Former NFL football player Colin Kaepernick’s lawyer has criticized Jay-Z over his new partnership with the NFL.
The partnership between Jay-Z and the NFL will reportedly focus on music and social justice, according to a report published Monday by ABC News. The deal does not help out Kaepernick, who many claim was blacklisted from the NFL after kneeling during the national anthem.
Kaepernick - Lawyer - Mark - Geragos - Deal
Kaepernick’s lawyer Mark Geragos deemed the deal “cold-blooded” in an interview with ABC.
“This deal between Jay-Z and the NFL crosses the intellectual picket line,” Geragos said. He also noted that neither the NFL or Jay-Z reached out to Kaepernick before going public with the deal.
