Adidas Interested in Signing Kaepernick If He Signs With NFL Team First

2018 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival – Weekend 1 – Day 1

According to AZCentral.com, Adidas' North America Division President Mark King said an athlete like Kaepernick, who "stands up against all odds" is an athlete they want representing Adidas.

"Hey @adidasUS, @Kaepernick7 already has a winning team: Social Justice".

Kaepernick reportedly just had a tryout with the Seattle Seahawks postponed by team management because he wasn't willing to commit to not kneeling in protest should they sign him. With yet another team looking unlikely to sign him due to his kneeling during the national anthem, the quote could not come at a more timely moment.

King noted that Adidas doesn't want to give the impression it's "taking advantage of this noise or interest that [Kaepernick] had generated". Along with a photo of the man who broke down walls for black men in Major League Baseball, Colin included a quote saying, "I can not stand and sing the anthem". I can not salute the flag. "But allowing our athletes to tell their story, it's really important to us". But it's not like the quarterback would be able to wear Adidas cleats during NFL games, as Nike has an exclusive deal with the league to supply its uniforms and apparel that runs until 2028. Kaepernick, whose post-NFL accolades include being named GQ magazine's "Citizen of the Year" in November, could appeal to some of the same demographic, at least in theory, without ever having to step behind center again.

Lockheed Martin (LMT) Stake Held by Public Employees Retirement Association Of Colorado
Buckingham Capital Management Inc. acquired a new position in Lockheed Martin in the 3rd quarter valued at approximately $208,000. Nine equities research analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and ten have given a buy rating to the company.

"Hey, @adidas, sign @Kaepernick7 whether or not he plays in the @NFL!", Bishop Talbert Swan tweeted.

That lucky break has been few and far between for the National Football League activist, who recently was shut out of a promising meeting with the Seattle Seahawks. A source told the sports network that Seattle was still considering Kaepernick but has not made a decision.
