SportsPulse: The latest Nike-Kaepernick shoe debacle isn't an opportunity to pick sides but a chance to take time to learn lessons about our own country's history, says USA TODAY Sports' Christine Brennan. USA TODAY

Colin Kaepernick has a workout scheduled for this weekend in Atlanta as he looks for a way back into the NFL, and the Detroit Lions will be one of the teams in attendance.

Lions coach Matt Patricia said Wednesday that the Lions will send a representative to Saturday's workout, which ESPN reported will include on-field work and interviews.

"We, as an organization, we always do our due diligence on all players that are available," Patricia said.
