Tom Brady avoids questions about Nike’s Colin Kaepernick ads
Tom Brady may have subtly shared his opinion on Nike’s new ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick earlier this week, but the star quarterback has no interest in discussing his thoughts with the media.
When Nike released it’s new “Just Do It” campaign on Monday, Brady was among those who “liked” the ad on Instagram. That gave reporters even more of a reason to ask him about the campaign, but Brady didn’t take the bait.
Brady is asked about the Nike ad with Kaepernick.
"I really want to focus on football. Not my reaction to a lot of hot topics and so forth. Get ready for the Texans, they're a great team."

When asked about Colin Kaepernick, Brady reiterated he’d really like to focus on football. Knows people want his reaction to hot topics, but he says doesn’t want to get into it.

Brady has never shown a willingness to share his personal views during press conferences, so it’s no surprise he tried to keep the focus on the Patriots’ upcoming game against the Houston Texans. For what it’s worth, Brady has shown support for Kaepernick in the past.
