NFL teams invited to Colin Kaepernick private workout this weekend

Kaepernick, who led the 49ers to the 2013 Super Bowl, hasn't played for NFL since early 2017.

(3TV/CBS 5) -- The Arizona Cardinals will be in attendance when quarterback Colin Kaepernick holds a workout on Saturday in Atlanta.

The NFL communication department tweeted that the Cardinals would be among the 11 teams present, and that more would likely be added.

Earlier this week, Kaepernick—who guided the San Francisco 49ers to Super Bowl XLVII—posted on Twitter: "I'm just getting word from my representatives that the NFL league office reached out to them about a workout in Atlanta on Saturday. I've been in shape and ready for this for 3 years, can't wait to see the head coaches and GMs on Saturday."

Kaepernick hasn't played in the NFL since 2016. He was at the forefront of protests about social and racial injustice that season by kneeling during the national anthem at games.

In February, the NFL settled a collusion grievance Kaepernick and former teammate Eric Reid filed against the league.
