Roger Goodell gives his take on Colin Kaepernick workout

Roger Goodell gives his take on Colin Kaepernick workout

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell hadn't talked publicly since Colin Kaepernick's failed workout last month.

In a Wednesday press conference, Goodell said that he understood Kaepernick's decision not to take part in the workout, adding that the objective of the workout was to give Kaepernick a "credible opportunity" to get back into the league. The decision was announced Wednesday, May 23, 2018, by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell during the league's spring meeting in Atlanta.

Colin Kaepernick might be a free agent, but he chose to complete a 40-minute workout.

"This was ... about creating an opportunity, which Colin's representatives came out in early October and we created that opportunity".

"It was a unique opportunity, a credible opportunity", Goodell said.

It's obviously been a point of contention in the weeks since after Kaepernick cancelled the NFL-mandated workout and set up shop at a nearby high school. "I understand that. And, you know, we've moved on".

It tells consumers how many minutes or miles of exercise they need to do to burn off the calories in a particular product. It has been emphasised often again that one should read the food labels properly before purchasing the product.


A total of 25 teams were supposed to attend the league's workout run by two former head coaches at the Atlanta Falcons' practice facility on November 16. He did this in front of National Football League representatives who came from 8 different teams.

According to ESPN, Kaepernick has still yet to receive any interest following the event.

The protests drew the ire of U.S. President Donald Trump and Kaepernick said teams would not sign him because of his activism. Stop running from the truth.

Goodell may or may not be running, but it's clear after Wednesday's comments that he and the league are walking away. Kaepernick posted on social media that he was working out five days a week and ready to play again.

The league in February settled a collusion grievance filed by Kaepernick and Eric Reid.
