It named the former San Fransisco 49ers quarterback their first "citizens of the year" on Monday.

Although a better quarterback than many of his peers, no National Football League team has signed him.

Back in August, NFL Hall of Famer Jim Brown let it be known he wasn't a fan of Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the U.S. National Anthem.

The player didn't give an interview to the magazine, but "remained silent" and posed for photographs.

"It cost him his job".

"But Colin also made it clear to us that he meant to remain silent".

In taking a knee, Kaepernick took a stand and inspired a movement that has reverberated around the world, and that's why GQ named Kaepernick its Citizen of the Year.

The GQ photographer chose to take pictures of Kaepernick in Harlem, New York City, where Ali visited frequently, "among the men, women, and children he is fighting for.to connect him to a crusade that stretches back decades". As of today, he remains unsigned and has filed a complaint against team owners; he says they colluded against him because of the protests - aimed at police brutality against African-Americans and other issues. Apart from his perfectly poised coils, Kaepernick also wears a simple black leather jacket and turtle neck that serve as a powerful backdrop for the GQ logo highlighted in unifying colors of red, white and blue. He linked his inability to find a new club with the protests he displayed previous year.
