The American football player has not been offered a contract to play since sparking a wave of protests in the U.S. against racial injustice.

Wide receiver Julian Edelman, who was named Super Bowl MVP, posted a photo of himself hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy as red and blue confetti fell around him.

Beyond the game and the clunker of a halftime show, there was far greater drama in the suspicious vandalism of a mural of Colin Kaepernick which was located in the shadow of Atlanta's Super Bowl stadium. She told the Associated Press: "My husband, he loves football".

"I was a super fan, and have so many friends in the league, but I just can't support a product that has done this".

Kaepernick is a former starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers and led the team to a Super Bowl appearance in 2013 - the organisation's first in 19 years.

Cardi B hopes the protests supporting Kaepernick can create positive change in the world, but she's not sure if that will happen anytime soon. To watch the game is the compromise my beliefs.

"There is no other way to say it, but I got out coached", the 33-year-old McVay said.




LeBron James and Kevin Durant both offered their support for Colin Kaepernick by wearing his limited edition #ImWithKap jerseys. "I'm changing the things I can not accept.' Dr. Angela Davis", Common tweeted, as well as posting two photos of himself with Davis, who wore a Kaepernick jersey personalized with the #ImWithKap tag.

'I grew up in different ethnicities of minorities so I, I sympathise with everybody you know?'

On Sunday, several celebrities posted pictures on social media wearing Kaepernick's number 7 jersey.

Hours later, Rihanna reiterated her support for Kaepernick - a former National Football League player - by sharing an illustrated drawing of the sportsman.

#ImWithKap and have been all season. @ava said it best!

I write. I create. Will probably start reading this book...
