‘I Don’t Know If He’s Being Blackballed’

Nike has put their money behind Colin Kaepernick — and now the man who founded the company tells TMZ SportsÔĽŅ, he believes the QB should still be playing in the NFL.¬†
We saw shoe legend, Phil Knight leaving Michael’s restaurant in New York the other day and while he threw his support behind Colin — he stopped short when we asked if he believed CK is being blackballed by the NFL.¬†
“I don’t know,” Knight told us … “I don’t know.”

80-year-old Knight still serves as Chairman Emeritus for the Swoosh — the company that recently inked Kaepernick as the face of its “Just Do It” 30th Anniversary Campaign.¬†
After the first Kaepernick ad dropped back in September, the brand reportedly saw a 31% boost in online sales … so, ya gotta think Phil would be pumped about bringing Kaep back into the fold.¬†
One more thing … what kind of shoes does the $30 BILLION Nike founder rock out in public?¬†
Phil says they’re special “PK 80s” — a special line of shoes created to honor Phil’s 80th birthday. We’re having a tough time finding the exact model and value of the shoes … but we’re working on it.¬†
