    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- If there is anything we learned from the fiasco that was Colin Kaepernick’s workout Saturday is that it was more about appearances than it was ever about football. For the league, the original, hastily organized, workout seemed to be about protecting itself from a potential second collusion lawsuit than giving Kaepernick another chance to play in the NFL. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have put media restrictions on it or presented him with an “unusual” waiver to sign just hours before. For Kaepernick, the workout, which was scrapped and moved at the last minute to a high school 60...

    He Finally Did ItIn the three years since Colin Kaepernick knelt his way off of the San Francisco 49ers and out of the National Football League, the one thing the drama has lacked is ambivalence. People either hated him or viewed him as social hero who was being mistreated and prevented from playing the game he loves. Now everybody just hates him. Throughout his supposedly unwanted hiatus from football, Kaepernick and those representing him have insisted that he is staying in playing shape and merely wanted a chance to showcase his skills for a team.Last week, the NFL offered him that...

Per a league source, Kaepernick’s representatives have not heard from any teams with either an invitation to work out privately or an offer to sign a contract.

    Colin Kaepernick showed off his arm strength in a highly publicized workout at a high school outside of Atlanta on Saturday, but the former 49ers quarterback reportedly didn't "blow away" any talent evaluators. Kaepernick showed he was "[good] enough to be on a roster, likely backup level" in the eyes of a "consensus scouting report" NFL Media's Ian Rapoport gathered, citing sources, but his colleague Mike Garafolo reported Sunday that there didn't seem to be much interest in Kaepernick. "He had to blow some teams away," Garafolo said Sunday on "NFL GameDay." "He didn't do that." Kaepernick's "velocity was real...

    Colin Kaepernick abruptly canceled the workout the NFL scheduled for him Saturday, and instead worked out at a local Atlanta high school wearing a shirt comparing himself to a slave. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has not played since the end of the 2016 season, the same season he began protesting against the country as the national anthem played. But his exclusion from pro football has been a focus of attention as supporters claim he has been “blackballed” from the league for his extreme, left-wing activism.

    Jay-Z is unhappy with the way Colin Kaepernick handled his workout on Saturday -- our sources feel Colin "turned a legitimate workout into a publicity stunt." As we previously reported, Colin bailed on the NFL's workout Saturday and held his own workout instead. Colin claims he wanted transparency -- insisting the NFL would not allow him to have media at the workout. Sources close to Jay-Z tell us ... Jay is unhappy with the way things went down because he feels the league was genuine in trying to give Colin an opportunity. Colin went through with his workout at a...

    During a recess late in a trial where the plaintiff alleged he had been fired due to his race and/or his age, a federal district court judge said to his law clerk: Sure, this guy was discriminated against. But he wasn’t discriminated against because he’s black and he wasn’t discriminated against because he’s over 40. He was discriminated because he’s an ass***e. It might well be the case that, a few years ago, Colin Kaepernick was discriminated because he led a mini-movement that resulted in some NFL players taking a knee during the National Anthem. I never managed to feel...

However, after Kaepernick refused to agree to the league’s conditions regarding the workout, the league’s original anthem protester did a work out at a local Atlanta high school instead.

    2:42 PM PT -- Colin's workout appears to have just finished -- about an hour and a half after it got started. He's made his way over to a gate where it looks like he's signing autographs as the media looks on from afar. 2:00 PM PT -- The NFL just released a statement saying that Colin actually MISSED his scheduled workout, which seems to imply that whatever he's doing right now is NOT NFL sponsored. The league goes on to say that despite its best efforts to cooperate with him and his team's ever-changing requests ... he pulled out...
