TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Colin Kaepernick is returning to the spotlight.

On the 30th anniversary of their "Just Do It" campaign, Nike announced that Kaepernick, the former NFL player and activist, will be the new face of the Nike brand.

Kaepernick tweeted "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything" on Monday, announcing his involvement.

Despite his league-wide influence on the national anthem protests in the NFL, Kaepernick has not played for a team since 2016.
