exec from one NFC team says they have “nothing to lose” by attending the workout (Twitter link via ESPN’s Josina Anderson). The full list of attending teams is not yet known, but the Cowboys will be among them, Anderson hears (Twitter link).

NFL executives weren’t the only ones caught off guard by the planned audition — Kaepernick himself didn’t even know about the workout until the league informed him of it, as Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes. The NFL hasn’t given any indication as to why it’s holding a tryout for Kaepernick at this time, but the league wouldn’t budge on a date, time or what will happen at the workout.
