TAMPA, Fla. -- Could we see quarterback Colin Kaepernick in a Tampa Bay Buccaneers uniform?

According to NFL's communication department, Tampa Bay is among the 11 teams that are scheduled to attend the former San Francisco 49er's workout Saturday. The list of teams include the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, New York Giants, New York Jets and the Washington Redskins.

"We expect additional teams to commit," said NFL's communication department in the tweet.

Kaepernick had been at the center of controversy for several years after refusing to stand during the national anthem before NFL games. The former 49er cited police brutality and the systemic oppression against people of color as some of the reasons he protested the national anthem.

CNN reports the Saturday workouts kick off at 3 p.m. ET in Atlanta.

Kaepernick last played in the NFL on January 1, 2017 for the San Francisco 49ers. No teams had offered him a contract since.

Kaepernick later accused league owners of colluding to prevent him from signing with a team. He settled the case with the NFL in February of 2019.
