NFL quarterback and civil rights activist Colin Kaepernick is officially rejoining the Madden roster for the first time since 2017, according to an announcement from EA. Kaepernick is available to sign as a free agent in Madden 21 right now.
The quarterback has been an NFL free agent since the end of the 2016 season, after drawing attention for kneeling during the national anthem as a protest against police brutality. He’s since been kept out of the NFL despite his excellent track record, likely for the aforementioned political activism.
