San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Danny Gray gave a great scouting report on Colin Kaepernick on Thursday, revealing he trained with the free agent quarterback to prepare to work with Trey Spear.

Gray, along with Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jalen Reagor and Washington Commanders rookie Jahan Dotson, worked with Kaepernick in Dallas. Gray said the former 49ers starter still had a strong arm.

“It was a great feeling to work with a Super Bowl quarterback, a great quarterback at that,” he said. “It was a surreal moment for me, really.”

Kaepernick has been trying to come back to the NFL since 2016 but hasn’t convinced a team to sign him. He hasn’t played football since the season he launched a protest against racial injustice during the national anthem.

Gray was the SMU 49ers’ third-round draft pick. He was traded to the Blinn College Mustangs in Texas. In two seasons, he caught 82 passes for 1,251 yards and 13 touchdowns.

“It’s going to feel like a dream come true, really, just being out there in an NFL uniform, on an NFL field,” Gray said. “It’s just going to be a big moment, a moment that I can’t explain.”
