I know there are those of you who will always look at OJ Simpson as a killer and you’ll never accept him back into society, but since I stick to sports, I’m here for OJ’s sports takes and the guy just keeps bringing it day after day on Twitter where today he has career advice for Colin Kaepernick who is preparing for Saturday’s showcase for NFL teams. It’s being billed as Kaepernick’s big chance to get signed and back into the NFL and OJ thinks it’s time for Kap to start speaking for himself instead of his ‘people.’
“Sometimes your friends…can say and do things that aren’t in your best interest,” OJ said. “You are an intelligent guy, but you should tell some of these friends that you can speak for yourself.” I’m not sure if there’s something specific that triggered this career advice lesson from Juice, but you have to figure he’s been reading up on the Kap situation and he saw that handlers (maybe the girlfriend) is speaking for Kap way too much.
I’m just sayin’.
