Blake Griffin has Kia, but he’s no match for Colin Kaepernick’s Jaguar.
The 49ers’ star quarterback has signed an endorsement deal with the British car manufacturer, according to multiple reports.
He also represents Mogo Sport and MusclePharm, but Jaguar will become his most famous endorsement.
Earlier this week, Kaepernick was named as one of the top 100 players in the NFL.
“Probably think the most talented player right now is Colin Kaepernick,” said Houston Texans tight end Owen Daniels. “A few guys have special ability to do that, going back to Michael Vick, Randall Cunningham, now you’ve got Colin Kaepernick. His game is awesome.”
Kaepernick’s dynamic style of play was a far cry from the standard offense run by Alex Smith, who would wind up in Kansas City via a trade in the offseason.
As we all probably know by now, he was thrust into the spotlight after Smith’s injury, taking over a team with Super Bowl aspirations.
Under Kaepernick, those aspirations would come true. He set all kinds of records against Green Bay in the Divisional Round, picking their defense apart. Then, Kaepernick led the 49ers on a dramatic victory past Atlanta in the NFC Championship Game, and nearly did it again in the Super Bowl, coming up just short against Baltimore.
Bottom line: it is safe to say that Kaepernick will be contacted by many more companies in hopes of landing the budding star to represent them.
