A week after Colin Kaepernick staged a public workout and accused the NFL and its 32 owners of blackballing him due to his outspokenness on social justice issues, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on SportsCenter Sunday that not a single team has expressed interest in picking up the QB.

"How much interest has Kap received since the workout?" Schefter was asked. He replied,

"Zero. Absolutely zero. The workout last week did absolutely nothing to enhance the chances that Colin Kaepernick is going to wind up with another team. There hasn't been a team that has requested a workout. There hasn't been a team that has requested a visit. There hasn't been a team that has expressed interest in signing him. So, despite the fact that one week ago we saw Colin Kaepernick work out at the high school down in the Atlanta area, it has not translated into any results, and though the league wanted to try to help out, at least said it was trying to help out, nothing's come of it. Colin Kaepernick's wait continues and it looks like it's going to be continuing for a very, very, very long time."

After his public workout last week, Kaepernick said,

"I've been ready for three years; I've been denied for three years. We all know why — I came out here and I showed it today in front of everybody. We have nothing to hide. So we're waiting for the 32 owners, 32 teams, Roger Goodell, all of them to stop running. Stop running from the truth. Stop running from the people."
