Who could have imagined that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick could have gone from clipboard holder to star in the matter of six weeks and a Super Bowl run.

Alex Smith got knocked out of a week 10 matchup, and the rest is history. Kaepernick is now the talk of football, and ad campaigns have taken notice.

Kaepernick according to CSN Bay Area now has an endorsement deal with Jaguar. The quarterback received a brand new maroon convertible that has a $92,000 price tag, 495 horsepower and has a top speed of 186 mph.

Kaepernick as only he could, celebrated by “Kaepernicking” in front of his new vehicle.

  • SWEET!
  • It is wrong that all these ball players get piad so much, when someone in the military is fighting half way around the world with a pay so low a lot of them quailify for food stamps. They can't even get that because of being in the military. Where in the hell are our priorties.
  • Our country has had the priorities wrong for years, & it just keep getting worse! Our soldiers deserve a lot more than just "Thanks for your service"! They deserve to be paid better than poverty level! They deserve to come home & protect our country instead of everyone else!!
  • I'm a 49ers fan, but this disgust me! Pampered, and over paid idiots.
  • I'll second that! I have loved the 9ers forever, but Kaepernick makes me sick.
  • I would wonder why Colin makes you sick, especially as a Niner fan, as a person Colin is a class act and as an athlete he is exceptional. Whats the issue ? the tats ? and pampered and overpaid ? ahh duh thats what society has created don't hate the person or at least not one like Colin Kaepernick, save it for the likes of Josh Hamilton or Floyd Maywether
  • Why so mad? Many would ask for a lot more for an endorsement. If i could get a nice car just for taking a picture with it then i would. I think it is just fine to take an offer that is given. If there is any problem it is in the system that allows it, not the person that benefits from it.
  • If someone offered me a Jag because of my job I would take it and so would all of you
  • I still think hes Smellin his ARMPIT!
  • Kiss the Arm of Faith. I love it.
  • he needs more money for some more tatoo's
