NFL insider Adam Schefter broke the news on Twitter this afternoon that NFL teams were informed that a private workout would be held this Saturday in Atlanta for Colin Kaepernick. The session includes an on-field workout and an interview and will be recorded for those teams who can’t attend.

Kaepernick reacted on Twitter, stating league representatives reached out to him about the workout, and he’s been waiting three years for this opportunity.
I’m just getting word from my representatives that the NFL league office reached out to them about a workout in Atlanta on Saturday. I’ve been in shape and ready for this for 3 years, can’t wait to see the head coaches and GMs on Saturday.— Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) November 13, 2019
After Kaepernick’s reaction, Schefter mentioned the NFL didn’t inform his reps of the Saturday workout until this morning. Kaepernick’s reps asked for a Tuesday workout or a different Saturday, but the NFL said no.
As Colin Kaepernick tweeted, the NFL didn't inform his reps of Saturday's workout in Atlanta until this morning. Kaepernick's reps asked for workout to be on a Tuesday, the day of most workouts, but NFL said it had to be this Saturday. He asked for a later Saturday; NFL said no.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 13, 2019
His reps have reached out to the NFL in hopes of a list of those attending the workout.
A source indicated to me that the Atlanta Falcons privately expressed preliminary interest in Kaepernick during a recent discussion.
This could be Kaepernick’s last chance to rejoin the league.
