Adidas: We'll sign Kaepernick if an National Football League team signs him

Adidas North American president Mark King said Friday that the apparel company wants to sign Colin Kaepernick, but has held off because he is not on an National Football League roster, according to Greg Moore of The Arizona Republic.

"We love athletes that have a platform to make the world a better place", King said according to The Republic.

Adidas doesn't want to give the impression that it's "taking advantage of this noise or interest that he had generated", Matt King of adidas said.

However, the perception in the football world is that teams are hesitant to sign him due to his political views with Kaepernick suing the NFL in October previous year in an ongoing case for alleged collusion in keeping him out of the league. The Seattle Seahawks planned to work out the QB last week, but the session was postponed due to reported concerns over the national anthem.

Of course, there's nothing stopping Adidas from offering Kaepernick an endorsement deal now, regardless of whether he's in the NFL.

It's understandable that Adidas would want Kaepernick to be on a team before signing him, given the exposure he would get in the country's most popular league.

If Colin Kaepernick finds himself on a team for this season, he'll not only have some guaranteed money on his contract but even more money coming from Adidas.

However, there's no solid evidence of any team willing to sign San Francisco's 2011 second-round pick. In fairness, both Morris and Davis have experience in the system favored by new Seattle offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, but the recent acquisitions allowed for a reasonable suspicion that, as with Adidas, the Seahawks would rather make a show of being interested in aligning with Kaepernick than make a contractual commitment to him.
