Transcript for Representatives from 24 teams expected to appear at Colin Kaepernick’s workout in Atlanta
field at the browns/steelers game. Cleveland's Myles Garrett suspended indefinitely for hitting Pittsburgh's quarterback mason Rudolph with his own helmet. You see it there. The two other players also suspended and both teams, both of them, fined $250,000. Rudolph wasn't seriously hurt and has not pressed charges. The browns and the steelers are set to play one another again in just two weeks. Well, we are just hours away from Colin Kaepernick's attempt at an NFL comeback. The once star quarterback's career derailed when he started taking a knee during the national anthem. ABC's Kaylee Hartung is in Georgia where more than two dozen teams are reportedly attending his workout. Reporter: This morning, Colin Kaepernick is preparing for the workout that could turn around his career. The controversial quarterback arriving in Atlanta earlier this week. TMZ capturing this photo. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, representatives from more than two dozen NFL teams are expected to attend this unprecedented event at the falcons training facility. A combinstyle workout for one man who's already led a team to a super bowl. It will be mostly be area scouts but more than 24 NFL teams and I think that's a turnout that has to please everybody involved. Reporter: Given only five days' notice from the NFL with no room to negotiate, the 32-year-old says, I've been in shape and ready for this for three years. The NFL being scrutinized for scheduling the workout on short notice and on a Saturday, a day scouts are usually attending college games and coaches are traveling for their weekly games. The whole thing seems to me to be a manufactured stunt. We don't know whether they're going to send head coach, waterboy, cheerleader. We'll wait and see. Reporter: His lawyer telling ABC news they're calling the league's bluff. He wants to play. He's going to be there. He he's going to show he should be on the field. Reporter: Kaepernick divided the nation in 2016 taking a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality. His actions sparked more interests and condemnation of president trump. When he became a free agent the following season, no team would sign him. He filed a grievance against the NFL alleging collusion to keep him out of the league. The two sides eventually settling to undisclosed terms. Nike made him the face of a new powerful ad campaign but he hasn't seen the football field since. If he has any hope and chance of returning to the NFL, that time is growing really short. Reporter: The league is asked a former NFL head coach hue Jackson to lead today's drills, testing the quarterback's arm strength, his conditioning and his mental discipline after being out of the game for nearly three years. While we expect most teams to send a representative here to the falcons training facility today, the NFL says it will send video of the workout and an interview with Kaepernick to all 32 teams.
