Colin Kaepernick is wearing the pink Beats by Dre with tape covering the logo. He was fined $10K last week. He is appealing.
Colin Kaepernick learned his lesson from the NFL about the seriousness of wearing the wrong headphones. Now he's being a little crafty about skirting around the league's branding rules. The 49ers quarterback has his own endorsement deal with Beats, while Bose is the official headphone provider of the NFL.
Who knows if covering the logo with tape will be enough to avoid a fine, but we appreciate the creativity.
It's been a weird week for NFL branding and it's only Tuesday. Just Monday, Jay Cutler was caught calling the Microsoft Surface tablet a "knockoff iPad."
