Kaepernick aims to trademark "I'm With Kap" for clothing line.
Colin Kaepernick has reportedly filed an application to trademark his signature "I'm With Kap" slogan, which has been used on a number of t-shirts worn by multiple NFL players and celebrities, including Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills, G-Eazy and others. According to TMZ Sports, the former San Francisco 49ers QB recently filed paperwork in California to own the slogan for use on shirts, hoodies, caps and other apparel.
Despite being out of the NFL since he became a free agent after the 2016 season, Kaepernick has continued his generous donations, including a $1 million pledge to various charities and non-profit organizations, such as his "Know Your Rights" campaign. Given the fact that Kaepernick has used his status to promote social equality and reform, it is expected that portions of the "I'm With Kap" clothing sales will go right back into the communities that he is fighting for.
Kaepernick has already teased some of the gear that could be releasing once he secures the trademark, including an "I'm With Kap" football jersey as modeled by his girlfriend, Hot 97 host, Nessa.
