  • Adidas Wants To Give Colin Kaepernick An Endorsement Deal If He Returns To NFL

Colin Kaepernick was at the NFL league offices in New York City Tuesday as part of the deposition of commissioner Roger Goodell in the collusion case filed by the free agent quarterback. The meeting was reportedly cancelled when Kaepernick refused to confirm whether he would still kneel in protest if signed with the team.

Still, the announcement that he would sign Kaepernick to a deal, but only if a team signs him first may seem a bit like self-serving, virtue signaling for King and Adidas. "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".

TMZ noted Kaepernick and his team previously deposed Houston Texans owner Bob McNair, and Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reported Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was also deposed.

Adidas said they want to show support for Kaepernick's activism and they are not "taking advantage of this noise or interest that he had generated".

Head of the Liberia delegation at MEPC Isaac Jackson told The Loadstar Liberia could "fully support" the initial draft strategy. It called the move, agreed on Friday in London, "a first but critical step towards the industry's decarbonisation".


But, apparently, the anti-American protests do not bother Adidas. Now Kaepernick is causing a buzz regarding his potential return to the NFL after he was dropped from his former team, the San Francisco 49ers- and if Kaepernick does return to the NFL, Adidas is hoping to sign a deal with the former quarterback.

The unemployed quarterback told supporters he's "doing great", adding that "I love y'all and we gonna keep going!"

Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against the National Football League, claiming team owners have conspired to leave him unemployed since a year ago because of his political and social beliefs. "But allowing our athletes to tell their story, it's really important to us". The Seattle Seahawks had more anthem protesters than any other team in the league past year, other than San Francisco.
