Jay Z received heavy criticism when it was announced that he’d be partnering with the NFL.
On one hand, people called him a “sell-out,” while others saw it as an opportunity for Colin Kaepernick to play professional football again.
Yesterday (Nov. 12th), it was revealed that the NFL arranged a workout opportunity for Kaepernick. This Saturday, he’ll be able to practice in front of NFL agents in Atlanta.
Reported on XXL, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport claimed that Jay Z influenced setting up the workout and pushed for the idea. Rapoport claims that the upcoming workout is not part of the settlement Kaepernick reached back in February with the NFL.
Two notes: 1. Jay-Z, a partner with the NFL on social justice, had some influence here. 2. This is not part of Kaepernick’s settlement, nor did he ask for this in his settlement. https://t.co/6l7z3MYJ5x

Hopefully, this leads to Kaepernick getting back on the football field again since it’s been a three-years!
