Jay-Z is unhappy with the way Colin Kaepernick handled his workout on Saturday -- our sources feel Colin "turned a legitimate workout into a publicity stunt."
As we previously reported, Colin bailed on the NFL's workout Saturday and held his own workout instead. Colin claims he wanted transparency -- insisting the NFL would not allow him to have media at the workout.
Sources close to Jay-Z tell us ... Jay is unhappy with the way things went down because he feels the league was genuine in trying to give Colin an opportunity.
Colin went through with his workout at a high school nearby and reviews are mixed. Some scouts are reportedly impressed with Kap's arms strength and talent. And, others are reportedly saying he looked average at best.

Hey Colin - try tap dancing on street corners.
I’m just as shocked as jizzy.
Well, duh. It was always a publicity stunt!
JayZ has to walk a fine line. He was behind NFL giving this nutjob another chance..and now JayZ has to take the heat when it blew up in his face.
His ownership of an NFL team is on the line.
Still haven’t seen the NFL retract their statement about Nike despite NIKE asking them to do it.
Capernick is clearly more talented at trouble making than he is at football. I think he was just afraid he’d look like a has-been and that would take away any perceived value he has as a schiff disturber.
The only thing that Caper Nik has going for him is that he is the smartest and best looking guy in the world compared to Adam Schiff.
When you’re used to playing the victim you’re not able to see a great opportunity staring at you. Reminds me of the gay marriage thing. They just wanted the issue. They identify as victims more than anything else.
Kaeperpunk is a fool. If anyone involved with the NFL has not seen it by now, they never will.
I would be we dont have a political belief in common with JAYZ
But he actually Stopped that cat fight in the elevator some time back when most “gangstas” have no problem hitting a woman.
And he’s already called out Colin.
His political views are awful but he’s not the worst guy in the business.
I want someone to hire him and watch the disaster that ensues so he can bet relegated to the dust bin
Maybe Colin can join Kanye on Sundays going forward.
Just to be clear, jay-z planned a publicity stunt, and colin turned it into his own publicity stunt.
K needs a real job.
If he has no experience, he can get a start at McDonalds.
(he maybe will learn how to show simple respect for American customers)
True...JayZ envisioned quite a different outcome. He should have known better than to trust this SJW.
[Blind Gossip] You may already know that former professional football player Colin Kaepernick is holding a workout on Saturday in the hopes of being signed by another NFL team.
Like everything with Colin Kaepernick, this event is surrounded by controversy!
Eric Reid, a Carolina Panthers player (Go Panthers!) who was a teammate of Kaepernick on the San Francisco 49ers (Go Niners!), says that the workout feels like a PR stunt.
Since Reid is a friend of Kaepernicks, it is not clear if he meant that Kaep was stunting or if the NFL was stunting.
Tom Brady, quarterback of the New England Patriots (Go Pats!), says that it is pretty cool that Kaepernick is getting an opportunity to prove himself.
Some NFL teams are going. Some are not. At last report, somewhere between eleven and twenty-four teams will have a representative in attendance.
However, one of those teams has no intention of signing him.
Their attendance is fake. They are sending someone only to avoid accusations of racism. They absolutely will not sign him.
We do not know how many of the other teams that will be there feel the same way.
We also do not know how many teams that will not be there would like to sign Kaep but face too much negative pressure from owners or fans or sponsors.
The reality is that football is a form of entertainment. Although in an ideal world movies would be cast or athletes would be signed based purely on talent, in the real world there are a lot of other factors that come into play when deciding to make someone part of your team.
Colin Kaepernick has not played professional football in three years.
I was unaware the media makes hiring decisions on NFL teams...
Teams sent their representatives to see his workout...
The media is a none factor in that decisions...
JayZ I am disappointed that you didn’t see through Colin from his first kneel. It was always about him!
