TAMPA — The Bucs will be among the teams sending a representative to a workout for former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick on Saturday in Atlanta.
As of late Thursday, 14 teams had committed to attend the workout, the website Pro Football Talk reported.
Jameis Winston is playing under the fifth-year option of his rookie contract and can be a free agent in 2020 unless the Bucs commit $25 million to $27 million to the quarterback as a franchise player.
Coach Bruce Arians was asked about the league’s decision to arrange a workout for Kaepernick.
“I’m not going, but we usually have somebody at all those types of workouts,” he replied. “We’ll see what’s up.”
The NFL has arranged a private workout for Kaepernick that all 32 teams are welcome to attend.
The NFL confirmed that 11 teams had said they would be at the workout: along with the Bucs, the Cardinals, the Falcons, the Browns, the Broncos, the Lions, the Dolphins, the Patriots, the Giants, the Jets and Washington.
Pro Football Talk said the 49ers, Cowboys and Seahawks also would be there.
