Eric Reid — one of Colin’s good friends — is reportedly on hand as well to show support. It also doesn’t look like Hue Jackson is gonna show to run Kap through drills — he’s reportedly headed back to the airport after flying in earlier Saturday.

12:11 PM PT — Colin’s team is now saying that if the guy’s still up for it, they’d like to keep the invite open for former Browns coach Hue Jackson to oversee the drills and workout Colin will now go through at the Atlanta-area school. Jackson was originally scheduled to lead Kap through QB drills at the Falcon facility — time will tell if he’ll show to the new location.

More drama!

Colin Kaepernick will NOT have his NFL workout at the Atlanta Falcons facility at 12 PM PT as planned … but it will go down at a separate location.

According to Colin’s reps, the NFL refused to allow media to observe the workout, which didn’t jive with Kap.

Also, Kap’s team claims the NFL wanted him to sign an “unusual liability waiver” which “rejected the standard liability waiver from physical injury proposed by Mr. Kaepernick’s representatives.”

“Based on prior conduct by the NFL league office, Mr. Kaepernick simply asks for a transparent and open process.”

As a result, Kaepernick is moving the workout to a nearby high school and it will be open to the media.

“Mr. Kaepernick looks forward to seeing the representatives from the clubs today.”

We’re told Kap has a team of WRs to work with and plans on going through with the workout at 1 PM PT.

A bunch of protesters and supporters alike had gathered outside the Falcons facility to both cheer and speak out against Kap. Guessing they’ll be moving to the new location as well.

Stay tuned …
