Colin Kaepernick on SI Cover with Russell Wilson

Posted Aug 27, 2014

The magazine's annual NFL preview covers the impressive grouping of star quarterbacks in the NFC. Each signal-caller is depicted without a jersey on. Kaepernick and Wilson, the NFC West rivals, represent for the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.


Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson grace one of four Sports Illustrated regional covers this week.

The magazine's annual NFL preview covers the impressive grouping of star quarterbacks in the NFC. Each signal-caller is depicted without a jersey on. Kaepernick and Wilson, the NFC West rivals, represent for the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.

Kaepernick's story, written by SI's Michael Rosenberg, appears to touch on his public reputaton based on the sneak preview SI shared online.

“I feel like I’m a good dude, and I’m a cool person to be around, but I am not that damn cool," Kaepernick told Rosenberg. “As much as I’d like to think, This is great, everybody loves me, I just don’t buy that. It was never like that before.”

This is not the first time Kaepernick and Wilson shared the spotlight in a high-profile public forum. The two quarterbacks were featuered in a 2013 EA Madden NFL commercial.

The SI cover is also Kaepernick's third cover on a major national magazine. He was featured on SI's NFL preview cover in '13 and on a GQ cover.

Now that you've seen Kap and Wilson on the cover, here's a look at the other SI covers with two NFC quarterbacks from each division:
