The NFL set up a special Saturday workout for former quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has repeatedly said he’s looking for a team, so that NFL teams could evaluate him and potentially sign him to play again.

Kaepernick, who is currently a free agent, agreed to the workout and over 2 dozen teams said they would be there.

It was scheduled to take place Atlanta Falcons training facility, but at the last minute Kaepernick said that in the interest of “transparency” he was going to change the venue. Apparently there was a dispute with the NFL over media accessibility, liability waivers, and videography.

He instead held the workout open to the media at a high school stadium south of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, sixty miles away from the original facility, where scouts and team representatives had already started assembling.

After all the drama, the session only drew mixed reviews. Some said they were impressed by Kaepernick, while others said his performance was unremarkable.

When he finished, Kaepernick gave a statement saying he was ready to play again, as he had been for three years, and that it was up to the teams. He also said he was glad the media had been in attendance.

Some have called the Saturday fiasco a publicity stunt, and have accused kaepernick of not being serious about playing for the NFL again. He already has a lucrative deal with Nike, and plenty of loyal fans.

We ask you if any NFL team should take a chance on him, or if he even wants to play anymore.
