Cowboys Won't Be Present At Kaepernick Workout


FRISCO, Texas – The Cowboys won't have a representative at Colin Kapernick's NFL workout on Saturday.

It's been a topic of speculation since Kaepernick's league wide workout was announced on Tuesday. Earlier in the week, reports indicated the Cowboys would have someone in attendance, but team owner/general manager Jerry Jones refuted that on Friday morning.

"That's not correct, we're not going to have anybody there," Jones said on 105.3 FM The Fan. "Those are taped, and we'll look at the tape if we need information there."

Jones went on to say that he feels good about where the Cowboys sit at the quarterback position. Cooper Rush is in his third year as the backup to Dak Prescott, while rookie Clayton Thorson has been on the practice squad since the start of the season.

"We really like where we are with our quarterbacks," he said. "We've got some very young quarterbacks, and that's the way we think to bring anything up behind Dak is to do it with the young ones like we're doing."

Kaepernick is set to work out for several NFL clubs on Saturday afternoon after nearly three years out of the league.
