Report: NFL will no longer provide list of personnel who'll attend Colin Kaepernick workout

  Report: NFL will no longer provide list of personnel who'll attend Colin Kaepernick workout Additionally, a number of teams have contact Kaepernick’s to preemptively apologize for not being in attendance this weekend, noting they were confused by the timing of the workout. 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.

Jay - Z is unhappy with the way Colin Kaepernick handled his workout on Saturday -- our sources feel Colin "turned a legitimate workout into a publicity stunt." As we previously reported, Colin bailed on the NFL' s workout Saturday and held his own workout instead.

Rapper Jay - Z has voiced his support of Kaepernick , who has been condemned by the NFL for his protests against police brutality. Jay - Z clapped back at the skeptics and made a statement confronting the criticism. He said, “I think we’ve moved past kneeling.

At one point in the three-year Colin Kaepernick saga, Jay-Z publicly supported Kaepernick. In the busiest week of Kaepernick-related news and developments since he became a free-agent in March 2017, Jay-Z has said nothing.

Yes, reports last week suggested that Jay-Z had influence over the decision to stage a workout for 32 teams who have had at all times since Kaepernick became a free agent the ability to work him out whenever they may have wanted to work him out. But others connected to the workout insist that Jay-Z had nothing to do with it, suggesting that he may be simply trying to claim partial credit in order to undo some of the damage done when he partnered with the NFL and promptly downplayed Kaepernick’s quest to return to football.

NFL, Kaepernick camp at odds over whether list of workout attendees was promised

  NFL, Kaepernick camp at odds over whether list of workout attendees was promised The Colin Kaepernick workout isn’t going well, and it hasn’t even started yet. The unprecedented Pro Day workout for a 32-year-old quarterback has resulted in an avalanche of media reports. Not surprisingly, some of them conflict. Earlier today, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that “[a]fter initially agreeing to provide the list of personnel executives and [more]

Jay - Z is disappointed is Colin Kaepernick ' s decision. The NFL released its own statement about the canceled event staying , "we are disappointed that Colin did not appear for his workout" and adding "Colin' s decision has no effect on his status in the League.

Eric Reid believes Colin Kaepernick showed he still has the ability to play in the NFL after the former quarterback worked out in front of scouts over the weekend.

Jay-Z said nothing in the days between the scheduling of the workout last Tuesday and Saturday, the scheduled date for it.

Then came Kaepernick’s non-workout workout, which disintegrated amid P.R. and/or legal maneuverings by both sides. Citing an unnamed source, SI.com reported on Sunday that Jay-Z “disappointed with Colin’s actions and believes he turned a legitimate workout into a publicity stunt.” On Monday, the management, music publishing, and entertainment company owned and operated by Jay-Z posted this tweet: “A source at Roc Nation tells us JAY-Z hasn’t spoken to any sources.”

The unnamed source presumably is named Jay-Z. So why won’t he come out and say something/anything in his own name, with his own voice? Everyone has an opinion on the Kaepernick workout, with the issue quickly becoming the latest sports-related example of the reality that we currently have two different nations of people living in the same country.

Hue Jackson will run Colin Kaepernick's passing drills, 11 teams have said they'll attend

  Hue Jackson will run Colin Kaepernick's passing drills, 11 teams have said they'll attend Hue Jackson will run Colin Kaepernick's passing drills, 11 teams have said they'll attendHue Jackson, the former Cleveland Browns coach who went 3-36-1 before being fired during last season, will run Colin Kaepernick’s unusual private workout Saturday in Atlanta. The NFL announced that, and added that fellow former NFL coach Joe Philbin will also be in attendance.

Last week , the league announced its intention to hold a tryout of sorts for Kaepernick , who has not played in the league since 2017 after kneeling in Jay - Z reportedly fell in the second camp. Sources told TMZ that the rapper felt as though Kaepernick squandered a legitimate opportunity to showcase

Jay - Z has been vocal in support of Kaepernick , who has gone unsigned since the end of the 2016 NFL season. That support was called into question before the start of I think it’ s time to go on to actionable items,“ sparking widespread backlash. But reports surfaced this week that Jay - Z had been working

For most, the choice is binary: Either you hate Kaepernick and blame it all on him, or you support Kaepernick and blame it all on the league. (In this specific situation, it’s possible to blame both sides, and to realize this entire project was doomed from the start. More on that later today.)

Whatever Jay-Z’s position, why won’t he say what it is? For a guy who wore a Kaepernick jersey on SNL in the early months of Kaepernick’s still-lingering unemployment, the silence over the past week has become deafening.

Indeed, even if the source in the tweet from Roc Nation is Jay-Z (and surely it is), all he has said is that he’s said nothing to anyone. Maybe on this specific topic he should say something, to someone.

Hue Jackson thinks NFL personnel people had real interest in Kaepernick .
The coach who was slated to run Colin Kaepernick’s workout at the Falcons’ facility believes personnel people in attendance were genuinely interested in seeing what Kaepernick could do. “There’s no question in my mind that that was the case, that the people who were there were there for that reason, that they were going to [more]“There’s no question in my mind that that was the case, that the people who were there were there for that reason, that they were going to do everything they could to create the right environment for him to show his best,” former Browns and Raiders coach Hue Jackson said today on ESPN.
