San Francisco 49ers Newcomer wide receiver Danny Gray gave a strong scouting report on Colin Kaepernick Thursday, revealing that he trained with the free agent quarterback to prepare to work with Trey Lance.
Gray, along with Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jalen Reagor Other Washington commanders rookie Jahan Dotson, worked with Kaepernick in Dallas. Gray said the former 49ers star still has a strong arm.
“I worked with Colin Kaepernick, and he has a kind of bazooka, too,” Gray said. “That training was fantastic. So I think I’m ready for the task.”
He added that working with Kaepernick was significant for him.
“It was a great impression to work with a Super Bowl quarterback, a great quarterback on top of that,” he said. “It was a surreal moment for me, really.”
Kaepernick has been attempting a comeback in the NFL since 2016 but hasn’t convinced a team to sign him. He hasn’t played football for a second since the season he launched a protest against racial injustice during the national anthem.
Gray was the third round choice of the 49ers by SMU. He moved to Mustangs from Blinn College in Texas. In two seasons, he received 82 passes for 1,251 yards and 13 touchdowns.
“It’s going to feel like a dream come true, really, just to be out there in an NFL uniform, on an NFL court,” Gray said. “It’s going to seem like a great moment, a moment I can’t explain.”
