Kap occupies center stage from sideline
COLIN KAEPERNICK hasn’t played an NFL game in nearly two years, but the quarterback picked up a big honor Monday for his accomplishments off the field.
The former San Francisco 49er (right) was named GQ’s Citizen of the Year for becoming a “powerful symbol of activism and resistance,” according to the magazine. His refusal to stand during the national anthem — a silent protest against police brutality — became a national movement against racism and oppression.
Also receiving people of the year honors — and their own GQ covers — were “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot, Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant and “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert.
