He’s a dick, plain and simple. Here’s why: The NFL took a guy that pretty much was the biggest heel in football to probably 30-40% of their fan base ( pretty much the over-40 demographic) and turned him into the biggest baby face they’ve ever had. All Kaepernick needed to do was show up at that sham of a workout and prove to everyone that he was the bigger man than Goodell. All he had to do was just throw it back into their faces and prove to everybody that the organized workout was a joke and a bunch of the teams just showed up as a favor to the league. He could’ve done all of this and proven even more how badly he’s gotten fucked over. But he blew it. He pissed off a LOT of teams by pulling this stunt, and he’s lucky that six took the trip to see him. The only good thing that came out of it is that he can honestly say that those six teams have at least tire-kicking interest - you know damn well the other 16 teams that didn’t go really didn’t care. But after this, I can’t imagine him ever getting signed . And if we are to believe that he asked the XFL for an 8-figure contract, it’s a lock that he will never play again, because at this point no team would sign him for more than the veteran minimum until he proved himself. I guess it goes to show that people think he’s not as talented as he thinks he is, because Michael Vick did far worse things than him and got close to $30M right out of jail.

Didn’t Colin opt out of his contract with the 9ers years ago? Didn’t Seattle try to sign him and he wanted too much? Or am I remembering any of that incorrectly?

I hope Detroit signs him. They have 2 QB that no one has ever heard of.

That wasn't a workout, it was a game of catch.

Since this no talent dipshit is a black panther, and the Panthers have no QB's, maybe Carolina should sign him?  Oh, that's right. I almost forgot after 3 years. KAEPERNICK FUCKING SUCKS as a QB! So maybe that's a no.

Where are these nameless, faceless , invisible white men holding you back, dipshit?

Oh, that's right. I almost forgot after 3 years. KAEPERNICK FUCKING SUCKS as a QB!, so he has to blame the white man. 

I heard the Niner reps at his workout racket were the janitor at Levi Stadium and the guy who washes/sniffs the jockstraps. Jed York wouldn't piss on dipshit's fake afro if it was on fire, nor should he.

I have no problem with dipshit not standing for the NA, because neither do I. We just do it for the opposite reasons. Fuck you, you racist dipshit murderer!

Dipshit demanded a high salary, knowing that Seattle couldn't possibly pay that much for a backup QB. He did that because he didn't want to play anymore, and he still doesn't. Jussie Smollett has got nothing on dipshit. Two racists phoney bitches.

Two racists phoney bitches.You are incorrect.  Yes, he did opt out.  The reason he opted out was that he was told by the Niners that they were going to cut him on July 1 for the salary cap relief.  So he opted out to give himself more time to find a job.  That part worked, he's had a lot more time to find a job.  There is no doubt in my mind that he is capable of playing a part on an NFL franchise.  My problem with him is that I don't think he really WANTS to.  I think that all of this is being done to keep his Nike deal alive, personally, because he's making more from Nike than he can in the NFL.  Nobody is willing to pay him more than $2-3M, if that.  And the bullshit he pulled over the weekend - even if he was 100% correct in doing it because of the NFL putting that sham of a "workout" together in the first place - just proves that he's thinking about himself first and not a team that will sign him.  This workout would have proven that he cares more about playing the game and becoming a member of a team than being all about himself.  And he took the bait and made himself look really bad.

Wearing a Kunte Kinte shirt and ripping the NFL after playing catch I doubt anyone will sign him. Those that did show up to high school did they get a chance to interview him or did he run off?

I really think he screwed up because in my opinion the two teams most likely to give him a chance were Denver and Carolina, and neither of them went to the workout after he pulled his shit.

The workout drama made both sides look foolish. I can't imagine what the NFL was thinking by organizing this workout for Kaepernick with essentially no notice while giving him only two hours to decide if he was in or out on the day it contacted him. If the NFL wanted to play the game of saying it gave him a chance, only for him to look bad in the workout or no teams wanting to deal with the baggage despite him looking good, then having a shotgun deal to set the thing up at midseason on a Saturday, not in his home area as far as I know, when coaches were preparing for Sunday games, and scouts were already booked for college games would not accomplish anything but making the player look sympathetic. Then there was the initial refusal by the NFL to let the media in which once again accomplished nothing but making the league look like heels and served no useful purpose.

Kaepernick played it wrong from his side too. He wanted to film a Nike ad as part of the workout, something that didn't belong at the proceedings and that he was foolish to ask to do.The switch of the venue from the Atlanta Falcons facility to a local high school field needlessly inconvenienced every team rep that came to see him work out and was completely pointless as anything but a power play. Some of the team reps bagged it and Kaepernick worked out in front of far fewer of the people he needed to see the workout than would have been the case had he gone to the Falcons HQ. He wore the Kunta Kinte t-shirt which would only stir up trouble with many fans, sponsors, TV networks, and media members, giving teams on the fence plenty of reason to not to sign him. Former Raiders and Browns head coach Hue Jackson was going to run the workout on the NFL's behalf, but pulled out after the last minute venue change, believing the player wasn't taking things seriously.

I heard ESPN's Falcons beat reporter on ESPN Radio last night and he thought the workout wasn't so much about getting Kaepernick signed this season given the late date as it was to get him in the frame for 2020 off season camps. He thought Kaepernick looked fine considering his time off and the nature of the workout, not that he'd sign him tomorrow, but that from a purely football standpoint it would be worth it for a team to bring him in to get a closer look. However, the reporter added that the high road Kaepernick could have gained due to the somewhat shady way in which the NFL scheduled this workout was forfeited by his own conduct and that him getting signed might actually have decreased due to the workout, if such a thing is possible.
