10: AM PT– – Panthers safetyEric Reid– one of Kaepernick’s biggest supporters – says the workout ” feels like a PR stunt “by the league … but says Kap will be ready for it regardless.
“We’ll see if it’s a real process,” Reid says. “We’ll see if it’s a real event.”
9: 41 AM PT– The Detroit Lions WILL send reps to Colin’s workout, says coachMatt Patricia.
“As an organization, we always do our due diligence on all players that are available … so I know [Bob Quinn] and his staff will have someone down there to watch the workout and we’ll see where that goes. “
Other head coaches are weighing in on the workout at their Wednesday meetings with the media …
The Atlanta Falcons say they ALSO plan on having someone at Kap’s workout. Not a surprise because the workout will take place at the Falcons facility.
Denver Broncos –Vic Fangiosays he’s unsure if the team will be in attendance.
