We've had discussions about Kaepernick before, but I was not able to pull up our prior discussions this morning.
Since Nike started their ad campaign, the value of the company has gone up $6 billion.
Two teams so far (the Patriots and the Raiders) apparently are interested in talking to him, but this morning's surprise was the San Francisco 49ers, who just lost their starting quarterback:
Hopefully he gets serious consideration. The corrupt collusion of ownership is pathetic. SF is in a progressive blue state so anything is possible.
Best of luck to him.
The Chicago Bears could use a fine quarterback, that team always ends up with second rate QB's, mainly because of McCaskey ownership. Before lousy QB Trubiski, the had Jay Cutler, another lousy QB who was paid well and performed poorly.
I happen to think Nike made a smart business decision, it'll surely help Kaepernick land more endorsements.
Nike's support of Kaepernick has resulted in some very positive results for the company. In contrast, Land O'Lakes support for Iowa Republican Steve King (the member of Congress most openly affiliated with white nationalism) has been a disaster.
Although the company gave a modest $2500 to Trump's campaign in June, they have now withdrawn their support due to the fact that their support has generated threats of a boycott of the company's products from hundreds of people.

Very valid. And Nike has done their research about who buys their products, and its not trump supporters. Nike understands that they are loosing the trump supporters, but likely are getting a 4:1 payout from the demographic that Nike is targeting.
