Kaepernick tweeted the same image as Rovell with the words, "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything".
Kaepernick - who led the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2013 where they lost to the Ravens - was the catalyst for the ongoing protests of NFL players kneeling during the pre-game playing of the National Anthem.

A similar grievance is still pending by unsigned safety Eric Reid, who played with Kaepernick in San Francisco and joined in the protests.
