The Tennessee Titans are not one of the 11 teams that have confirmed their attendance for the Colin Kapernick workout.
NFL free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick will have a workout on Saturday at 3 p.m. EST and several NFL teams plan to attend, but as of right now the Tennessee Titans are not one of them.
The NFL Communication department tweeted out a list of 11 teams that are expected to attend, and left the door open for more to join those teams as the day of Kapernick’s workout draws closer.
The tweet reads:
"“We are looking forward to Saturday’s workout with Colin. Eleven teams – Arizona, Atlanta, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Miami, New England, New York Giants, New York Jets, Tampa Bay, and Washington – have already committed to attend, and it’s only Thursday. With two days remaining until the workout, we expect additional teams to commit. Former NFL head coach Hue Jackson will lead the drills, and former NFL head coach Joe Philbin will be in attendance as well. We will send video of the workout and interview all 32 teams, including head coaches and general manager.”"
So it appears even if the Titans don’t attend the workout, they will be able to see it on video. Of course, Tennessee could decide to send a representative in the next few days and see Kaepernick work out in person.
USA Today’s Nate Davis ranked the Titans as the sixth-best fit for Kaepernick, as Tennessee does not have a quarterback signed for the 2020 season. Both starter Ryan Tannehill and backup Marcus Mariota will be free agents after this season.
Of course, if the Titans don’t send a representative, chances are there’s no interest there. Just because they might have a need at quarterback after this season doesn’t mean Kaepernick will be the answer for the Titans.
Recently, Titans tight end Delanie Walker said he was “surprised” that Kaepernick wasn’t in the league.
Kaepernick has not played in the league in three years since he opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers following the 2016 season. During that season, Kaepernick became a lightning rod for controversy after he decided to kneel for the National Anthem in protest of police brutality and social injustice.
