Colin Kaepernick showcased his skills for NFL teams just over a week ago at a workout at a local Atlanta high school. In the week since Colin Kaepernick’s failed publicity stunt, evidently not one NFL team has reached out to him. I’d call that an epic fail. I’m shocked that NFL teams don’t want a guy who has not played in three years and who is a political nuclear bomb. Shocked, I tell you.
According to Breitbart, 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 Falcons practice facility. However, after Kaepernick’s camp insisted on making the workout open to the media, out of concerns about transparency, the negotiations were doomed. In addition, the two sides could not reach an agreement over an injury liability waiver. Kaepernick was never serious about signing with a team… he just wanted the publicity.
“After the league and Kaepernick’s reps were unable to reach a compromise on those issues, Kapernick suddenly declined to appear at the NFL organized workout and chose the high school instead. Only seven NFL teams traveled to the new site to watch the former 49er work out at the high school.
“According to Schefter:
“The fact that the NFL tried to spark interest in Kaepernick last week, and could not, and that his reps made sure that video of the workout was delivered to every team, are just the latest signs that the chances are bleak that a team will step forward and sign him.
“Some sources speculated that there had been teams interested in making a move with Kaepernick, and could in the weeks after his workout. But nothing has materialized, and nothing is expected to at this time.
“After completing his 40-minute workout on Nov. 16, Kaepernick said he’s ready for another opportunity and wants the league to ‘stop running” from him.
“Kaepernick’s reps did send video of the workout to the 25 teams that were not in attendance, but that effort doesn’t seem to have prompted any offers either.”

Again, who wouldn’t want a second-rate, racist, cop-hating, America-hating, social justice-loving football player? It boggles the mind. As Twitchy put it, “Let’s be honest … if America were any kind of a just nation, Kaepernick would be worth more than something like $20 measly million.”
Even ESPN thinks his career is dead and for a change, they are right.
“The fact that the NFL tried to spark interest in Kaepernick last week, and could not, and that his reps made sure that video of the workout was delivered to every team, are just the latest signs that the chances are bleak that a team will step forward and sign him,” wrote ESPN senior writer Adam Schefter following the workout.

Kaepernick was a drama queen over the whole thing. “I’ve been ready for three years. I’ve been denied for three years. We all know why I came out here. [I] showed it today in front of everybody,” Kaepernick said following his workout. He said this while wearing a slavery t-shirt. No self-awareness whatsoever here or maybe too much.
“We have nothing to hide. So we’re waiting for the 32 owners, 32 teams, Roger Goodell, all of them to stop running. Stop running from the truth. Stop running from the people,” he added. Give us all a break, please.
This is stunning. What team wouldn’t want this major headache as a media distraction for their back up QB? https://t.co/xRfcOazbR9

ESPN’s report directly refutes claims made by Kaepernick attorney Mark Geragos, who said last week that two teams have showed interest in Kaepernick following the workout. You don’t think Kaepernick and his lawyer were lying, do you? Surely not.
Let’s just end this nonsense. The League doesn’t want Kaepernick back and neither does America. He needs to just ride off into the social justice sunset and be done with it.
He was a weak back up years ago
Now he's a weak, out of shape, troublemaking loser
Can't imagine why no one called https://t.co/waO6e3YLD5
