Jerry Jones denies rumor Cowboys will attend Colin Kaepernick workout
The Dallas Cowboys were believed to be among the handful of NFL teams that will be sending representatives to Colin Kaepernick’s workout this weekend. According to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, that is not the case.
“We’re not gonna have anybody there. We’ll look at the tape if we need any information there. We really like where we are with our quarterbacks,” Jones said on the K&C Masterpiece on 105.3 The Fan.
The most recent count of teams with intentions to be present at Kaepernick’s league-organized showcase on Saturday in Atlanta, Ga., was at 11. Former Browns head coach Hue Jackson is expected to lead drills.

Among those 11 reported teams that plan to intend the workout will include the Cardinals, Falcons, Browns, Broncos, Lions, Dolphins, Patriots, Giants, Jets, Buccaneers and Redskins, all of which have confirmed their commitment, per an NFL announcement Thursday via The Washington Post.
While the Cowboys never officially confirmed any plans to attend Kaepernick’s workout, sources are said to have indicated as much, according to Mike Fisher of Sports Illustrated.

It’s entirely possible that Jones simply changed his mind about sending a Cowboys representative to Kaepernick’s workout. With that said, then, it’s also entirely conceivable that the Cowboys could change course again before Saturday.
