Colin Kaepernick is having a workout Saturday in conjunction with the NFL.
With Cam Newton on injured reserve, the Panthers are rolling with Kyle Allen and Will Grier, before they make a longer-term decision on Newton.
Panthers safety Eric Reid talked to owner David Tepper about his former 49ers teammate and friend when Newton went on IR last week.
“He said if they were looking to add a veteran quarterback that [Kaepernick) would be evaluated,” Reid said. “And I told him I’d hold him to that.”
Apparently, they aren’t looking to add a veteran quarterback—or were never interested in Kaepernick to begin with.
