Cowboys Are Taking A Hard Look At Colin Kaepernick
The Dallas Cowboys are taking a hard look at Colin Kaepernick, it would appear.
On Tuesday afternoon word came out that the NFL had set up a special workout for Kaepernick.
Given the tense relationship that the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and the league have had ever since the 2016 kneeling controversy, this came as something of a surprise to fans.
According to ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter, not only did the league set the workout up for Kaepernick – they also sent an invitation out for it to all team coaches and general managers.
In the immediate aftermath of this news, the main question on everyone’s mind was: yeah, but who will actually be interested?
Well, as it turns out, there appear to be a couple of squads.
According to ESPN NFL reporter Josina Anderson, Dallas and an unnamed NFC squad are both taking a real look at Kaepernick.
After speaking to another team from my last tweet, as of now, I’m told there is interest within the #Cowboys organization to send at least one representative to Colin Kaepernick’s workout, per source.

“I’m told there is interest within the Cowboys organization to send at least one representative to Colin Kaepernick’s workout, per source,” Anderson said.
What is most interesting about this whole situation is the timing.
There was a stretch earlier in the year where a bunch of the NFL’s to quarterbacks went down with injury.
At various points in the season Cam Newton, Patrick Mahomes, Nick Foles, Ben Roethlisberger and Sam Darnold all got hurt.
If ever there was a time to give Kaepernick a ring – that would have seemed to be it. And yet nobody did.
Either way, the fact that the Cowboys are showing any interest whatsoever is definitely an interesting development.
Will anything actually come of it?
Time will tell.
