On Saturday, Colin Kaepernick was in Atlanta to work out for what was reportedly supposed to be 25 NFL teams. Instead, Kaepernick changed the venue just hours before the workout, forcing most of those teams to say, “forget it.”
According to multiple reports, the Detroit Lions were one of the 7 teams who followed Kaepernick to his new workout destination.
Today’s NFL wire listed seven teams as having attended Colin Kaepernick’s workout on Saturday, per source.
The seven: Detroit, Kansas City, New York Jets, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Tennessee, Washington.

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press has pointed out that the Lions sent one of their top talent evaluators, director of pro scouting Rob Lohman, to watch Kaepernick work out.
That's Lions director of pro scouting Rob Lohman that's in that picture of the scouts watching Kaepernick's workout, so Lions sent one of their top evaluators to watch the QB https://t.co/0eImHBp1y6
