Chiefs will have scout in attendance for Colin Kaepernick's workout

It's an unusual move for the league to host something like this for a single player, especially one as controversial as Kaepernick, CBS News correspondent Kenneth Craig reports.

Colin's team is now saying that if the guy's still up for it, they'd like to keep the invite open for former Browns coach Hue Jackson to oversee the drills and workout Colin will now go through at the Atlanta-area school.

On Saturday in Atlanta, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will be center stage for the first time in nearly three years as he attempts to make a long-awaited return to the NFL. Kaepernick's representatives announced that the workout would no longer happen at 3 p.m.at the Falcons facility, but would rather happen an hour later, at 4 p.m., at an undisclosed location.

'Jeopardy' Host Fights Back Tears Following Contestant's Final Tribute
Alex Trebek fought back tears after a contestant used his Final Jeopardy answer to deliver a sweet message to the host. The heartwarming minute took off on social media, as the hashtag "WeLoveYouAlex" begun to pattern on Twitter .

Kaepernick said he did so to protest police shootings of African American men and other social injustices faced by black people in the United States. But it was made clear all 32 teams would get tape from the workout and interview, so the Bengals might choose to simply lean on that, barring a change in the coming days.

The lack of notice appears also to have given the teams little time to arrange for their representatives to attend Kaepernick's workout.

The former 49er was considered one of the leagues top QBs while on the team, and according to many evaluators, he's still more talented than most now unsigned QBs.

Ban and fine for Man City's Silva over Mendy tweet
Mendy did not take offence, replying with laughing emojis, but others quickly pointed out the racial aspect of Silva's remarks. Anti-discrimination campaign Kick It Out commented following the Portuguese midfielder's post.

Dozens of media had been set up in a fenced-off parking next to the Falcons' facility. Kaepernick's representatives then asked if it could be a later Saturday.

Kaepernick, who claimed the NFL and its teams colluded to keep him from playing following his refusal to stand during the National Anthem, tweeted Tuesday he's ready. He's a big mobile quarterback, but, he's been out of the league for three years and wasn't exactly the most accurate quarterback. The Cowboys and Panthers have said publicly they will not send reps to the workout. We'll see if it's a real process. We now have no idea who Kaepernick will be working out for, and to what end.
