Standing up (or kneeling) for his beliefs led the former QB to become an outcast in the NFL, but that hasn’t stopped him from being outspoken about such topics. Now, the Las Vegas Raiders opened their doors for a special workout with Colin Kaepernick.
The NFL team opened the gates of the University of Nevada to let the former player have a few throws, and some drills on the field. Raiders were the first team in the whole league to let Colin touch a football since 2016.
Since the day he decided to take a knee during the National Anthem in protest against police brutality, he said goodbye to his career. Now, six years later he took on the field and “impressed” the Raiders.
Reports say that for a guy who hasn’t been on any other league in such a long time, he still had a good arm and a good sense on the field. Yet, football has changed and they said there were some communication mistakes.
The team has stated that their doors are open, but nothing to confirm they’d be signing Colin Kaepernick as a back-up quarterback. It is expected that some other teams will let him have a workout after the Las Vegas franchise opened that door.
