NFL Will Not Give Colin Kaepernick List of Attendees for Workout. Kaepernick and his representatives will not know which executives and coaches plan to attend his workout. Multiple teams have announced they will attend the workout, but they will not be announced by name, according to ESPN. On Tuesday, the NFL announced the private workout, which is scheduled to take place Saturday in Atlanta. The workout will include on-field work and an interview with the former quarterback. Kaepernick's representatives requested for the workout to be on a Tuesday, the typical day for NFL workouts. Nearly half of the NFL teams will be traveling to games on Saturday during the workout. Kaepernick has not played in the NFL since 2016, . when he began protesting police brutality and racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem. Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid, who joined Kaepernick in kneeling, said the Saturday workout "feels disingenuous.". "I'll believe it when I see it. At this point, it feels like a PR stunt." - Eric Reid, via statement
