In a unprecedented move the NFL planned a private workout Colin Kaepernick at the Atlanta Falcons stadium, however Kaepernick made a last minute change of venue to allow the media to attend.
The change garnered minimal team attention and could be easily interpreted as another failed publicity stunt.
As noted by the The Federalist Papers, the NFL called him a no show to the event where 25 teams were present.
“We are disappointed that Colin did not appear for his workout,” the NFL said. “Today’s session was designed to give Colin what he has consistently said he wants, an opportunity to show his football readiness and desire to return to the NFL.”
A month after the event the NFL has said that it has had enough of Kaepernick’s shenanigans and has moved on from him, Reuters reported.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said on Wednesday that the league had “moved on” from last month’s long-awaited workout with Colin Kaepernick, three years after the former 49ers quarterback kneeled during the pre-game national anthem in protest of racial injustice.
“This was about creating an opportunity,” Goodell told reporters on Wednesday, at a league meeting. “We created that opportunity. It was a unique opportunity, a credible opportunity and he chose not to take it. I understand that.
“We’ve moved on.”
