Dallas Cowboys fans are threatening to boycott the team if it signs free agent Colin Kaepernick as the former 49ers quarterback prepares for his private workout this weekend amid speculation that the session could be a PR stunt orchestrated by NFL officials.

The NFL invited all 32 teams to attend the workout on Saturday - offering Kaepernick the chance to return to the field for the first time since his protests against racial injustice roiled the sport three years ago.

'I wont watch another cowboy game in my life if they pick that POS up,' one fan tweeted in response to Anderson's post.

'You can't call yourself America's team and then sign someone who kneels for the National Anthem,' a person who claims to have been a Cowboys fan since the 1970s wrote. 'If it happens, I will be a [Houston] Texans fan.'

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett remained tight lipped on whether the invitation would be accepted during a press conference Wednesday.

The Cowboy's current quarterback, Dak Prescott, is out of contract at the end of the season.
