Colin Kaepernick Begs For Second Chance After Botched Workout
Colin Kaepernick is begging for second chance after his botched workout, it would appear.
Kaepernick, 32, participated in a disappointing workout this past Saturday.
Initially the NFL organized a special workout at the Atlanta Falcons’ stadium that was due to be attended by 20+ NFL teams and various members of the media.
Kaepernick originally agreed to participate in this workout, but pulled out at the last minute over a disagreement regarding the waiver the NFL wanted him to sign.
Instead, Kaepernick hosted an event 60 miles away that was attended by only seven or eight teams.
Now, on the heels, of that disappointing event, Kaepernick appears to be realizing that he messed up.
Rather than take advantage of Saturday’s opportunity to show people that he wanted to be on an NFL roster, he opted to make a statement.
Make a statement he definitely did – but it probably wasn’t the one he was hoping to make.
According to ESPN’s Howard Bryant, when he asked Kaepernick’s agent Jeff Nalley about whether he thought anything would come from the workout, the reply was less than optimistic.
“I hope so, but I don’t know,” Nalley replied.
“I’ll be honest, I’m a little bit pessimistic because I’ve talked to all 32 teams. I’ve reached out to them recently, and none of them have had any interest. I’ll tell you this: No team asked for this workout. The league office asked for this workout.
Now, Kaepernick is essentially reduced for begging for a second chance by staging another workout during the owners meeting at Palm Beach in March where all 32 teams will be represented.
11) Next: Nalley sent all 32 teams the raw footage of the workout with a note offering Colin to speak to any team either by phone or in person. Nalley said they are considering a 2nd workout during the owners meeting at Palm Beach in March where all 32 owners/GMs/coaches will be.

The reality is, if this workout had been done correctly, Kaepernick would not need yet another workout to prove himself to NFL official.
Will Kaepernick ultimately get another shot to redeem himself in the eyes of teams at the owners meeting?
We’ll all find out together in March, apparently.
