Rapper Jay-Z, who has reportedly been pushing for the NFL to give Colin Kaepernick another chance behind the scenes, is apparently not happy with how the quarterback handled himself during his workout in Atlanta.
On Saturday afternoon Kaepernick and his team abruptly changed the location of his workout after a dispute with the NFL because he wanted the media present and he didn’t want to sign an “unusual” liability waiver.
The NFL went on to release a statement expressing disappointment in Kaepernick’s decision to move the workout at the last minute.
Immediately after the workout was over, Kaepernick spoke to the media and publicly called out NFL owners.
According to Complex, Jay-Z is disappointed with Kaepernick and believes Kaep turned a legitimate workout with NFL teams into a publicity stunt.
After pushing for Colin Kaepernick to get a chance to showcase his skills, JAY-Z is reportedly upset with the way he handled his NFL-organized workout.
A source close to the situation tells Complex JAY-Z feels disappointed with Colin’s actions and believes he turned a legitimate workout into a publicity stunt. Kaepernick decided to forgo a workout hosted by the NFL and organized his own after the league barred media access.
Jay’s sentiments are similar to ones shared by Stephen A. Smith on Saturday night.
“He don’t want to play,”. “He wants to be a martyr.”
“You don’t want to work. You just want to make noise and you want to control the narrative,” “It’s over.”
As of now we haven’t heard anything about the NFL teams actually felt about Kaepernick changing venues at the last minute but I’m sure we’ll hear from them soon.
