Famed film director Spike Lee has joined the Colin Kaepernick debate, suggesting Sunday in an Instagram post that one of his hometown teams — the New York Jets — should sign the unemployed quarterback.
“The New York J-E-T-S Need A Quarterback,” wrote Lee, who said he spoke with Kaepernick over brunch. “Who Is The J-E-T-S Quarterback? Is My Man Joe Willie Namath Coming Back? Crazy Times We Live In.”
Lee used his post to rail against the NFL for excluding Kaepernick, who ignited a firestorm last fall because he refused to stand for the national anthem as a way to protest social and racial issues.
Lee said it “Smells MAD Fishy To Me, Stinks To The High Heavens” that Kaepernick, who opted out of his San Francisco 49ers contract, still doesn’t have a job.

“I had a newborn baby, so he was asking me how that was going, and then he kind of just joked around with how managers were using their relievers in the playoffs,” Britton said. “And he was like, ‘Well, I guess I scared everybody. Nobody wanted to get the backlash.’ You know, just good humor, like Buck has. Kind of just laughed it off and said no one wants to wear it like he did.”
