Colin Kaepernick's agent hits out at Warren Sapp over 'untrue' claims
by | VIEW 425
Colin Kaepernick's agent Jeff Nalley says Warren Sapp's claims about Kaepernick's workout with the Las Vegas Raiders were just not true. Kaepernick worked out for the Raiders in late May but he remains unsigned. Last week, Sapp said Kaepernick's workout with the Raiders was "disaster" and one of the "worst workouts ever." Sapp's comments have gone viral since and it prompted a reaction from Kaepernick's agent.
“I guess Warren didn’t talk to the General Manager or the head coach,” Nalley told PFT via text message. “I spoke to the GM [Dave Zieger] several times and he said they all thought Kap was in great shape and threw the ball really well and encouraged any team to call him about the workout and he would tell them the same.
I’m surprised Warren would say that, because it’s not true and you would think he would want Kap on a team”.
Kaepernick's agent denies Sapp's claims
“I heard it was a disaster,” Sapp said on Vlad TV.
“I heard one of the worst workouts ever. I’m wondering how the hell this happened and the tape didn’t get out, right? I mean, somebody wasn’t over the fence or nothing? Come on, man." Kaepernick's agent claims his client's workout with the Raiders went well but the Raiders refused to provide too much details about the workout.
When Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels was asked about Kaepernick's workout, he tried to downplay it by saying it is normal for an NFL team to bring in a free agent for a workout. "Just a standard procedure, we will only talk about the people who are on our team," McDaniels said.
"[General manager Dave Ziegler] and his staff have worked out tons of guys this spring and we really don't make comments about the evaluations that we made or what they looked like, what they didn't look like, strengths and weaknesses, those kinds of things are kind of private obviously for us as we look at things to try to make decisions to make the team better.
If players are added to the team then obviously we'll talk about them at that point. I respect the question 100 percent. I understand. But's kind of what we'll stick to." Kaepernick has been out of the NFL since 2016 but he still hasn't given up on his hope of returning to the NFL even though he is 34.
