Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is set to hold an exhibition on Saturday (April 2) for league personnel.
According to a report by ESPN Insider Field Yates, Kaepernick will hold the exhibition throwing event alongside other draft-eligible players during halftime of University of Michigan's spring game. The news came Friday afternoon (April 1) after reports indicated the former San Franciso 49ers QB was still working out and "in the best shape of his life."
Kaepernick hasn't played in the national league since the 2017 season following his public stance against police brutality and racial injustice.
"News: Free agent QB Colin Kaepernick will hold an exhibition throwing event with some draft-eligible players during halftime of Michigan’s spring game tomorrow. NFL club personnel in attendance are permitted to watch the event," a tweet from Yates reads.
Michigan was one of the first college programs to open up their spring practice games, giving fans and NFL staffers a chance to see how the Wolverines are replacing star senior and Heisman finalist Aidan Hutchinson, who is headed to the NFL Draft.
Last month, Kaepernick revealed that he was still ready to make a comeback to the game, after a five-year absence. In that time, the 34-year-old has published books, led a Nike campaign, and helped create a Netflix special about his childhood.
