J. Cole has shared a letter from Colin Kaepernick to the New York Jets, who’s looking to join the team’s practice squad amid the recent season-ending injury sustained by quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Taking to Instagram on Tuesday (September 26), Cole posted the letter dated September 21 and explained his reasoning for sharing. In it, Kaep makes his case for starting small with the practice squad and why he may be a good fit to help get the team back on track.
“I asked Colin @kaepernick7 if I could share this letter with the world. He was reluctant,” Cole began. “My argument was that I believe the people and all organizations should know the truth about how hard he works and how much he still wants to play. And always has. In the end, he agreed to let me.”
He continued: “I wish the @nyjets organization luck. My boy @bas is a big ass fan so I saw the heartbreak of every Jets fan when Arod went down @richeisen Everyone from players, to coaches, to execs are feeling the pressure I’m sure. I hope y’all can turn it around, and I hope there’s a spot out there for my boy Kap. PEACE”
