Upset at league, Kaepernick moves scheduled tryout

It's an unusual move for the league to host something like this for a single player, especially one as controversial as Kaepernick, CBS News correspondent Kenneth Craig reports.

Reid was at Kaepernick's workout at the new high school site.

Paul noted a couple days ago the very public "workout" publicity stunt of Colin Kaepernick, which was scheduled to go off at 3 pm eastern time today at Atlanta Falcons stadium.

The NFL had previously declined to allow media and cameras into the workout, as Kaepernick had requested for transparency, attorney Ben Meiselas and agent Jeff Nalley said in a statement. He and former 49ers teammate Eric Reid filed a collusion grievance through the NFLPA with accusations that the league blackballed him after he protested police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem.

"I think the best case result for Colin Kaepernick out of this workout is signing what is called a futures contract for 2020 and beyond", he said.

2 injured after shooting at New Jersey high school football game
Prosecutors say a 27-year-old man remains hospitalized in stable condition and will be undergoing surgery. Four other men, according the prosecutor's office, were at the game and connected to the shootings.

Former Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson had been set to lead the QB through drills.

To help prepare for Saturday, it only seems fair to rank the teams that will be in attendance to watch Kaepernick in regards to potentially being the most interested in signing the quarterback. If Jay-Z carried any significant weight with the league, like he allegedly does, Kaepernick would've been on a roster already. In a league in which teams employ at least two signal-callers, it's hard to argue that there are 64 professional quarterbacks more talented than Kaepernick. That's odd. So we'll see what happens. A few teams have said they intend to send someone to the workout, but there has been no word from many others.

"The NFL asked me to do it".

However, by Thursday, word emerged from league officials that no such list will be provided to the player and his team, ESPN reported.

But if we've learned anything in the last 48 hours, it's that nothing involving Kaepernick is going fall short of attracting the full attention of about every media outlet in the country.
