LOS ANGELES (AP) — Madden NFL players will have the opportunity to see how Colin Kaepernick might fare if he was back on the field.

EA Sports has announced that the company has partnered with Kaepernick and is including him in the latest version of Madden 21.

Fans can sign Kaepernick as a free agent in franchise mode and put him at the helm of any NFL team, as well as including him on any team in the play now mode.

The 32-year-old quarterback hasn't been offered a contract since he last played for the San Francisco 49ers in 2016, the same year he began kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.
