3:39 PT – As Colin's training begins, we've learned some interesting information about why the location changed in the first place – which completely contradicts Colin's claim. that the NFL will not allow the media to practice falconry.
An NFL source tells TMZ Sports that despite what Colin and his camp broadcast on Saturday with a last-minute change to what was described as transparency goals, they tell us that Colin himself was interested in media accessibility. when these conversations first began.
We are told that the implication behind Colin's question was that he did not want the media there, as a source tells us that he wanted to avoid a circus-like atmosphere. In other words, we are told that the league is completely puzzled by the reasoning of Cap and his location change team.
Our source tells us it is not so … Cap could have made the media join the Falcons practice if he wanted to, but we are told that he never made that request for a start.
13:24 PT – Colin has just arrived at his new training ground in Atlanta, a high school that has been reported an hour from practicing falconry. He rolls into a minibus with a small entourage sprinter from the people who accompany him.
Eric Reed – one of Colin's good friends – is reported to show support. It also doesn't look like Hugh Jackson will show up to manage Kap through training – he reportedly headed back to the airport after flying earlier on Saturday.
12:11 PM PT – Colin's team says now that if a person is still ready for this, they would like to keep the invitation open to former Browns coach Hugh Jackson to watch the training and training that Colin will now go to school in the Atlanta area. Jackson originally planned to take Cap through QB training at the Falcon facility – time will tell if he will show up at the new location.
Colin Kaepernick DO NOT conduct his NFL drills at the Atlanta Falcons at 12:00 PM PT as scheduled … but he will go down to a separate location.
According to Colin representatives, the NFL refused to allow the media to watch the workout, which did not
The Kap team also said that the NFL wanted him to sign an "unusual disclaimer" that "rejects a standard waiver. liability for physical harm suggested by Mr. Kaepernick's representatives. "
" Based on prior conduct by the NFL League office, Mr. Kaepernick simply wants a transparent and open process. "
As a result, Kaepernick is moving the training to a nearby high school and will be open to the media.

that Kap has a team of WRs to work with and plans to continue training at 1:00 PM PT.
Many protesters and supporters had gathered outside the Falcons. facility to cheer and speak out against Cap. I suppose they too will move to the new place.
