A charity Colin Kaepernick has worked with is organizing a show of support for the unemployed quarterback Wednesday at the NFL headquarters in New York.

Kevin Livingston, president of 100 Suits for 100 Men, clarifies the event should not be characterized as a protest against the fact Kaepernick remains without a team. Some believe Kaepernick has not been signed because he knelt during the national anthem before 49ers games in protest of what he deems the oppression of black people in this country.

“We’re not protesting. This is not anti-NFL. This is not going against the police,” Livingston told ESPN.com. “What we’re doing exactly is we’re showing solidarity to the league on behalf of Colin Kaepernick. This is nothing planned by him. This is all me.”

I feel like it’s bigger than what he did, it’s bigger than football. … He’s a good quarterback. You go back and look at the numbers; he had a pretty good season for the games he played. So he’ll be signed.”

Harold said he draws that confidence from his regular contact with Kaepernick, who himself remains confident he’ll sign somewhere.

“His spirits are very high,” Harold said. “We talked. I told him good luck with everything. That’s when he told me he will be signed. So I said, ‘Yeah, I have faith in you. You proved yourself last year.’

“I feel like a lot of guys that would have been in his shoes last year, not having the [starting] job Cheap Jerseys Stitched on day one and then just thrown in there when we were getting blown out, a lot of guys would have reacted negatively to that. He stayed positive about the whole situation. I mean, getting hate mail, getting death threats, I mean he showed some true courage. He never broke. So what more can you ask for in a Cheap Jerseys Rugby guy? He’s shown he can thrive under high, high, high pressure.”
