Posted November 20, 2018 09:18:49The NFL will launch a new ad featuring former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in its next commercial.
The new commercial will debut on Thursday, November 20 and will feature the quarterback and 49ers legend Kaepernick speaking about social injustice and his passion for playing in the NFL.
It also will feature former 49er players Aldon Smith and Deion Sanders, former Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch and former 49-0 New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Anthony Davis, according to a release.
Kaepernick has come under fire for his comments about the Black Lives Matter movement, his decision to sit out the 2017 NFL season due to his ongoing battle with mental health, and his recent criticism of NFL players who protest during the national anthem.
The commercial will also include clips from past NFL commercials.
