Kaepernick tweeted an image from Nike’s new “Just Do It” campaign on Monday. The advertisement features a close-up shot of the quarterback’s face and reads, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”
According to Darren Rovell, Nike has been paying Kaepernick all along waiting for the right moment to unleash the ad.

Kaepernick has been endorsed by Nike since 2011, though the company has, until now, stayed quiet about his history of protest.
