The president of Adidas's North America division said the company wants to sign Colin Kaepernick to an endorsement deal if he can find a new team. Mark King the company's president said, "If he signs on a team, we would definitely want to sign him." He noted the company doesn't want to come off as "taking advantage of this noise or interest that he had generated."

"We love athletes that have a platform to make the world a better place," King said. "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. But allowing our athletes to tell their story, it's really important to us
