Raiders Notes: Kaepernick Workout Went Well, More Workplace Allegations

Raiders notes: It’s been interesting the last couple of days in regard to the Silver and Black. A story relating to the Colin Kaepernick workout held by the Las Vegas Raiders has been refuted. Meanwhile, more troubling news regarding workplace allegations and the Raiders’ front office.

Colin Kaepernick threw the ball well, says his agent.

As most NFL fans know, the mere mention of Kaepernick’s name incites a reaction. Regardless of which end of the spectrum you reside on, Kap once led his team to a Super Bowl appearance. However, that now feels like ages ago and it’s been years since he played a down of NFL football. Nevertheless, the Raiders held a workout for him, with no strings attached, just a chance to see what he had left.

Politics aside, there were several conflicting reports that came from that workout, and little was said by the Raiders’ brass. That didn’t stop former Raiders defensive tackle Warren Sapp from sharing some insight. He stated that the workout was a disaster. In an interesting turn of events, Kaepernick’s agent denied that statement over the weekend. Pro Football Talk was the first to report it as they received a direct response from Kaepernick’s agent via text.

“I guess Warren didn’t talk to the General Manager or the head coach. I spoke to the G.M. [Dave Zieger] several times and he said they all thought Kap was in great shape and threw the ball really well and encouraged any team to call him about the workout and he would tell them the same. I’m surprised Warren would say that because it’s not true and you would think he would want Kap on a team.”

As of now, no official word has been given on any sort of future between Kaepernick and the Raiders. In all likelihood, the Raiders are set at quarterback.

Raiders notes: Mark Davis declines to comment at this time.

While the on-field product for the Raiders is currently thriving, the front office is a different story. By front office, we’re referring to the sudden ousting of Dan Ventrelle as CEO. Over the weekend, the Las Vegas Review-Journal expanded on a New York Times story that rocked the NFL world. According to former employee, Nicole Adams, the Raiders’ workplace was one of discrimination and sexual harassment, allegedly.

Both Adams and other anonymous former employees have claimed that the front office is a “boys club and the mob wrapped in one.” As of right now, this is an ongoing story, but more importantly, owner Mark Davis has yet to make any statement on it. Most recently, Davis said, “Eventually, I will have something to say about all of this, but not right now.” It’ll be worth keeping an eye on to see if the NFL steps in at some point, perhaps an investigation of its own.

The craziest thing to me about kaeperdick is he just made some ridiculous show that compared the NFL combine to a slave auction in a very graphic way…thats frickin offensive….so he’s a completely ludicrous person…I saw him play against unlv and he had a great game…but like most running QBs it gets figured out pretty quickly unless he can consistently throw the ball well ….I believe sapp…RAIDERS only tried him out to build no cancelling credit with lunatic lefty’s…same thing they did when they gave the criminal communist at BLM a million dollars a week after George floyd o.d. on… Read more »
