Adidas Interested in Signing Kaepernick If He Signs With NFL Team First

Adidas Interested in Signing Kaepernick If He Signs With NFL Team First

The meeting was reportedly cancelled when Kaepernick refused to confirm whether he would still kneel in protest if signed with the team.

Kaepernick's protests spread to other players in the National Football League in 2016 and continued past year, sparking rejection from social conservatives and President Donald Trump, who called the protesting players unpatriotic, according to the Republic.

"We love athletes that have a platform to make the world a better place", King said.

Mark King also said that Adidas isn't a political brand.

Adidas is interested in signing Colin Kaepernick.

Seven Dead At Lee Correctional Institution
At least seven people are dead after fights broke out at a maximum security prison in sc , according to authorities. According to the agency, all staff and responding law enforcement officers were "safe and accounted for".

"Hey @adidasUS, @Kaepernick7 already has a winning team: Social Justice".

As reported last week, Kaepernick was set to work out for the Seattle Seahawks but they postponed the visit after he declined to say his protests were over. Kaepernick posted on Twitter this quote from Robinson, which he wrote in his 1972 autobiography: "I can not stand and sing the anthem".

But some folks are questioning why Adidas wouldn't just sign Kaepernick to an endorsement deal without an NFL contract, especially considering how many people believe the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback is being blacklisted by the league for his kneeling protest during the National Anthem.

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. I can not salute the flag.

"Hey, @adidas, sign @Kaepernick7 whether or not he plays in the @NFL!", Bishop Talbert Swan tweeted. In fairness, both Morris and Davis have experience in the system favored by new Seattle offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, but the recent acquisitions allowed for a reasonable suspicion that, as with Adidas, the Seahawks would rather make a show of being interested in aligning with Kaepernick than make a contractual commitment to him.
