Weeks after he blew off his NFL tryout to instead workout for the media, Colin Kaepernick still doesn’t have an NFL job, or even any known prospects.
Kaepernick’s agent, Jeff Nalley, recently told ESPN that he sent footage of the former star quarterback’s performance to all 32 NFL teams, but he found zero potential takers. His lawyer, Mark Mark Geragos later claimed two teams might still be interested, but he did not name them.
According to Nalley, Kaepernick, 32, was thinking about following the NFL owners to a March summit in Palm Beach, Florida, in bid to regain their attention.
Meanwhile, in a potentially embarrassing development, Kaepernick’s stunt has paid off for another player attempting an NFL comeback.
The Washington Post reported Wednesday that a little-known wide receiver whom Kaepernick invited to his workout to catch passes was signed to the Washington Redskins practice squad.
Jordan Veasy, 24, appeared in a viral video from the workout in which Kaepernick threw him a deep strike in the end zone of an Atlanta-area high school. Kaepernick fans hailed the clip as proof he still has game, but NFL teams took note of Veasy.
“It helped,” said Veasy, who heard from at least two teams following the workout. “That’s one of the reasons I wanted to be a part of it. Just being a part of the history of it, and I knew it was going to help me.”
