The NFL which has been involved in legal action with Colin Kaepernick, offered him a workout in Atlanta and invited every team in the league to be present to see if they wanted to hire him.

The session would have allowed him to demonstrate his ability and be interviewed, and it would have been taped and made available to the teams.

Kaepernick’s response?

He cancelled shortly before, allegedly stating issues including that he wasn’t able to bring his own camera crew.

From Daily Wire:

“The workout was originally set for 3 p.m. and was to be held at the Atlanta Falcons’ practice facility in Flowery Branch,” CBS News reported. “At 2:30, representatives for the free agent quarterback informed the league that Kaepernick would instead be conducting the workout at 4 p.m. at Drew High School in Riverdale, Georgia.”

After dissing the NFL, Kaepernick, a multimillionaire endorsed by Nike, attended his own workout in a “Kunta Kinte” t-shirt, comparing himself to defiant slave from the movie “Roots.” The film showcases an iconic scene wherein Kunta Kinte is whipped by his master for refusing to acknowledge his slave name, Toby.

Kunta Kinte was ripped from his home, kept as a slave, had his foot chopped off and had his daughter stolen from him.

Kaepernick went free agent, didn’t get an offer and has made millions pitching Nike.

Obviously just like Kunta Kinte.

Kaepernick’s remarks also didn’t sound much like a person applying for a job.

The NFL responded.

And Kaepernick’s antics didn’t go over well.

NFL should just say, sorry, you blew it, we’re done.
