FColin Rand Kaepernick used to be a quarterback for the National Football League. The San Francisco 49ers picked him with the 36th pick in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He started out as a backup quarterback, but when Alex Smith got hurt and couldn’t play, Kaepernick took over as the starting quarterback for the next few seasons. Even though he only played in the NFL for a short time, he holds the record for the most rushing yards by a quarterback in a single game (181) and in a single postseason (246 yards).
Colin Kaepernick, who used to play quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, has had a big impact both on and off the field. He got a lot of attention when, in August 2016, he took a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality and systemic racism. This happened when the 49ers and the Green Bay Packers played a preseason game. Since then, he has become an activist for civil rights, started a family, and is trying to get back into the NFL. In this article, we’ll talk about Colin’s personal life including his wife.
