Nike is selling a new Colin Kaepernick jersey now that the controversial former quarterback has settled his grievance with the National Football League.

The sports apparel company is offering the black jersey for $150. It has Kaepernick's former No. 7 on the front and back, while his last name is emblazoned across the back.

"The Kaepernick Icon Jersey is a celebration of those who seek truth in their communities, and those who remain true to themselves," the product description reads. "Built with Dri-FIT technology, the jersey is made to keep you dry and comfortable wherever you go."

Kaepernick gained notoriety for taking a knee during the pregame playing of the National Anthem in 2016. He became a free agent at the start of the next season, but no team has opted to sign him to a contract.

Kaepernick and Eric Reid settled with the NFL last week after they claimed the league blackballed them for their National Anthem protests.

"We believe Colin Kaepernick is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward," Nike's Sandra Carreon-John told USA Today. "The jersey marks Nike's continued product collaboration with Colin, and will be available for a limited time on Nike.com and the Nike App."

Kaepernick's protests were over perceived injustices of minorities, particularly those killed in police shootings.
