Just a little more than a week ago, some people were burning Colin Kaepernick jerseys. Now, they're flying off the shelves.
The San Francisco 49ers website sold more of their polarizing backup quarterback's jerseys last week than in the previous eight months combined, according to an ESPN report.

More power to Kaepernick for taking a stand against social injustice
On Monday, only Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott and New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. were outselling Kaepernick on the NFL's site.
Kaepernick revealed after the Niners' third preseason game that he had not stood for the pre-game playing of the national anthem this preseason and planned to continue his protest until he was satisfied social issues in the country, particularly involving police brutality, had improved. Kaepernick took a knee during The Star-Spangled Banner during San Francisco's final exhibition outing in San Diego last week.
