Colin Kaepernick has been a lightning rod in recent years and his opportunity to finally workout for NFL teams on Saturday went no differently.
After a disagreement about the way the workout would go down in Atlanta, Kaepernick moved the time and location.
Per a release from the NFL at 2:30 p.m., Kaepernick, upset with the lack of media viewing allowed for the workout, moved the event an hour away from the original location and slated it for a 4 p.m. start. The new location also included a live stream of his workout.
Despite all those changes, some teams still made it to the workout session and one of the few confirmed teams there was the Jets.
According to The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue, Kaepernick was overheard thanking a group of those team representatives and scouts for attending and told them to bring a message back to their respective teams for him.
"When you go back, tell your owners to stop being scared," Kaepernick said.
Along with the Jets, team reps from the Chiefs and Redskins were also nearby when the quarterback sent that request. As for the rest of the eight teams in attendance, the Eagles, Titans, 49ers, Lions, and one mystery team made it.
Kaepernick followed up the event with a formal interview with a slew of reporters and added he's good to go.
"I've been ready. I'm staying ready. And I'll continue to be ready...The ball's in their court. We're ready to go," he said.
ESPN's Adam Schefter also said he spoke to an NFL executive at the workout and that team rep called Kaepernick's arm "elite."
