Colin Kaepernick to hold private workout in Atlanta this weekend, reports say

Both the NFL Network and ESPN are reporting that all NFL teams are invited to attend.

ATLANTA — Multiple reports show former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick will be in metro Atlanta this weekend for a private workout. 

Both the NFL Network and ESPN are reporting that all NFL teams are invited to attend. 

Kaepernick hasn't played in an NFL game since 2016, when he began protesting racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem while playing for the San Francisco 49ers.

On Twitter, the quarterback said he "can't wait to see the head coaches and GMs on Saturday."

The workout is not specific to the Atlanta Falcons; the NFL Network said the league set the session up.
