Colin Kaepernick tweets Jackie Robinson quote on national anthem

  Colin Kaepernick tweets Jackie Robinson quote on national anthem On Jackie Robinson Day in baseball, NFL free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick tweets a familiar-sounding quote from the MLB trailblazer.In Robinson's honor, all players, coaches, managers and umpires wear the No. 42, which MLB retired for all teams in 1997.

The way things look right now, Colin Kaepernick ’s biggest accomplishment as an NFL player will be taking a knee during the anthem. According to the latest reports, few if any NFL franchises have any interest in signing Kaepernick as either their starting or backup QB.

This season, Kaepernick has yet to be signed to a team — even as a backup QB — and many feel that he is being blackballed due to his role in the demonstrations. Well, it appears that Kap wants the league to know that if a team brings him on he’ll be willing to stand during the playing of the

Colin Kaepernick's bid to resume his professional football career received a major vote of confidence Monday.

Adidas North America president Mark King said the apparel giant would sign Kaepernick to an endorsement deal if an NFL team offers him a contract.

"If he signs on a team, we would definitely want to sign him," King said via Greg Moore of The Arizona Republic during an appearance at Arizona State's Global Sports Summit.

Kaepernick has been a leading voice in protests against police brutality and racial inequality, drawing the ire of fans, the President of the United States, and NFL owners alike. The quarterback has been a free agent since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March 2017, when it became apparent the team wouldn't keep him in its long-term plans.

  Roger Goodell Deposed In Colin Kaepernick Collusion Case, QB Sat Through The Hearing NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sat for a deposition for Colin Kaepernick's ongoing collusion case and the free agent quarterback was in attendance for the interview, according to Rick Maese of the Washington Post. Goodell's deposition lasted all morning in New York.In October, Kaepernick filed a grievance against NFL owners alleging that they conspired to keep him out of the league for protesting during the national anthem before games. Kaepernick started kneeling during the Star-Spangled Banner before the 2016 season to raise awareness for racial injustice and inequality in America.

Rap mogul Sean Combs said he would sign former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick if he can purchase the Carolina Panthers from owner Jerry Richardson, who’s been accused of sexual harassment and said Sunday he plans to sell the team in the wake of a league investigation.

The 2017 NFL season has already gotten off to a shameful start, and if rumors are true, things might be about to get a lot worse. Colin Kaepernick , who started this whole drama and who we all hoped would just disappear from the sport, has finally found a team possibly willing to sign him .

"We love athletes that have a platform to make the world a better place," King said. "If they’re an activist in a way that brings attention to something that moves the world forward, even if there's controversy at that moment, we're really interested in those athletes because I think it represents the world today."
