Former NFL coaches Hue Jackson and Joe Philbin will be running the event on the field. Sources had also told ESPN that the Dallas Cowboys will go, but owner Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas that his team will not have a representative at the workout. Additionally, Mr. Kaepernick requested all media be allowed into the workout to observe and film it and for an independent film crew to be there to ensure transparency.
The league earlier had announced that 11 teams - Arizona, Atlanta, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Miami, New England, New York Giants, New York Jets, Tampa Bay, and Washington - confirmed they will attend in some capacity. In fact, a report on Thursday indicated that Kaepernick had nothing to do with the planning of Saturday's event and ESPN's Adam Schefter said he isn't even sure it's going to happen.
The NFL reportedly presented the Saturday workout to Kaepernick as a take-it-or-leave-it deal, fueling speculation that the 32-year-old could choose to pass on the league's offer. It had been scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. ET at the Atlanta Falcons' practice facility.
"From the outset, Mr. Kaepernick requested a legitimate process and from the outset the NFL league office has not provided one", his representatives said in a statement.

Indian court rules in favor of Hindus in explosive row with Muslims
The unanimous decision by five judges led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi disappointed some Muslims while Hindus rejoiced. He further said that no mosque can be built or namaz can be offered on any disputed land.
Of course, just because Kaepernick is finally earning the opportunity to show off his skills for teams doesn't necessarily mean he's guaranteed to sign with anyone, but at least it's better than nothing. His pregame protests over police brutality during the national anthem - at first by sitting and then kneeling - ignited a firestorm. If they really want to give him an open and fair shot, what difference would it make if people could watch the workout?
Update: The NFL has released a response to Kaepernick's decision.
He became a free agent after the 2016 season and remains unsigned. Reid now plays for the Carolina Panthers. During that season, in which the 49ers were 2-14, Kaepernick threw 16 touchdowns and had four interceptions.
Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against National Football League owners in October 2017 after going unsigned as a free agent.
