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.

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.”

“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.’
