WTF AJ Jenkins, why are you not in Atlanta???

This - the kid should have been there already, but it's good to finally have SOME sort of idea if/when he may get there. I certainly hope he sticks by what he said and comes out of camp as the #2 WR. Everyone here who has ragged him has legitimate reason to, I will not argue those points. I just have a little more patience and trust I guess.
In the article, they sited the Bill Belichek quote that if your draft picks are playing on the team in their first year, you probably don't have a team going to the Super Bowl. I think Jenkins at least deserves a second season before people start drawing conclusions that he's a bust. He's very fast. He has good height. He is evidently bulking up. He may be a surprise next season.
Hey I think the guy's just a late bloomer. I mean he is showing up to work out with Kap, even though a week+ later. If he gets 30 rec. - around 400 yds. this season we have no worries.

Why should he be in Atlanta to swim and what-not? CES isn't a WR camp.
Is Kaepernick going to spend the whole offseason at that gym in Atlanta and does that mean that anyone who needs to work with him needs to go to him across the country?

As I understood the first article about it, Kaepernick was going to be there for a maximum of about 4 to 6 weeks.

Because he got paid a lot and didn't produce and if he wants to keep his job, he needs to show the effort.

Just like any other job on this earth.

That is what I figured. Kaepernick is there to swim, run with a parachute and do other cross training stuff. It isn't like it is a camp where he and Jenkins can work on football stuff together.

I agree the guy should be working but why in Atlanta rather than here?

Well, I forget his name, but there is a QB coach there who has worked with Kaepernick on mechanics, so I think he's doing a little of that as well.

He lives a few hours away from Atlanta
Exactly how many times has Crabtree or Moss ever worked out with their QBs in the offseason, let alone 2 weeks after the season ended. You guys need to chill out, now. Jenkins is a first round pick. Lockette and Hall are trying to be on NFL rosters next year. For the EXPECTATIONS to be for him to be training like an undrafted rookie 14 days after the Super Bowl is absurd.

Because he's small, and not that strong (his own words). He will work on strength and conditioning, just like Kaep, Hall and Lockette are doing. No, it won't be strictly football related, but it will help them to get to know each other. Who knows? Maybe they toss the ball around after working out. I don't know that they do, but I can't say they don't either. I think it's good that he's going to work out - period. One of the knocks on AJ was his lack of conditioning and strength, remember?
Smiley, it isn't the old days anymore. The players who have their heads on straight are basically training all year around. In Jenkins case, he himself said he had to get bigger and stronger. That's the kind of place where you do that. And then, there is the whole thing with Kaepernick's fastballs. Packers players used to say that they had to catch Aaron Rogers passes year around to be ready for his fastballs because they just got to their hands faster than anything they had ever experienced in college or the pros. It's the same thing with Kaepernick only more intense. Pro Football focus says Kaepernick at times throws the fastest ball in the league.

That is a good reason.

What about running the Hill with Rice or working out in Santa Clara?
If he is in Georgia anyway I get it and I get why he would visit Kaepernick there for a few weeks but people here are trashing him like he is avoiding camp. It is just another training facility.
