Transcript for Lawyer speaks out ahead of Colin Kaepernick workout
We get the latest on Colin Kaepernick. The NFL now says 11 teams committed to attending his workout as the quarterback tries to get back into the league. Kenneth Moton has the latest. Reporter: Good morning. All right, here we go. It all goes down tomorrow for Kaepernick and there is a lot on the line for him. This morning we are hearing from his high-profile attorney who says the NFL likely didn't expect Kaepernick would take the league up on its offer and they're calling the NFL's bluff. Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is busy preparing to work out for nearly a dozen NFL teams in Atlanta Saturday. But this morning, his high-powered attorney mark geragos is speaking out skeptical of the league. I would say the whole thing seems to me to be a manufactured stunt for lack of a better term. Reporter: Saturday Kaepernick tweeted about the workout saying I've been in shape and ready for this for three years. The NFL inviting all 32 teams to attend this Saturday's session. Confirming that 11 have signed up so far including the new England patriots. New York giants and the Miami dolphins. But because Saturdays are the day before game day or when scouts attend college football games it's unclear which representatives will attend. We don't know whether they're going to send head coach, water boy, cheerleader. We'll wait and see. Reporter: His former teammate Eric Reid unsure of the NFL's intentions calling it a pr stunt. It feels disingenuous and told him that he has the opportunity and that the league will send representatives from these teams but it's the Saturday before a game. Reporter: The league writing in a statement we are looking forward to Saturday's workout with Dr. Olin. He led his team to a super bowl six years ago but created a firestorm in 2016 taking a knee during the police anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality. That action dividing the nation. The following year Kaepernick became a free agent. The quarterback filed a grievance against the NFL alleges collusion after no team would sign him. The two sides eventually settling to undisclosed terms but now the athlete is determined to get back in the game this season. He wants to play. He's going to be there. He's going to show he should be on the field. Reporter: The NFL says even though about a dozen teams have committed, the league will send video of the workout and an interview with Kaepernick to all 32 teams. He focused on football but asked mark geragos if the NFL or a team picked him up, would Kaepernick kneel again during the national anthem in protest? Geragos said it's up to his client. Can I ask, what will the teams find out in a workout like this. What will they find out? For him being out of the game for three years if he's still in shape. If he can still throw the ball. If he's still mobile. All those things that he had when he was out of the league three years ago, going to see if he still has them. Three years since he's taken a snap. That's a long time. There's been guys out of the league that long and come back and grabbed them out of grocery stores who played after -- and we all know this guy can play football. He took the 49 remembers -- I didn't mean to wade into your territory. You keep it up, you might be playing for somebody. Go out and try out with him Saturday and you'll get a job.
