Colin Kaepernick, fresh off his recent settlement with the NFL over the collusion case he levied against it, is making moves. He’s not playing pro-football if he ever will again, but he is still doing big things with Nike, which has released a new Kaepernick jersey for sale.
This is the first real thing we’ve seen from Kaepernick since the settlement with the NFL, which also involved former teammate and activist Eric Reid.
The jersey itself is pretty nice — all Black, with white numbers. It’s clean and I’ll probably get one myself. This jersey is part of a larger campaign with Nike and Kaepernick, the face of the company’s 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign. Kaepernick’s deal with Nike is a “star” deal, on par with deals signed by top athletes in the NFL, and will include shoes, shirts, and of course: jerseys.
For those true to themselves on and off the field. Proudly, unapologetically and against all odds. This is only the beginning. #TrueTo7 https://t.co/lIzn4MNB77@girlsclubny @JRFoundation @peaceplayers @PowerPlayNYC pic.twitter.com/1sf4Nogs4g
