SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick thumbed his nose at authority following Sunday's victory by wearing Beats by Dre headphones around his neck after the NFL signed an exclusive agreement with Bose.
And while his headphones were bright pink, purportedly to pay homage to Breast Cancer Awareness, Kaepernick paid for the indiscretion. He said Thursday the league fined him $10,000.
So did Beats, with whom he has an endorsement deal, pay his fine?
"I'm going to let that be unanswered," Kaepernick said.
Here's a picture of Kaepernick wearing those pink Beats by Dre headphones Sunday:
