J. Cole Spotlights Colin Kaepernick’s Work Ethic by Sharing Letter Where Kaep Asks to Join Jets’ Practice Squad

Kaepernick continued by reassuring the Jets GM that he’d be “honored and extremely grateful for the opportunity to come in and lead the practice squad.”

“Worst case scenario, you see what I have to offer and you’re not impressed,” he said. “Best case scenario, you realize you have a real weapon at your disposal in the event you ever need to use it.”

Kaepernick concluded his letter by reminding Douglas that he “never retired or stopped training,” before expounding on a training schedule that has remained the same for six years and includes a nine-hour, five-days-a-week regimen on the field and in the weight room.

J. Cole spent his caption campaigning for Kaepernick, adding that the former star quarterback was reticent to allow Cole to “share this letter with the world.”

“I asked Colin @kaepernick7 if I could share this letter with the world. He was reluctant,” Cole wrote. “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.”

The North Carolina rapper/producer concluded, “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.”
