Kaepernick, best known for protesting during the national anthem in the 2016 NFL season to bring attention to social inequality and racial injustice, has mostly avoided headlines the last few months. He and Eric Reid settled their collusion case with the NFL in February, leading to reports that he would likely make an NFL return in the future.
The 31-year-old was a star basketball player in high school, in addition to his success in baseball and football.
