Colin Kaepernick Becomes Face of Nike 'Just Do It' Campaign

Nike debuts powerful Colin Kaepernick'Just Do It campaign

Kaepernick will be one of the faces of Nike's 30th anniversary of the "Just Do It" campaign. Labor Day - the words superimposed on an image of his face.

Back in April, Adidas made it known that it would be interested in signing embattled free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick if he ended up playing in the National Football League this year.

Kaepernick contends the owners violated their collective bargaining agreement with players by conspiring to keep him off teams.

Kaepernick - who led the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2013 where they lost to the Ravens - was the catalyst for the ongoing protests of NFL players kneeling during the pre-game playing of the National Anthem.

Jose Mourinho delighted Manchester United fans at Old Trafford on Friday night
Jurgen tells you what he wants. "And I answer the question". "I had great success last season". To the manager that finished fifth? Because he never win anything in worldwide for example...

Nike is turning to Colin Kaepernick for the 30th anniversary of its "Just do it" ad campaign.

Regardless of where you stand on Kaepernick, though, that the ad dropped just days before the new NFL season kicks off on Thursday night will surely cause a lot of conversation and probably a new headache for the league.

Amid blowback, the National Football League has since halted its planned enforcement of the anthem rule this July, however. Kaepernick first sat and then kneeled during the anthem in the 2016 preseason, and continued his protest through the rest of the season.

She said Nike unveiled the campaign last week by releasing a film featuring Serena Williams entitled "Voice of Belief".

"This is a very winning, strong issue for me", Trump told Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones previous year, according to a sworn deposition Jones gave in connection with Kaepernick's lawsuit.

The Kaepernick-Nike campaign has actually been a while in the making, according to Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson. The brand is the official uniform sponsor of the NFL. He is now suing the NFL claiming he is being kept out of the league because of his part in the protests.

Nike unleashed a potent new ad Monday featuring Colin Kaepernick on Monday.

Alberta out of climate plan
