Colin Kaepernick workout wide receiver lands NFL job, credits showcase for helping

Approved ~~ MJM

A wide receiver who was one of the targets Colin Kaepernick threw to during the quarterback’s controversial workout last month has found a job.

The Washington Redskins signed Jordan Veasy to their practice squad Wednesday. Veasy worked out with Kaepernick last month at an Atlanta high school. He caught a 50-yard pass from the former San Francisco 49ers star, which was described as one of the quarterback’s best throws.

Veasy was on the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad earlier this year but was cut in October. He told The Washington Post that it was the Kaepernick workout that helped him land another job in the NFL.

“It helped,” Veasy told the paper. “That’s one of the reasons I wanted to be a part of it. Just being a part of the history of it, and I knew it was going to help me.”
