Colin Kaepernick inks $1 million book deal

CINCINNATI — The Bengals have not committed to attend Colin Kaepernick's workout Saturday in Atlanta, but they could still go, according to an NFL release Thursday.

The league said 11 NFL teams have committed and "we expect additional teams to commit."

Head coach Zac Taylor would not say Wednesday if the Bengals would send a representative.

The league listed Arizona, Atlanta, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Miami, New England, NY Giants, NY Jets, Tampa Bay and Washington as committed.

Kaepernick, a free-agent quarterback 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, saying: "I've been in shape and ready for this for 3 years, can't wait to see the head coaches and GMs on Saturday."

However, it is doubtful that general managers and head coaches will be present at the Falcons' practice facility because many will be preparing or traveling for Sunday or Monday games. Most teams are expected to send directors of player personnel and scouts.

Hue Jackson, former Bengals assistant and former Browns head coach, will lead the drills. The NFL said it would send video of Kaepernick's workout and interview to all 32 teams.
