Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was named as the face of Nike’s “Just Do It” advertising campaign, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary.
Kaepernick will have his own branded line, including shoes, shirts, jerseys and more. Kaep signed a top-level contract that puts him on par with a “top end NFL player” worth millions of dollars per year before royalties.
Kaepernick has been unable to land with a new team since he opted out of his Niners contract in March 2017. His collusion grievance against the NFL recently received a boost when it was ruled recently that there was enough evidence to move to a full hearing.
