The NFL announced Thursday that 11 teams have committed to attend Colin Kaepernick’s workout in Atlanta. Some of the teams include: Atlanta Falcons, NY Jets, NY Giants, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots.

After three days of hammering out details on the NFL’s surprise pro day offer to Colin Kaepernick, the free-agent quarterback is going forward with the league’s workout and interview session on Saturday in Atlanta. Thirty-Two (32) teams have been invited. Colin’s tweeted he’s in shape and ready for it.

Free-Agent Kaepernick is attending despite a significant amount of skepticism regarding the event — including some from current NFL players who have raised an eyebrow at the short notice for the workout, as well as it being scheduled on a work-heavy Saturday for most of the league.

We can’t forget Kaepernick’s journey as star Quarter-Back for his team, he took the 49ers to the Super Bowl. In taking a knee in 2016 to protest police brutality, the NFL and its teams colluded to keep him from playing following his refusal to stand during the National Anthem.

Kaepernick hasn’t played in the league since the 2016 season — the same season he first sat outat during the playing of the National Anthem. Over the years several teammates and fans continue to support his stance, including boycotting the NFL.

Alot of chatter across social media about how Kaepernick wants to showcase his commitment to getting back into the league! This will be a history breaking moment this weekend, if things go in a forward momentum.

Could this be the end of the three-year-old saga of Colin Kaepernick and the NFL? One can only hope!
