Three years without an NFL showing had little effect on Colin Kaepernick's workout as he displayed a glimpse of the skills in his arsenal at the Charles R Drew High School in Atlanta. Kaepernick has been out of the NFL for three whole years after the NFL owners allegedly froze him out of the league. However, after coming to a settlement with Colin Kaepernick, the tensions between the NFL and the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback took another turn after Kaepernick's workout last weekend. 

For starters, the NFL had organised a workout of sorts for Kaepernick at the Atlanta Falcon's Facility. However, Colin Kaepernick refused to show up at the venue on account of the enforced media blackout at the location. Kaepernick, therefore, changed the venue to the high school in Atlanta at the last minute, with the media also in attendance.

NFL news: Colin Kaepernick's contract a no-show

After a reported last-minute change of location, it seems that only eight out of the 25 teams' representatives showed up for Kaepernick's workout, according to his agent, Jeff Nalley. Nalley admitted that he had spoken to a number of the representatives and he hopes that Colin Kaepernick will get a contract with an NFL team very soon. He also admitted that he was rather pessimistic about Kaepernick's chances at the moment, considering that he had not heard from any of the NFL teams on a contract for Colin Kapernick so far.

NFL News: Colin Kaepernick's sharp words for NFL owners

Speaking after the workout, Colin Kaepernick said that he was ready for a return to the NFL and has been ready during the period of his three-year absence. The former 49ers quarterback had a strong showing during his workout and impressed the media and the NFL representatives during the same. Colin Kaepernick did, however, call out the "scared" NFL owners after his workout, asking the representatives to inform the owners to stop "running from the truth".

Whether Colin Kaepernick returns to the NFL after a three-year absence remains to be seen. His agent, Jeff Nalley said that since none of the teams asked for this workout, there were no takers on a team workout for Colin Kaepernick. He did, however, say that Colin Kaepernick is ready to workout at any of the NFL team's facility as is the normal process.
