Jay-Z Thinks Kaepernick Turned His ‘Legitimate Workout’ Into a Publicity Stunt

Jay-Z seemed to take issue with the way Colin Kaepernick’s workout for the NFL unfolded Saturday. The rapper and mogul believed Kaepernick turned his “legitimate workout” into a publicity stunt, according to XXL.

Jay-Z pressured the NFL into hastily putting the workout together in order to repair his own public image, according to Dan Patrick — Jay-Z said he “took a reputational bullet” after signing a deal with the NFL to help with social justice efforts, per Patrick’s reporting.

Kaepernick was originally supposed to workout at the Atlanta Falcons’ training facility in Flowery Branch, Georgia. The 32-year-old instead opted to workout in front of teams at a high school in Atlanta after the NFL would not allow media into his session at the Falcons’ facility.
