Today, Colin Kaepernick will finally get his workout with quite a few teams from the NFL.
Earlier this week, we reported that Jay-Z may have been involved, and now we are finding out, he had a huge role in facilitating the event.
According to sports analyst Dan Patrick, Jay-Z has been feeling the backlash for speaking with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and he wanted to fix the "reputational bullet."
"My source says Jay-Z was putting pressure on the commissioner because according to my source, Jay-Z said that he took a reputational bullet for the commissioner when they had that press conference, his new role with the NFL—the social agenda, social injustice," Patrick said.
Patrick went on to say...
"He was going to help with the entertainment for halftime, all of this. And my source said that Jay-Z was pressuring the commissioner to do the right thing and have this workout for Colin Kaepernick and that he had taken a reputational bullet when he first took this job. And I understand that. But that was what I was told with the pressure here with the commissioner—that Jay-Z said, 'Hey look, I don't want to be viewed as a sellout here!' Those are my words, not his, but he was saying a reputational bullet."
We'll see how the workouts go and what comes from them.
