Colin Kaepernick is staying poised, and he got a big endorsement from his NFL colleagues in a Nike ad posted to social media Monday, as he continues to hope for a comeback despite not throwing a pass in a game for six years.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback tweeted, «Staying vigilant,» and included video of himself throwing to various targets, including New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Ceedee Lamb, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle, Tennessee running back Titans Derrick Henry and New Orleans Saints wide receiver Chris Olave.

«Man, it looks great,» Bourne said. «He looks good. His arm looks strong. He’s got an arm like a rocket. Look at that man. He’s got another good six years left.»
«I still got it for him,» Lamb added.
The video appeared to have been recorded at Nike’s headquarters in Oregon. Kaepernick doesn’t speak in the video, but his logo appears at the end of the clip.
All of the players in the video are Nike endorsed athletes. It was not clear if the athletes were paid to participate or if it was part of their contract. Nike did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.
Kaepernick has not played since the 2016 season. His last appearance was on January 1, 2017 against the Seattle Seahawks. He finished the year with 2,241 passing yards, 16 touchdown passes and four interceptions. The 49ers went 1-10 in Kaepernick’s 11 starts.

Since then, Kaepernick has been at the forefront of social activism, calling for the abolition of police and prisons and comparing the NFL Draft to a slave auction. He accused NFL owners of excluding him from the league, and after the two sides settled, both tests of him in front of scouts failed to land a team contract.
He also told NPR in May that he hasn’t seen any «substantive change» in the NFL when it comes to the league addressing social injustice.
He told Sports Illustrated last month that he was going to keep looking for a return to the NFL.
