  • Nike debuts powerful Colin Kaepernick'Just Do It campaign

Nike did not immediately respond to requests for comment. "Even if it means sacrificing everything", accompanied by the hashtag #JustDoIt.

Colin Kaepernick is the new face of Nike's 30th-anniversary "Just Do It" campaign, which includes his picture above the following message: "Believe in Something". The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because Nike hasn't officially announced the contract.

At the same time, the online community wondered if Kaepernick's leadership qualities and advocacy for equality would inspire Nike to adopt better labor practices around the world. Nike also will create an apparel line for Kaepernick and contribute to his Know Your Rights charity.

The player has been out of the NFL since 2016 when he initially started kneeling for the national anthem to raise awareness of the mistreatment of black people by the police. Kaepernick began his kneeling during the national anthem in the 2016 season and was not with an NFL team a year ago.


Kaepernick and another former 49ers player, Eric Reid, have not been signed by any of the NFL's 32 teams since their protests spread around the league.

That policy has yet to go into effect as negotiations between the league and the players' union over the policy continue.

Kaepernick received an enthusiastic welcome from fans at the U.S. Open's showcase tennis match between Serena and Venus Williams at the weekend when he was shown raising his fist on the big screen. Chief Executive Officer Mark Parker apologized for the company's work culture in May to employees in a company-wide meeting.
