Wide Receiver At Kaepernick Workout Gets Offer For Tryout With Cleveland Browns

A wide receiver who worked out with Colin Kaepernick at the QB's workout got a shot at the NFL but not Kap.

Cleveland, OH – While controversial former National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick hasn’t received a tryout after he put on a Nov. 16 workout in front of scouts, one of the receivers who worked with him that day has received an invitation.

Jordan Veasy was one of the wide receivers that Kaepernick threw to during his own workout, according to Black Entertainment Television.

Veasy was invited to do a tryout for the Cleveland Browns, according to longtime NFL reporter Howard Balzer who posted it on his Twitter account.

Veasy hasn’t appeared in an NFL game, but he played two years at the University of California. In 2016, he caught 25 passes for 306 yards and his senior year in 2017, he caught 38 passes for 491 yards.

Kaepernick stayed busy with his activism while waiting a call from the NFL.

On Thanksgiving, Kaepernick spoke at the “indigenous People’s Sunrise Ceremony” which is also referred to as “Unthanksgiving” in San Francisco at Alcatraz Island, according to Fox News. Native Americans have occupied the former federal prison for 50 years.

"Spent the morning at the Indigenous People’s Sunrise Ceremony on the 50 year anniversary of the Occupation of Alcatraz," Kaepernick tweeted on Thanksgiving day, according to Fox News. "The US government has stolen over 1.5 billion acres of land from indigenous people. Thank you to my indigenous family, I’m with you today and always."

Kaepernick also retweeted a Washington Post article by writer Christoper Petrella that said that Thanksgiving had racist implications.

"Antebellum campaigns to establish Thanksgiving as nat’l holiday grew up alongside colonizationist efforts to remove free Black people from U.S. Nationalization advocates mobilized white fears of Black equality to build support for holiday," Petrella said in the post retweeted by Kaepernick, according to Fox News.

Kaepnerick started the anti-police protests in 2016 when he took a knee during an exhibition game during the National Anthem.

The former football player even sported socks depicting police officers as pigs along with his Nike shoes on playing field.

He had a 3-16 record as a starting quarterback in his final two years with the San Francisco 49ers.

No NFL team has signed the former professional football player since he quit the 49ers after kneeling on the field for the National Anthem during the 2016-2017 season.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick said at the time.

Your article is very correct... “FORMER professional football player”. Lmao! Glad the scouts came and picked up a football player, the Browns can use a receiver.

What a rotten, filthy, scoundrel! I hope he NEVER gets anything again and Americans unite against him and everything he stands for! He doesn't deserve one ounce of media attention. TURN OFF THE BLOWER MEDIA and he may go away!!!!!!! He does not stand for anti-racism - he is the prime candidate to start racism! Personally, I don't see color, maybe he should try it! I see people and the way they act, regardless of color! I could care less what color you are, it's how you act and treat others!

It's to bad that he couldn't just stand during the anthem and be patriotic like everyone except for a couple of his team mates. All they had to do is they're jobs and play football, if they had a beef then wait and talk to the press afterwards. But noooo the dumbass had to kneel. Look he's not the only person on this planet that has a beef with cops but you made a name for yourself as a quarterback. With being a quarterback with some status you were able to talk to the press and get what was on your chest off talking. You have to admit though that some of the problems with colored kids and adults were their own fault as they press the envelope to far by not doing what the officer (s) asked of them to do. Running away from the officer (s) meant that you was guilty and they had to subdue you or detain them. If they had nothing wrong then don't run and don't listen to all the crap that has happened to your friends and family as they may have gone through the same crap with not listening and running away and not doing what the officer tells you. It's the same with any color of person(s), if they don't do what the cops tell them and run they are presume quelty until you've proven they're self innocent. I'm for all people of color as it make no difference to me.

I'm 1/8th Cherokee - which is 1/8th more Native American that Kaepernick. He can't get anything by being "black" so now the Indigenous people are "his people"? He is a total disgrace to the human race.

Funny their is a black caucus, black TV, black Miss America, black this , black that and they call us racist. This guy was going down hill in playing football and called it racist because he wasnt picked up again. Then all he can do is try to make this multi millionaire make my country bad. If he doesnt like it he should leave. Nothing like the news media keep putting this racist asshole front page

I am a Niner fan and this clown only started this crap after he lost his QB job to a WHITE back up QB. His racist gf from NY got in his head and off to the race war he went. He's a POS deserving of nothing. He was raised by a white family because his black mother couldn't afford to do it. He should be blaming her and his nowhere to be found father for his problems, not the people that saved his rear end.

From the story: "Native Americans have occupied the former federal prison for 50 years." It was the 50th anniversary of their occupation of the federal prison.

He’s a lousy quarterback...maybe that’s why he hasn’t been offered a tryout. He’s a non-entity. Please stop writing articles about him. You’re only promoting him when you do.

Has he given his house and land back to the indigenous people?

The happiest people are the ones who are appreciative and the most miserable are the ungrateful ones looking back instead of forward.

He got a tryout because he wasn’t related to a known troublemaker such as Kunta Kinte who as we all know, eventually had to have half of one of his feet cut off to prevent him from running. So, I ask you Kunta, what good is trying to market a washed up quarterback who can’t run because he’s only got half a foot?

Tell me Kunta, have your people bought into your Sharpton lie of unequal treatment? Tell me Kunta, what was it like for you growing up under the umbrella of white privilege?

Tell me, when you were signing your multi-million dollar deals for sneakers and to play a game, who was whipping your back? Can you show us ignorant crackers the marks?

And please Kunta, tell us all, of all the black people killed by police, how many shot at officers first, were suicides by cops, were fugitives from the law and refused to be brought in rather than simply surrender? How many were killed by black officers?

Tell me also Kunta, why aren’t you lamenting over the youth of Chicago who are killing each other in black on black crime in numbers more disproportionate to the imaginary numbers you’re quoting for blacks being murdered by cops?

After all, their your biggest customer base for shoes and are killing your profit margins! Don’t their lives matter too Kunta?

Their lives don’t matter to you do they because it doesn’t support your agenda or the money grubbing you do to solicit yourself like a whore to the whites and the blacks that’ll pay money for the show just like Al Sharpton.
