Adidas Wants to Sign Colin Kaepernick if He Plays in the NFL Next Season

Colin Kaepernick‘s road back to the NFL has been one paved with roadblocks. Following the kneel that shook the league and the public consciousness at its foundation, Kaepernick has with great certainty been blocked from returning to the National Football League. Despite his formidable talent, past successes, and lesser quarterback signings since he took his stand against racial injustice and police brutality at the hands of blacks in 2016, the former San Francisco 49ers QB has been without work in the league he dominated not that long ago.

But where there’s a will there’s a way, and if that will is for Colin to return to the NFL next season, adidas would be first in line to sign him.

“If he signs on a team, we would definitely want to sign him,” said Mark King, adidas North America President/CEO, at Arizona State University’s Global Sport Summit per a report from AZ Central.

King went on to say that he doesn’t want to come off as “taking advantage of this noise or interest that he had generated.” He does however believe in athletes sparking change and leading their own revolutions. “If they’re an activist in a way that brings attention to something that moves the world forward, even if there’s controversy at that moment, we’re really interested in those athletes because I think it represents the world today.”

Kaepernick, though, in spite of this endorsement offer, remains far from signing with an NFL team. Since 2016, offers and interest have been all but absent. That is until just recently, when the Seattle Seahawks wanted to bring Kaepernick in for an interview and subsequent workout. Unfortunately, the meeting was postponed indefinitely when Colin couldn’t commit to discontinuing his pregame protest.

Kaepernick was the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem in 2016. Since that time, many other players – both black and otherwise – have followed his lead.

Is Cardi B’s ‘Bickenhead’ Her Next ‘Bodak Yellow’? And More Moments From Invasion Of Privacy

Bodak Bar: “I took pictures with Beyoncé, I met Mama Knowles / I’m the rose that came from the concrete in the Rolls”

“Best Life,” featuring Chance The Rapper, is Invasion of Privacy‘s first great album cut. It isn’t as club-ready as “Bickenhead,” as worldly as “I Like It,” or vulnerable like “Thru Your Phone,” but it doesn’t need to be.

The genius of “Best Life” is the way it positions Cardi next to Chance. The Chicago artist doesn’t outrap Cardi like he tends to do and he might not have been able to considering how hard the former Love & Hip Hop actress spits throughout the album. Instead of lyrical competition, the low-key song allows for both rappers to get inspirational while collectively geeking out about how they met Beyoncé.

Nike LeBron 15 “New Heights” Drops Next Week

Interesting enough, if you’ve kept a close eye on LeBron James throughout much of the Cavs current 9 game winning streak, his choice of footwear isn’t what you’d think it would be. In lieu of wearing his newly released Nike LeBron 15, the King has preferred to lace up the Nike LeBron Soldier 11 – his postseason shoe from last season.

Aside from that noteworthy development, many others continue to deem the LeBron 15 as a great fit both on and off the court. Next week, one of its most adoring colorways will land in stores. Dubbed the “New Heights” edition, this Cavs centric pair employs multicolored Flyknit led by Dark Atomic Teal complimented by secondary Team Red accents.

Expect the Nike LeBron 15 “New Heights” on December 7 at select Swoosh retailers everywhere.

First Look // Kristaps Porzingis’ adidas Crazy Explosive PE For Next Season

words & images // Nick DePaula:

Since signing on with adidas last fall, New York Knicks franchise forward Kristaps Porzingis had been one of a select few headlining the brand’s Crazy Explosive series. He had a trio of Knickerbocker-themed player exclusives of the first silhouette all last season, and as expected, Kristaps will once again be lacing up the newest version of the model later this fall.

In a clean and mean black upper with orange accents throughout, Porzingis’ road sneaker for the 2017-2018 NBA season can be seen below. Along the heel, a simple ‘KP’ font complements the ‘adidas Basketball’ labeling, while each of the outsoles also feature more storytelling. The right shoe has a Statue of Liberty outline, highlighting his current home of New York, while the left shoe incorporates Latvia’s Freedom Monument statue, a nod to his home country. Both monuments feature similar color tones of mint green and gold, which could also make for some interesting future products.

Check out the sneaker below in KP’s exact size 16, shot in Las Vegas at the adidas LVL3 event space, which is open to consumers both today and tomorrow. For more on the new Crazy Explosive 17, check out our in-depth interview with adidas designer Jesse Rademacher.
