Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarter-back, is now without an NFL team after he became the first player to take a knee during the national anthem before a match.

Brian Searcy (Ret.) on the fallout from Nike naming Colin Kaepernick the face of its "Just Do it" anniversary campaign. About halfway through, he says, "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything", an apparent reference to his career as quarterback for the 49ers, which ended past year following his controversial decision to kneel while the national anthem was sung to protest injustice. "Anybody that wants to burn or throw away their NIKE shoes b/c of the new Kaepernick ad".

The ad will debut on NBC in the NFL's opening round encounter between the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles.
Kaepernick, 30, has not played since the 2016 season and filed a grievance last October against NFL owners for collusion, claiming they schemed to keep him off the football field because of his protests, not his football playing ability.
