Nike ran a separate ad, a commercial that featured other prominent athletes and was narrated by Kaepernick, during Thursday night's first National Football League game of the 2018 season between the Eagles and Falcons.

'I honor the flag. "In another way, it is what this country is all about, that you have certain freedoms to do things that other people think you shouldn't do, but I personally am on a different side of it".
