"I'll believe it when I see it", said Reid, the Carolina Panthers safety and a former teammate of Kaepernick's who joined in the kneeling protest and paid a hefty price himself.

Regardless, the Bears should do their due diligence and send someone to Kaepernick's workout Saturday in case he's a very real option for the Bears in 2020.

There's scant evidence - Muhammad Ali comes immediately to mind - of an athlete resuming his career after such a long layoff.

National Football League workouts typically take place on Tuesdays, when teams often have off days and head coaches and general managers have a better opportunity to attend.

According to ESPN, Kaepernick's camp asked the league to push the workout back to a Tuesday, which would be more convenient for any interested teams, or to a later Saturday, but the league rejected the request.

Kaepernick became a polarizing figure during the 2016 season after he began protesting police brutality and racial injustice by taking a knee on the sideline during the pregame playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner".

"Oh hell no, He doesn't deserve to step foot on the field ever with any team, especially the Cowboys, been a fan all my life this may do it for me, I don't know what they're thinking it's not our quarterback it's the head coach, that is my opinion". The Pittsburgh Steelers are in the AFC playoff mix even after losing Ben Roethlisberger to a season-ending injury.

The Dolphins' top two quarterbacks are 36-year-old Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen, who was proclaimed the starter by Flores only to be benched after two quarters because he was so bad against Washington. Coach Bill Callahan originally cited that they already have three quarterbacks and are not looking for more, but John Keim of ESPN reported that the Redskins will be in attendance to watch Kaepernick.

In a new "First Take" broadcast, Smith explained how JAY's controversial decision to team up with the NFL last summer could easily be the reason the league is giving Kaep another chance. The workout will be recorded and shared with all 32 teams. We'll have to wait and see.
