Stephen A. Smith, confirmed
Jay Z had a lot to do with
Colin Kaepernick getting his tryout with the NFL. Folks threw a lot of shade at Hov, and heavily criticized him for partnering with the football franchise. I wonder what they have to say now?  It's clear that the rap icon was working it out behind the scenes. Speaking of which, Stephen A gave up some tea on what he turned-up while doing a little background research himself. He said he found out "At least 10 to 22 teams are scheduled to show up" at Kaepernick's upcoming workout this Saturday in Atlanta.

The famous ESPN analyst told viewers Colin's workout was a legit look. He went on to say the only way he couldn't get a job with the NFL, is if he says something incredibly stupid and plays horribly. Steven A. said if you heard that Kaepernick was in top shape and works out everyday for hours on end...it's true! Though he wouldn't say where, Smith revealed he's seem Colin practice and promised he was is in magnificent shape and ready to go.

Yet, some are a little uneasy about Saturday's workout. ESPN's Domonique Foxworth, feels some type of way about the announcement being last minute. He and others don't like the fact that Kaeps workout is private and it's a league organized event, and not something set-up by the teams. Foxworth explained this scenario almost never happens, that if the NFL always scouts a player at the league combine. The sports host added that teams and the athletes their interested in, are given a few months to prepare before the workout. In this case Kaep hads four days to get ready.

Stephen A. didn't express any concern about whether the former 49ers star would be able to secure himself a new future in the NFL. He says the man is in A-1 condition! As far as giving credit to the architect behind Kaeps golden opportunity, the First Take host said only one name comes to mind...

At the end of the day, if your ready...you don't have to get ready. I believe Colin is going to show-up and show-out this weekend. We are pulling for you man!
