J. Cole hopped on Twitter to defend Colin Kaepernick against critics who think it's too late for the former San Francisco 49ers to make a return to the NFL.
Kaepernick hasn't played in the league since the 2017 season, but has maintained his agility –– which he has been showing off online in recent weeks, as teams make trades and prep for the upcoming season. Experts say Kaepernick's return could shake up the entire league, and the Dreamville CEO seemingly agrees.
"Respectfully lil bro, how could you know what what he has in him and what he doesn't?" Cole tweeted in response to a critic who said Kaep "has no football left in him."
The Off Season lyricist even tagged Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, NFL star Tom Brady, along with the Carolina Panthers, Las Vegas Raiders, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Twitter.
Cole's support for Kaepernick's potential return seems to be his appreciation for the nonstop work the 34-year-old athlete has put in over the years since his exit from the NFL.
The Fayetteville native wrote:
"And, respectfully, you’re 100% right about throwing against the wind and to ghost db’s. But always remember, he’s been doing that every day for 5 years, when the entire world was saying he had zero shot of ever playing again. Have you ever wanted something that bad? love!"
According to reports, Kaep has gotten calls from at least five teams who are curious about the quarterback. As far as an official return, only the off season will tell.
