Colin Kapernick has now gone nearly three years without wearing an NFL uniform. A decision by the NFL to host a workout for the former quarterback has sparked the hope that he could soon be back to the field.
Kaepernick announced via a tweet on Tuesday night that he had been contacted by his representatives about the possibility of a workout that the NFL had facilitated. Later, the news was confirmed that the former 49ers quarterback would work out for NFL coaches and general managers on Saturday in Atlanta.
A memo obtained by the press details that Kaepernick will perform both an on-field workout as well as participate in an interview session following the completion of the workout.
So far, the coaches of the Miami Dolphins, Atlanta Falcons, and Detroit Lions have confirmed that their personnel will attend the session. It has also been reported by sources that the Dallas Cowboys will have someone attending the workout.
It appears likely that more franchises will join the list by the time Saturday rolls around.
In any case, it appears that the polarizing six-year NFL veteran will finally have a chance to return to the league he once was a mainstay in. It still remains to be seen whether his dream will come true or not.
