Colin Kaepernick had little to no interest from Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) programs around the nation, having an incredible record on the field. He was 6′ 5″ tall and only weighed 170 pounds in his senior year, which was one of the causes. Even Nevada, the only school to give him a football scholarship, was hesitant because they feared Kaepernick might eventually switch to baseball. Finally, Kaepernick accepted Nevada’s offer, are signed in February 2006. He was listed as one of the draftable prospects in the class of 2006 on the website of Major League Baseball.

The Chicago Cubs selected him as a college junior in the 43rd round of the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft. Still, he opted to stay in Nevada and continue playing football.

On June 4, 2014, he penned a six-year, $126 million extension to his contract with the 49ers. He was benched in favor of backup Blaine Gabbert in 2015 as the team finished the regular season with eight wins and eight losses and failed to advance to the playoffs. He had a left shoulder injury sometime in November. He had to miss the remainder of the season to recover from surgery.

He played in 12 games in 2016, recording 16 passing touchdowns and four interceptions. On August 26, 2016, Colin Kaepernick was seen on camera sitting during the US national anthem at the 49er’s third preseason game. The understated and discreet gesture attracted widespread attention.

Several of his teammates, NFL coworkers, and sportsmen from other sports joined him in the protest. In a 2016 fan survey, he was named the NFL player who NFL fans disliked the most. Additionally, he disclosed to the media that he had received death threats. He became a free agent in early 2017 after choosing to break his contract with the San Francisco 49ers.
