Reports are now surfacing stating multi-hyphenate JAY-Z played a part in Colin Kaepernick‘s upcoming private NFL workout.

According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, JAY-Z had influence over the league’s decision to finally give the former quarterback and social activist a chance. “I’m also told that JAY-Z who is working with the NFL on some social justice initiatives was involved in this and pushed this idea to some extent,” said the NFL analyst.

This may come as a relief to most JAY-Z fans, who thought he was “selling out” after inking a deal with the league. The artist also added more fuel to the fire when he unintentionally stated we have “moved past kneeling” during a press conference. JAY’s role in the NFL is to manage the music and entertainment aspects of the league.

The private workout will take place this Saturday in Atlanta at 3 p.m. EST and will include on-field work and an interview for the current free-agent quarterback. All NFL teams have been invited to attend, and for those who can’t make it, a video of both the workout and interview will be made available. Kaepernick has not played in the NLF since 2016 when he pioneered the “Take a Knee” stance. Let us know your thoughts on the situation in the comment section below.
