Colin Kaepernick, Eric Reid Working Out

Former 49ers teammates Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid are training together as they look to get back into the NFL, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group writes. The duo was spotted working out at Cal State East Bay, but declined to offer specifics on their plans. 

We’re not doing interviews,” Kaepernick said. “We’re just here getting in a workout.”

From a talent perspective, both players should be rostered by NFL teams. However, their participation in anthem protests has apparently kept them from finding employment. Kaepernick, of course, sat out the entire 2017 season without drawing a concrete offer. Reid, meanwhile, has garnered very little interest this offseason outside of a meeting with the Bengals. The Bengals asked Reid about his plans regarding the anthem in 2018 and did not offer him a deal, prompting him to follow Kaepernick in his collusion grievance against the league. This week, the NFLPA backed the safety in his case.

Reid, 26, has made 69 starts in his career. The 49ers experimented with using him at linebacker at times, but the bulk of his work has come at safety since being taken in the first round of the 2013 draft.

      It’s too bad you say that because your favorite team would benefit from having a player like Reid on defense.

    Reid is a decent safety. Should be on a roster, not making big bucks though. Not sure what he is seeking financially. And Kaepernick, he isn’t good. There’s really no point in signing him. The back-up QB isn’t supposed to be the focal point of pressers or reporters questions during the week or after the game. He’s going to be a back-up if he is signed. Tim Tebow isn’t a 3rd string QB b/c of the media circus.

        I bet all the previous commentators above are white and “living the dream.”

          More like funding the dream for everyone else, but that’s ok. We all have our roles.

    i read an opinion today. the owners dont want the players expressing political opinions , but its ok for them to give their opinions by contributing to their favorite fund raising

    I get the kneeling but I don’t get complaining about it if you don’t get a job for it. I don’t watch football for their political view. I watch it because I love football. I don’t get to give my political view at my job, so why do they? They just have to do their job. Do what you want before and after you’re on the bosses dime.
