Colin Kaepernick workout moved to allow media to attend for transparency
The NFL’s Colin Kaepernick workout continues to be troubled by disagreements between the league and Kaepernick’s camp.
The latest update is that Kaepernick’s workout in Atlanta has been moved back an hour and shifted to another location. This is to allow the media to attend and view proceedings. In a statement from Kaepernick’s representatives, they blamed the NFL for the shift, claiming that the league was not allowing for a transparent process and blocking media from attending.
Colin Kaepernick’s workout at the Falcons’ training facility at 3 pm is off; his workout now will be at another Atlanta location at 4 pm today.

Essentially, Kaepernick’s camp more or less states that the league isn’t treating the process legitimately. That will only embolden critics who believe that the NFL is doing this as something of a PR move. Kaepernick still appears intent on going through with the workout, but it certainly seems that the player’s camp is taking control of the process at their terms on this point because they believe they’re being treated unfairly. It’s still quite awkward that this all happened a half hour before the originally scheduled start.
Given all the drama, it’s becoming increasingly understandable why some people were skeptical that this workout would ever even happen.
