So, it should come as no surprise that the team is planning to send a representative to free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick's workout, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson.

Former NFL head coach Hue Jackson will lead the drills, with assistantence from fellow former NFL coach Joe Philbin. Kaepernick was, of course, the one who begun the movement of professional athletes kneeling for the national anthem to raise awareness of police brutality and racial inequalities in America - a movement that has since inspired numerous athletes to follow suit.

Freeman also reports that the NFL's decision to host a workout left both Kaepernick and many teams around the league shocked. "Eleven teams - Arizona, Atlanta, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Miami, New England, New York Giants, New York Jets, Tampa Bay, Washington - have already committed to attend, and it's only Thursday", the league said in a statement.

Asked on Wednesday if the Raiders would be attending Kaepernick's event on Saturday, Jon Gruden said he didn't know and reiterated that he is focused on the Bengals right now.

"We have ... arranged this opportunity for him to work out, and for all clubs to have the opportunity to evaluate his current readiness and level of interest in resuming his NFL career", the league said in a memo, according to ESPN.
