Packers Overtime Podcast: Talking Kaepernick
Taking politics out of the equation as much as possible, here's what Saturday meant for Colin Kaepernick's NFL future.
Colin Kaepernick showed Saturday that he can do two things required for NFL success: throw a deep ball, and avoid Hue Jackson. Unfortunately, this probably does not bring him closer to getting an NFL job. Kaepernick’s workout for eight teams, and the chaos and mistrust that colored it, was like most of his three seasons out of the league: It was not about whether he can play football.
The league waited until Tuesday to tell Kaepernick it would host a workout for him Saturday, privately in Atlanta, on the league’s terms. He responded by waiting until Saturday to move the workout to another Atlanta location, on his terms, in front of the public, with cameras broadcasting it. What does this mean? Well, it means exactly what you want to believe it means.
Kaepernick took the football world by storm in a couple of memorable performances against the Green Bay Packers. The Packers also had a role in his demise.
