Adidas will Sign Kaepernick if an NFL Team Signs Him

Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick

Under much scrutiny for the last few years over his peaceful protest of the national anthem, Colin Kaepernick has failed to find a home thus far in the NFL.

In the interview with King, he said Adidas isn't trying to capitalize on "this noise or interest that he had generated", but is all for Kaepernick's position.

According to AZCentral.com, Adidas' North America Division President Mark King said an athlete like Kaepernick, who "stands up against all odds" is an athlete they want representing Adidas. "If he signs on a team, we would definitely want to sign him". Colin and the team are at headquarters to depose Goodell as part of Colin's collusion case against the NFL - in which he claims league officials like Goodell conspired with team owners to blackball him because of his kneeling protest during the national anthem.

Kaepernick began protesting during the anthem in 2016, as a way of bringing attention to racial injustice, specifically police brutality toward unarmed black men.

"It was rumored that Kaepernick was going to try out for the Seattle Seahawks however allegedly it didn't happen after the former football player wouldn't say if he planned to stop his pregame protests". On Sunday, he posted a photo of Jackie Robinson, with the Robinson quote, "I can not stand and sing the anthem. I can not salute the flag; I know that I am a black man in a white world". "But allowing our athletes to tell their story, it's really important to us".

"Hey, @adidas, sign @Kaepernick7 whether or not he plays in the @NFL!", Bishop Talbert Swan tweeted.

It's understandable that Adidas would want Kaepernick to be on a team before signing him, given the exposure he would get in the country's most popular league.
