Colin Kaepernick’s jersey may not appear on an NFL field again. But it will soon be displayed in the Smithsonian.

Thanks to a donation late last year from sociologist Harry Edwards, the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C. acquired the jersey Kaepernick wore in 2016 while he was protesting the national anthem. The museum’s curator of sports, Damion Thomas, told USA Today last week the piece of memorabilia will be showcased within the next one or two years.

Edwards, who organized the Olympic Project for Human Rights, explained why he thinks Kaepernick needs to be recognized in the museum as soon as possible.

“I said, ‘Don’t wait 50 years to try to get some memorabilia and so forth on Kaepernick,'” he said. “”‘Let me give you a game jersey, some shoes, a picture … And it should be put right there alongside Muhammad Ali. He’s this generation’s Ali.'”

Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the national anthem last season to protest police brutality in African American neighborhoods started a nationwide movement, with high school players joining as well. He remains a free agent, leading some to ask whether he’s been blackballed from the league due to his social activism. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said recently he was open to bringing Kaepernick aboard, but there hasn’t been any reported progress on contract negotiations.

Since speaking out about police violence, Kaepernick has involved himself in a litany of social projects. This offseason, he’s helped deliver food and water to famine-ravaged Somalia and brought his “Know Your Rights” camp to Chicago, in which more than 200 students attended workshops on financial literacy, college preparation and interacting with law enforcement.

The 29-year-old quarterback recently purchase an apartment in Manhattan, where he handed out free suits outside of a parole office earlier this month.

AROUND THE WEB:

— David Ortiz stole the show at Boston University’s graduation on Sunday and all he said was “Thank you very much.”

Ortiz received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letter from the university in front of more than 20,000 people at Nickerson Field.

BU president Dr. Robert A. Brown introduced Ortiz by highlighting his career stats, his leadership, charitable endeavors and speech after the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.

The crowd chanted “speech!” as Ortiz accepted his degree but Ortiz only said those four words when he took the mic and then returned to his seat.          

— After the loss to the Celtics Sunday night, LeBron James called out a Cleveland radio host for asking him about his subpar performance.

Kenny Roda asked James if it was the Celtics’ defense “or just not feeling or what?” that led to his bad game and James took issue with it.

“I was just pretty poor,” James said. “What do you want me to say? It seems like you only ask questions when we lose. It’s a weird thing with you, Kenny, you always come around when we lose, I swear.”

Roda then followed-up on what James said with these “for the record” clarification tweets:

LeBron also glanced at Roda as he left the press conference:
