Redskins Make Surprising Colin Kaepernick Decision

The Redskins made a surprising Colin Kaepernick decision this week.

In mid-November the NFL announced that it would be holding a big workout for Kaepernick. It was a surprising move, but one that many thought might be beneficial for the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback.

Kaepernick had been out of the league since 2016, and many believed that this workout could go some ways in remedying that situation.

It was reported that something in the range of 20 teams planned to attend the NFL’s workout at the Atlanta Falcons’ stadium.

Unfortunately, on the day of the workout Kaepernick opted to call an audible. Apparently he and his team were unsatisfied with the waiver the NFL wanted them to sign, so they hosted their own workout on the same day 60 miles away.

According to multiple reports, only seven or eight teams showed up to that one.

After the fact, the big question on everyone’s mind was whether Kaepernick’s personal workout would be enough to earn him a place on a team.

As it turns out, it wasn’t. Nobody called him.

But someone did call wide receiver Jordan Veasy, one of the guys who Kaepernick was throwing to at his special workout.

On Wednesday, Washington signed Veasy to their practice squad.

One of the big highlights of Kaepernick’s day at the workout was a nifty 50-yard throw. Who was on the receiving end of that throw? The Redskins’ newest signee.

“It helped,” Veasy told the Washington Post of the impact the workout had on him getting signed.

“That’s one of the reasons I wanted to be a part of it. Just being a part of the history of it, and I knew it was going to help me.”

Veasy was 60 miles away in Gadsden, Alabama, when he heard about Kaepernick’s workout.

“I was going to be in Gadsden running routes anyway,” he told paper.

“Might as well run ’em in front of some scouts.”

Veasy played at Cal for two years before going pro. Over the course of those two seasons he caught 63 passes for 797 yards.

It remains to be seen what impact, if any, he will have on the Redskins offense.

Kaepernick, meanwhile, remains on the sidelines – waiting for his big shot at playing in the pros one more time.

  1. That is great news that no one called him. He’s a moron who thinks he should get special treatment. He’s not a special case. They need to send him back to elementary school to learn some history. He said the original American flag was offensive to African Americans because white supremacists use it. He’s so stupid he thinks the rebel flag was our first American flag. It was the red and white striped with a circle of 13 stars sewed by Susan B. Anthony. How did he even get a chance to play pro football if he doesn’t know well known facts like that. He would have lost his academic scholarship for failing school. I guess if you can throw a football you allowed to be completely stupid. That’s why America’s going to hell. I’m so glad his football career is over. Who wants a crybaby idiot in the league anyway, good riddance.

    1. If you had a brain you would be dangerous if you reffering to the kneeling that was to show that young black men was being murder by white police offcier before you take your racier ass an start speaking negative about this African American young man understand what it all about. Watch you mouth.

      1. STFU with your “watch your mouth” shit. You can’t even speak proper English, you sound like a retard or a street hood, same thing. Colon Slappydick is an Iranian or something, look at him. The only part of him that’s black is his giant Brillo pad hair, hense, why I call him “quarter-black”.

  2. Wears a Fidel Castro T-shirt to a press conference. Reveres Che Guevara. Two Cuban thugs who oppressed their own people, especially black Cubans. Che had his own death squads.

    Does Kaep, JayZ, QueenBey have any f-ing clue about history, civics..? They are truly uneducated morons

    Let’s not forget Kaep’s ‘Cops are pigs’ socks he wore on the sideline. what a colossal POS

  3. Hey David Spralling, when you quit school what grade were you in? Reason I ask is because you can not spell worth a crap. Especially considering where technology is today with auto correction spell check on every smart phone sold today. Colin Kaep is an idiot for making the statements he has made in the past. Especially considering his position in the NFL. He’s supposed to be a roll model for our youth by displaying positive actions. One foolish move(wearing ‘cops are pigs’ sock) is immature and STUPID. So you should keep your comments to yourself and accept the obvious. Colin Kaep is an f’ing immature racist kid. Everyone else knows this is true so get on board pal.

  4. You are all wrong in your assessment s and your’e all prejudice one towards each other,, ,the whole point of your debates over him ,and his character is a waist of time ,how bout focusing on something better in life ,,you do have lives right ,,?

    1. Joe Brown, well, I guess the one thing worse than us commenting about this dipshit would be commenting about us commenting. He’s a piss poor decision making dipshit. And you get a little crazy with the commas there don’t ya. STFU.
