The Washington Redskins signed wide receiver Jordan Veasy to their practice squad Wednesday, and Veasy told the Washington Post he doesn't believe he'd have a job without that workout.

“It helped,” the 24-year-old said. “That’s one of the reasons I wanted to be a part of it. Just being a part of the history of it, and I knew it was going to help me.”

NFL, Kaepernick still at odds on failed workout

  NFL, Kaepernick still at odds on failed workout A week after Colin Kaepernick’s NFL workout fell apart, disagreements and distrust about it remain on issues such as its timing, who was invited and who could film the quarterback. In conversations with The Associated Press, representatives from both sides blamed each other for what went wrong on Nov. 16. Kaepernick’s side said the NFL orchestrated a workout as a public relations stunt destined to fail, while the league said it gave him a real chance to show off his skills — and he didn’t show up.

The 24-year-old went undrafted in 2018 and had signed with four teams since, most recently the Buffalo Bills earlier this season. So when the Gadsen, Alabama, native heard Kaepernick was working out in front of NFL scouts less than two hours away at the Atlanta Falcons' practice facility in Flowery Branch, Georgia, he reached out to his old classmate's agent.

“I was going to be in Gadsden running routes anyway,” Veasy told the Post. “Might as well run 'em in front of some scouts.”

Report: No teams express interest in Kaepernick since workout

  Report: No teams express interest in Kaepernick since workout The approach from teams has been no different in the wake of Colin Kaepernick’s workout than it has been over the past three years, according to Schefter.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.

Veasy was on the receiving end of one of the more viral clips to emerge from the workout, which was moved to Charles R. Drew High School in Riverdale, Georgia, after Kaepernick's team and the league could not agree to terms. Kaepernick unleashed a deep ball 50 yards downfield, and Veasy tracked it down in the end zone.

The Cleveland Browns flew him in nine days after the workout, according to the Post, but he did not sign a deal. Veasy remained unemployed until the Redskins called him this week, which made sense — Veasy said he saw Richard Mann II, who attended his pro day last year and is the Redskins’ assistant director of pro personnel, at the workout, per the Post.

"It was surreal," Veasy told the Post.

Colin Kaepernick , the San Francisco 49ers quarterback who touched off a national debate when he chose not to stand during the playing of the national anthem before games, has emboldened a handful of other players to follow suit.
