Giants legend Lawrence Taylor extends his support to Colin Kaepernick

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will hold a Pro Day-style workout in front of at least 24 NFL teams on Saturday in Atlanta as he looks to get his career back on track after three years away from the game.

Kaepernick, who opted out of his contract following the 2016 season and has turned down opportunities with multiple teams since, recently settled a lawsuit with the NFL after alleging that he had been blackballed from the league over his decision to kneel during the national anthem due to what he perceived to be injustices across the country.

The decision to kneel sparked a national outcry and forced NFL owners to address the situation, very nearly leading the league to make a broad policy — something that did not happen in the end.

Saturday’s workout will be the first time Kaepernick has the attention of NFL scouts in years, and he’s seeing a wave of support from across the league, including a shout-out from one of the greatest players to ever put on a uniform — New York Giants legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer, Lawrence Taylor.

Taylor, who is no stranger to controversy himself, has not addressed the Kaepernick situation publicly, but clearly stands with the polarizing figure ahead of the biggest day of his career.

The Giants will be among the team’s in attendance to watch Kaepernick’s workout, although it’s unlikely they seriously consider signing him this season or next.
