The NFL released a list of 11 teams that have committed to sending representatives to the workout the NFL arranged for Colin Kaepernick on Saturday and other teams are reportedly going to have someone there as well, but the Saints won’t be one of them.

Saints head coach Sean Payton addressed the team’s plans on Thursday and said that they weren’t planning to have anyone checking out the event. Payton cited a quarterback depth chart featuring Drew Brees, Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill as the reason why the team will be sitting this one out.

“I won’t pay attention because it isn’t a need for us,” Payton said, via

The Panthers also aren’t planning to send anyone to Atlanta for the workout, but the other two NFC South teams are among the confirmed attendees for Saturday.

  1. I won’t there.. “Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we’re going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don’t know, I don’t know if we’ll have enough time”

  2. Good for you Saints!! At least a couple teams aren’t letting the media force them into looking at someone they know doesn’t have what it takes anymore.

  3. Why is this talked about still.. if this was ANY other player it would never of happened. Teams could work him out anytime they wanted to but chose not to.
    What is this going to prove? That he can throw a football still??
    I’m so sick and tired of double standards and having to walk on eggshells with nonsense like this. Now if someone does not offer him a contract it will be another reason to claim he is being blackballed. It isn’t a no win situation. I want to see the presser when someone asks BB if they are sending someone hahaha

    The Saints know garbage when they see it.
    Bountygate! You’re right…they’re in New Orleans.

  5. He should of hit someone over the head with their helmet. Then he wouldn’t be in the mess that he got himself into. Dang knee taker.

    Gotta draw that line somewhere right.

  6. Bountygate. Still waiting for Goodell to release the thousand pages of ‘evidence’ he said he had. But don’t pay attention to the fact that the whistleblower (rat) was a fired disgruntled ball boy that is now on Goodell’s payroll on Park ave after all the smoke has cleared. Look it up.

  7. The Saints have three competent quarterbacks on their roster. The reporter who asked the question obviously has an agenda for asking if the Saints would be there.
