“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.
