(Gray News) – EA Sports has announced quarterback Colin Kaepernick will be a free agent player in Madden NFL 21.
The quarterback hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2016 season when he gained attention for his national anthem protests. Kaepernick would kneel during the national anthem to bring awareness toward police brutality and racial injustice.
“Colin Kaepernick is one of the top free agents in football and a starting-caliber quarterback,” EA Sports said in a statement on Twitter. “The team at EA Sports, along with millions of Madden NFL fans, want to see him back in our game.”
