The NFL announced Thursday 11 teams have committed to attend Colin Kaepernick’s private workout in Atlanta on Saturday and more teams are expected to also commit by Saturday.
The teams that have already committed are the Cardinals, Falcons, Browns, Broncos, Lions, Dolphins, Patriots, Giants, Jets, Buccaneers and Redskins. The league also announced former NFL head coach Hue Jackson will lead the drills and former head coach Joe Philbin will also be in attendance. There has been some questioning of the workout with the league but it is interesting that one-third of the league has already committed and more are expected. How much will come out of this is yet to be determined and nothing may happen until 2020 but it’s still an interesting development to watch unfold. We’ll see if any more teams commit before Saturday.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Colin Kaepernick will hold a private workout in Atlanta. The Saturday session will include on-field work and an interview. All clubs have been invited to attend the workout, and video of the workout and the interview will be made available to all teams.
Kaepernick has been unemployed since March of 2017 and is now 32. Schefter said the NFL arranged the workout and Kaepernick's agents have said he wants to return to the NFL.

The Houston Texans are lacking a starting-caliber quarterback after losing rookie sensation Deshaun Watson to a torn ACL. So on Tuesday, they brought in a free agent to bolster a quarterback room that is currently spearheaded by Tom Savage.
Down to two quarterbacks in training camp, the Ravens have agreed to terms with indoor league quarterback David Olson.
With starter Joe Flacco expected to miss a week with a back injury, the Ravens had been in search of another option under center. Olson worked out for the team Thursday and is expected to practice with the team today.
