They say any publicity is good publicity and it looks like Colin Kaepernick is a prime example of just that. As his on the field protest continues, his 49ers jersey has shot up to the number one top-selling jersey in the NFL Shop. Reports state that in the last week he has sold more jerseys than he has in the last eight months.
Last year Kaepernick’s jersey was on clearance after he was cut from starting quarterback to second-string. The second wind is a direct response to his protest. As fans and supporters saw him catch heat for opting to sit out during the National Anthem, they decided to support by putting their money behind Kaepernick and buy his jersey.
The hate tweets might talk, but the green dollar speaks louder.
