Adidas Interested In Signing Colin Kaepernick — If He Signs With An NFL Team First

Adidas is interested in signing Colin Kaepernick. However, there appears to be just one possible snag — the free-agent quarterback must first be signed by an NFL team.

That could be quite the sticking point, given that Kaepernick was made to sit out all of last season and has drawn little apparent interest this offseason. In the meantime, he and his legal team have been collecting evidence, including depositions from team owners and league officials, for a grievance case he filed against the league in October that claims his unemployment is related to his political activity, most notably his protests during the national anthem.

To hear top Adidas executive Mark King tell it, Kaepernick's protests are not a problem at all, but an attractive element. Still, King added a significant caveat in saying during a recent question-and-answer session at Arizona State University, "If he signs on a team, we would definitely want to sign him."

"We love athletes that have a platform to make the world a better place," said King (via The Arizona Republic), Adidas's North American president. "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."
