The Colin Kaepernick-led San Francisco 49ers once denied the Atlanta Falcons a Super Bowl berth in a tight NFC Championship game nearly five years ago, but the polarizing quarterback’s social justice movement has inspired an interesting mural in Atlanta.

A well-designed piece of graffiti now depicts Kaepernick wearing a Falcons jersey. Props to the helmet design, in particular. Very well done.

After six seasons with the 49ers, Kaepernick remains unsigned and will enter his sixth month of free agency in September.
