The NFL has arranged a private workout for ex-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick on Saturday that all 32 teams are invited to attend.

The workout in Atlanta will include on-field work and an interview.

The NFL said  that several teams have asked about Kaepernick’s readiness to play, with the player keen to return.

“I’ve been in shape and ready for this for three years, can’t wait to see the head coaches and GMs (general managers) on Saturday,” he said.

The league has discussed possible steps with Kaepernick’s camp and decided on a workout run by scouting combine personnel and former NFL coaches.

Video of both the on-field work and interview will be made available to all 32 teams, although any teams present can hold their own interviews with Kaepernick, who led the 49ers to Super Bowl 47.

In October 2017, Kaepernick filed a grievance against NFL team owners he believed were conspiring not to hire him.

The grievance was resolved in February although specific terms of the settlement, including finances, were not released.
