Colin Kaepernick has been added to the LA Chargers workout list.
Could this be a sign that the NFL is finally coming to their senses and making amends for unfairly blackballing Kap?
Things seem to be looking positive for him. Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said on Wednesday that,
“It would be crazy to not have him on your workout list. … I haven’t spoken with Colin, not sure where he’s at as far in his career, what he wants to do, but Colin definitely fits the style of quarterback for the system that we’re going to be running. I’m very confident and happy with the three quarterbacks that I have but you can never have too many people waiting on the runway.”Anthony Lynn – Chargers Head Coach
Lynn has said that Kap has been looking good in the offseason. Kap’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, says that he expects one of the teams to sign him in 2020.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goddell said this week that he would encourage a club to sign Kap. Of course, since this is a necessary step a team doing so would save his behind because the leagues viewership is in jeapordy if no one signs him.
So, what does being on a NFL team’s “workout list” mean?
Unfortunately it doesn’t automatically mean that he will get a tryout but it does mean that he is automatically on the short list of people called if one of their current quarterbacks is injured or traded.
So why is this worthy of news?
Because it’s a sign that NFL teams are finally making amends and not only rehiring Kap, but also giving their players the respect that support that they deserve. By blackballing Kap and taking an antagonistic with their protests they gave off the appearance of not supporting the players.
This acceptance of Kaepernick shows that we are turning a corner in pro sports and America in general. It’s long overdue.
