It seems that former San Francisco 49er Colin Kaepernick’s workout about a month ago didn’t go as planned. The National Football League (NFL) now says it is moving on.

Kaepernick — a former NFL player who sparked controversy for kneeling during the national anthem in protest of racial inequality — was invited by the NFL to a special workout in November in Atlanta, Ga.

Though the workout was planned to be at the Atlanta Falcons training facility, the former 49er switched things up and his representatives changed the location to a local high school stadium, as IJR previously reported.

The change of location drew criticism from the league, as they said they were “disappointed that Colin did not appear for his workout.” However, a number of representatives from different NFL teams still attended.

However, now, the league’s commissioner, Roger Goodell, is sharing how the NFL has “moved on” from the workout.

Goodell noted on Wednesday, according to Reuters, that the special workout was “about creating an opportunity”: “We created that opportunity. It was a unique opportunity, a credible opportunity and he chose not to take it. I understand that.”

“We’ve moved on,” Goodell added.

Looks like Colin just had his ego shoved up his colon.
There goes his career and millions of dollars to follow.
Soon, Nike will wake up and dump this guy before he costs the company millions in lost sales.
