Colin Kaepernick finally returned to the football field Sunday for Quavo's Huncho Day.

The star-studded event brought out Atlanta sports and music royalty, as well as some notable players from around the NFL, to Berkmar High School in Georgia.

Taylor Rooks noted some of the big names in attendance:

Kaepernick was one of the biggest draws in the game considering few had seen him play since he last suited up in the NFL in 2016.

There were a lot of eyes on him when he was on the field:

No doubt play of the day from #HunchoDay -- @Kaepernick7 to @QuavoStuntin on a 2-point conversion ... I'm saying call on the field stands after replay review. https://t.co/R4BQ2nF2Dj
