Adidas: We'll Sign Kaepernick, If He Joins a Team

Adidas: We'll Sign Kaepernick, If He Joins a Team

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick talks during a news conference after an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Rams, Dec. 24, 2016. In the meantime, he and his legal team have been collecting evidence, including depositions from team owners and league officials, for a grievance case he filed against the league in October that claims his unemployment is related to his political activity, most notably his protests during the national anthem.

King's remarks came during a question-and-answer session with Kenneth L. Shropshire, CEO of Arizona State University's Global Sport Institute, at the school's Global Sport Summit.

According to AZCentral.com, Adidas' North America Division President Mark King said an athlete like Kaepernick, who "stands up against all odds" is an athlete they want representing Adidas. King added that the company did not want to look like it was "taking advantage of the noise or interest that he had generated", but added that Adidas has shifted to represent an "intersection between culture and sports" over the past three years, according to The Republic. Texans owner Bob McNair was also deposed by Kaepernick's legal team, and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider are among those expected to be deposed as well. If he had one, Kaepernick could be in line for some endorsement deals. If even a politically active team like Seattle wouldn't sign Kaepernick, then the chances of him getting picked up anywhere else seem extremely small.

"Hey, @adidas, sign @Kaepernick7 whether or not he plays in the @NFL!", Bishop Talbert Swan tweeted.

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. "I know that I am a Black man in a White world".
