GQ Magazine has named free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick 2017’s 'Citizen of the Year.'

The political standing quarterback is featured on the upcoming GQ issue, which is part of their annual ‘Men of the Year’ issue, featureing other leading celebs in entertainment, including Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant and late night host Stephen Colbert.

Taking a stance and continuing his protest of current injustices, the football star remained 'silent' for the interview questions, so GQ asked others to comment on Kaepernic’s story and his impact on society.

Rapper J. Cole was amongst the voices in support of Colin, saying:

Had (kaepernick not taken a knee), this guy would be making millions of dollars right now. Period, point blank. And more important than the money, he was living his dream. He sacrified his dream.

The GQ feature uses New York as the backdrop and highlisghts Kaep’s influence on the culture and youth.
