Kaeper­nick plans to work out for NFL teams

Lodi News-Sentinel - - SPORTS - — Sam Farmer, Los An­ge­les Times

Quar­ter­back Colin Kaeper­nick will be fea­tured in a pri­vate work­out Satur­day ar­ranged by the NFL and to be held in Atlanta.

In a memo sent to all 32 teams Tues­day and ob­tained by the Los An­ge­les Times, the league alerted gen­eral man­agers, head coaches, and player per­son­nel di­rec­tors that there will be a work­out and in­ter­view of Kaeper­nick at Atlanta Fal­cons head­quar­ters. There will be a record­ing of the ses­sion made avail­able to all clubs.

Kaeper­nick, who hasn’t played in the NFL since 2016 with the San Fran­cisco 49ers, was at the cen­ter of protests about racial and so­cial in­jus­tice, sparked when he knelt dur­ing the na­tional an­them at games. In Fe­bru­ary, the league set­tled a griev­ance filed by Kaeper­nick and for­mer team­mate Eric Reid.

One NFL team ex­ec­u­tive, while not dis­miss­ing the value of a Kaeper­nick work­out, said it comes at a par­tic­u­larly in­con­ve­nient time for teams.
