Colin Kaepernick's bid to resume his professional football career received a major vote of confidence Monday.

Adidas North America president Mark King said the apparel giant would sign Kaepernick to an endorsement deal if an NFL team offers him a contract.

"If he signs on a team, we would definitely want to sign him," King said via Greg Moore of The Arizona Republic during an appearance at Arizona State's Global Sports Summit.

The quarterback has been a free agent since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March 2017, when it became apparent the team wouldn't keep him in its long-term plans.

"We love athletes that have a platform to make the world a better place," King said. "If they’re an activist in a way that brings attention to something that moves the world forward, even if there's controversy at that moment, we're really interested in those athletes because I think it represents the world today."
