Colin Kaepernick's decision to kneel during the national anthem was far from unanimous: many people thought he was brave, while a bunch of others said his actions were disrespectful. But still, this controversy did not stop the veteran quarterback's jersey and shoes to get a place in the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
According to Niners Nation, "49ers psychologist and noted sociologist Dr. Harry Edwards sent along some items of Colin Kaepernick's to put on display." It might, however, take up to two years for the items to actually be featured in the museum.
In an interview with USA Today, Edwards added that Kaepernick's items "should be put right there alongside Muhammad Ali. He's this generation's Ali."
Kaepernick has yet to find an agreement with a new team, but the Seattle Seahawks are reportedly interested in signing him.
