The Colin Kaepernick Nike commercial that created waves all weekend is out.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback tweeted the video Wednesday with the caption: "Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything. #JustDoIt." Kaepernick narrates the video, which will be played during NFL games all season.
Despite Kaepernick not playing in the NFL since 2016, Nike has continued to pay him as part of their endorsement partnership. Nike also is the official apparel supplier for the NFL in a deal that runs through 2028, putting the company in an odd spot. Kaepernick is suing NFL owners for conspiring to keep him out of the league because of him kneeling during the national anthem as a protest against social and racial injustices.
Mediator Stephen Burbank announced Thursday that Kaepernick's complaint against the 32 owners can go forward to trial.
