To add more fuel to the fire, Kaepernick dropped the new Nike ad set to appear during the NFL season kick off that happens tonight on NBC Charlotte (WCNC) with the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles playing.
Even though the Carolina Panthers aren’t set to play until this Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, Quarterback Cam Newton and wide receiver Devin Funchess shared their opinion about the campaign,
“We’re all entitled to our own opinion. We all have freedom of speech and can believe in any and everything we wanna believe in. From man to man, I respect the hell out of him, and that’s pretty much all I got to say,” Newton explained.
“I’ve seen Colin Kaepernick; I thought his message was in the right direction. I mean, he did lose his job and he stood for something he wanted to stand for,” said Funchess.
