Colin Kaepernick tells NFL owners to ‘stop being scared’
Colin Kaepernick had a message for NFL owners after completing his workout at a Georgia high school on Saturday.
Kaepernick declined to attend the NFL’s arranged workout at the Atlanta Falcons’ team facility over differences with the NFL regarding a legal waiver and the ability of Kaepernick’s group to record video of the workout. Instead, his representatives asked team scouts and the media to attend a workout at a high school in Riverdale, over an hour away from the Falcons’ facility in Flowery Branch.
Kaepernick threw passes and showcased his “elite” arm, according to one report.
After the workout, Kaepernick spoke and told scouts to tell their owners to “stop being scared.”
