Kaepernick’s season-long protest of the national anthem ahead of 49ers games became a topic of national debate last year. Kaepernick said he was protesting police treatment of minorities in the country, but has said he plans to stand for the anthem next season. Lee, who said he had brunch with Kaepernick, wondered on Instagram what crime Kaepernick has committed that he hasn’t garnered interest and that the lack of suitors “smells mad fishy to me.” Lee suggested that his hometown Jets take a look at Kaepernick.
The 29-year-old German is back at No. 1 in the WTA rankings, reclaiming that spot from Serena Williams. Kerber moved to the top of the rankings Monday, about six months after she originally ascended to No. 1 for the first time, overtaking Williams by winning the U.S. Open. That ended Williams’ run of 186 weeks at the top. Williams reclaimed No. 1 in late January when she won the Australian Open for her 23rd Grand Slam title. However, the American has not played since then because of an injured left knee. She sat out the Indian Wells tournament that ended Sunday and will miss this week’s Miami Open.
