Jim Jones Part Owner Of Richmond Roughriders
Congratulations are in order to Jim Jones. The Dipset rapper was named as a minority owner of the Richmond Roughriders on Thursday.
His first order of business was inviting Colin Kaepernick to join his team.
Here’s the scoop via WTVR.com:
The “We Fly High” rapper performed at halftime during the Rough Riders win in the Arena Pro Football League title. He apparently liked what he saw.
While talking to the media Thursday, Jones repeated his offer to Colin Kaepernick to join the Roughriders and resurrect his pro career.
“You know, he didn’t get to play this year in the NFL and in Arena football he can keep his skills up to par, break some records, have some fun,” said Jones.
Kaepernick was the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem to protest police brutality in 2016. After becoming a free agent in 2017, he has not been signed by an NFL team.
“The kids can come out to see him. I mean that’s what he’s all about right? So maybe he might reply. We put some more pressure on him. The offer still stands man, we’re looking for you. Roughriders,” said Jones.
There is no word if Kaepernick has any interest.
The Roughriders will begin their second season in existence in a new league, the American Arena League. Their season will kickoff in March.
In a post on his Instagram page, Jim extended an invitation to both Colin and Johnny Manziel writing, “I’m just saying @richmond_roughriders we valid.”
How dope would it be if both men accepted Jim’s offer?
