The Arizona Cardinals are reportedly among the teams scheduled to attend Colin Kaepernick’s workout for NFL teams in Atlanta on Saturday.
ESPN reported that the Cardinals would have a representative at the workout for the former NFL quarterback.
The Cardinals drafted Kyler Murray out of Oklahoma with the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL draft and he has impressed during his first 10 games in Arizona.
Arizona’s backup quarterback is Brett Hundley, who previously played for the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks.
Hundley is on a one-year deal in Arizona.
The Cardinals have former Minnesota Vikings and Denver Broncos QB Kyle Sloter on the practice squad.

USA TODAY Sports’ Nate Davis wrote that Kaepernick could be an intriguing backup option for Murray.
“Much was made of the diverse atmosphere fostered by late owner Bill Bidwill,” Davis wrote in a story ranking Kaepernick’s potential fit with each NFL team. “In that spirit, this seems like an organization that could absorb Kaepernick, who could thrive nicely in the ‘Air Raid’ system in the event Kyler Murray went down.”
For the Win compiled a list of teams reportedly attending Kaepernick’s workout and included the Cardinals.
It also had the Atlanta Falcons, Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Redskins on the list.
Kaepernick last played for an NFL team, the 49ers, on Jan. 1, 2017.
He drew attention when he kneeled during the national anthem as a form of protest for police brutality and injustice against minorities.
