Earlier this week, former NFL player Colin Kaepernick landed a private opportunity with the NFL, Saturday (11/16). Finally, Kaepernick will have the opportunity to prove that he belongs in the league.

In more news, sources are now saying that hip-hop mogul, Jay Z played a part in pushing the idea. NFL Analyst, Ian Rapoport revealed –

 “I am also told that JAY-Z—who has been working with the NFL on some social justice initiatives—was involved in this and pushed this idea to some extent.”


The Source reports:

This comes as a relief to most Hov fans because he was accused of “selling out” after inking a deal with the league after they blackballed Kaep for the past three years. He unintentionally added more fuel to the fire after saying we have “moved past kneeling” during a press conference.

JAY-Z’s main role is to manage the music and entertainment aspect of the NFL, but he’s working to revamp the Inspire Change program and it looks like he’s starting with Kaep.

Kaepernick shared his excitement on Twitter:

“I’m just getting word from my representatives that the NFL league office reached out to them about a workout in Atlanta on Saturday. I’ve been in shape and ready for this for 3 years, can’t wait to see the head coaches and GMs on Saturday.”
