Hall of Famer claims ex-49er Colin Kaepernick completed “disaster” training

Colin Kaepernick had a chance to show what he left behind in arms, legs and other football intangible assets almost two months ago.

For the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who once led the franchise to the NFC title in 2013, he got a chance to show the Las Vegas Raiders what’s still in his shell after being out of the league since 2016 Black represents the last NFL team to reward him with a tryout.

There was the report by ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler that Kaepernick’s arm strength and conditioning were two elements that stood out from his training. Raiders franchise quarterback Derek Carr was also on board and said Kaepernick would fit well into the Raiders’ setup.

However, an NFL Hall of Famer who once competed for the Raiders was told otherwise.

The NFL Hall of Fame defensive tackle — who established himself with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Raiders as one of the league’s most dominant pass rushers and became one of the most talkative figures in the NFL — claimed he had some information on how “Kap” trains really went.

“I heard it was a disaster,” Sapp said on Vlad TV. “I heard one of the worst workouts ever.”

Sapp continued the criticism, asking why the former 49er’s film didn’t make it to the public.

“I wonder how the hell that happened and the tape didn’t come out, right? I mean someone wasn’t over the fence or something? Come on man,” Sapp said. “We live in a world right now where you can put a drone and they won’t stop you. You’re not going to stop training tomorrow and say, “There’s a drone up here, we don’t know who that is.” I mean what? Come on, let’s do this.”

Sapp was also asked if he thinks Kaepernick will get another chance to field for an NFL team. The man, who has amassed 96.5 career sacks, including three in career games against the 49ers, shook his head in response with an emphatic “no.”

It is not known who gave this insight to Sapp, given that a small number of Raiders were present on the day of Kaepernick’s training session. General manager Dave Ziegler and head coach Josh McDaniels were among the more prominent Raider names to watch the former 49er throw and run.

Sapp played four seasons for the Raiders while they were in Oakland and was considered a respected veteran and likeable teammate. However, Sapp never worked with both Ziegler and McDaniels in his 13-year career. Perhaps a former Raider Sapp is linked to him who may have seen the practice, who gave the Hall of Famer some nuggets.

Sapp isn’t the only one who has nothing positive to say about Kaepernick.

Even a 49ers cornerback, who is currently an unsigned free agent, questioned Kaepernick’s desire to play in the league.

Josh Norman also sat down with Vlad TV and used this statement in reference to Kaepernick: You can’t sue a company and then go back and try to work for them again. This comes as Kaepernick won a collusion case against the league in 2019.

Despite the training, Kaepernick remains unsigned. However, NFL insider Josina Anderson of CBS Sports HQ reported on June 10 that Kaepernick’s possible future as a raider “isn’t necessarily off the table.”
