Roger Goodell says NFL has ‘moved on’ from Colin Kaepernick

The NFL-arranged workout last month for free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick — out of the NFL since 2016 and recipient of a settlement from the league for his collusion grievance — turned into a bust when a distrustful Kaepernick changed the site on an hour’s notice in order to allow media to film it.

The number of teams scouting went from 25 expected to eight after the change.

“I haven’t thought about this in a few weeks,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. “This was about creating an opportunity, which Colin’s representatives came out with in late October. We created that opportunity. It was a unique opportunity, a credible opportunity. And he chose not to take it. I understand that. And we’ve moved on.”

There has been no reported NFL interest on Kaepernick in the weeks since the workout.
