Spike Lee is calling out NFL teams for not signing free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
The fact that a quarterback who started in a Super Bowl only four years ago remains unemployed “smells mad fishy” and “stinks to the high heavens,” Lee wrote in an Instagram post, a picture of himself smiling with the 29-year-old quarterback.

“The New York J-E-T-S need A Quarterback. Who Is the J-E-T-S Quarterback? Is My Man Joe Willie Namath Coming Back? Crazy Times We Live In,” Lee wrote.
