Colin Kapernick has signed a new deal with Nike to become the face of the “Just Do It” 30th anniversary campaign — a deal that was put together in the past couple of weeks and will pay the QB fresh cash … TMZ Sports has learned.
Colin posted the new ad that reads, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything. Just do it.” Our sources tell us Colin’s legal team — Mark Geragos and Ben Meiselas — put the deal together recently. Kaepernick has been in business with Nike before but we’re told Nike cut him a brand new check for this particular campaign.
What’s interesting is that Nike also has deals with several NFL teams. And with Colin’s collusion case getting the green light to move forward it puts the sport’s apparel giant in an precarious position.
Clearly, Colin has a strong fan base — that includes celebrities like Jay-Z, Serena Williams and Meek Mill — and Nike feels it’s worth to align its interest with someone many people feel is a warrior for social justice.
