Adidas should sign Colin Kaepernick even if he’s not in the NFL More SportsPulse: USA TODAY Sports’ Jarrett Bell spoke to his sources within Seattle’s organization and uncovers a different story of how their issues with Kaepernick unfolded. Adidas needs to tighten its laces and take the next step forward with Colin Kaepernick — or risk looking as almost disingenuous as the NFL does when the league insists the polarizing quarterback hasn’t been blackballed.

The Grizzlies were on top of the NBA in the season’s early weeks, but an eight-game losing skid and a frayed relationship with Marc Gasol cost Fizdale his job. That losing streak extended to 11 under Bickerstaff, who eventually finished with a 15-48 mark in his second interim coaching job (he went 37-34 with the Houston Rockets in 2015-16). With the team’s ownership situation cleared up, the focus now moves to finding a full-time coach.
