However, the latest design from Colin Kaepernick could help the brand’s turnaround plan since it suffered a slump in shares in 2024. Meanwhile, the man of the hour, Kaepernick has set forward his message with the sportswear brand in a poster that reads, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything”.

Despite the backlash and the stir in his NFL career, the former quarterback has never stepped back from his activism. But that doesn’t mean that his love of the NFL is waning anytime soon.

Not long ago, Colin Kaepernick hit the headlines for wanting to make a comeback to the NFL. In his letter to Joe Douglas, the New York Jets GM, Kaepernick requested to be an asset by leading their practice squad. Though the expectations didn’t come to fruition, Nike US Football included him in the Class of 2024 campaign, naming him amongst ‘The Ones’ who could be game changers. The brand captioned the campaign video writing,

He met the NFL talents at Nike World Headquarters in Oregon, who are looking forward to leaving an impact in the big league. While it is hard to believe that Kaepernick will return to the NFL, he certainly hasn’t lost hope. Meanwhile, he continues to stand strong as a civil rights activist, a journey that he started in 2016.
