The unusual showcase was first reported by ESPN , who noted that Kaepernick requested that the workout take place on a Tuesday, the normal day when NFL free-agent showcases take place. The league, though, said Saturday would be the day. The workout will be run by former NFL coaches at the Atlanta Falcons’ practice facility in Flowery Branch, Ga. No media will be permitted to attend.
The workout will consist of drills and a video interview with Kaepernick.

Naturally, the signing was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who noted that the contract was worth $2 million, fully guaranteed, but can be worth up to $5.4 million with incentives. It’s worth noting that the Eagles have had to deploy their backup quarterback twice in the last two years, both times with spectacular results. But Nick Foles’s success led to a massive free agent contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Expected Eagles backup Nate Sudfeld broke his wrist in a preseason game, and third stringer Cody Kessler
