Gray, junto con Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jalen Reagor y Washington Commanders rookie Jahan Dotson, worked out with Kaepernick in Dallas. Gray said the former 49ers starter still has a strong arm.
“I worked out with Colin Kaepernick, and he has kind of like a bazooka, también,” Gray said. “That workout was pretty great. So I think I’m up for the task.”
He added that working with Kaepernick was meaningful for him.
“It was a great impression working out with a Super Bowl quarterback, a great quarterback at that,” él dijo. “It was a surreal moment for me, really.”
Kaepernick has been attempting an NFL comeback since 2016 but has not convinced a team to sign him. He hasn’t played a snap of football since the season he launched a protest against racial injustice during the national anthem.
Gray was the 49ers’ third-round draft pick out of SMU. He transferred to the Mustangs from Blinn College in Texas. In two seasons, he caught 82 pasa por 1,251 yardas y 13 touchdowns.
“It’s going to feel like a dream come true, De Verdad, just to be out there in an NFL uniform, on an NFL field,” Gray said. “It’s just going to feel like a great moment, a moment I can’t explain.”
