Russell Wilson Shows There Is a Time and Place to Bust Out Some 'Kaepernicking'

Seattle Seahawks fans might cringe when they hear their star quarterback decided to kiss his bicep in a fit of Kaepernicking, but they should know it was all done in the name of brilliant trash talk. 

Nate Scott of For the Win spotted a rather odd image on Instagram: one that showed Russell Wilson performing a pose made famous by the 49ers star QB, Colin Kaepernick. 

First, here is an image posted to Kaepernick's Instagram feed, showing Wilson smooching that right arm of his. The captions reads, "Look at @dangerusswilson trying to steal my swag! #GoldenStateofMind #BayAllDay."

Now, before you Seattle faithful give your guy a hard time, we have to note that he is simply showing up Kaepernick after scoring on him during a rousing game of Madden. 

Wilson posted the same image to his account with a caption that reads, "And yes that was after a TD throw on @kaepernick7 during our #madden25 commercial! @eamaddennfl."

It seems we will get to see how the play unfolds in an upcoming commercial featuring the two stars who broke out with wonderful seasons last year. 

Lunarscape Pictures posted this image of the two in what seems to be another room. I would also like to note that Wilson takes his Madden seriously, because he decided the occasion needed some eye black. 

While this was much ado about little, there is cause for some fans to think the worst when they see their sports star performing a rival's pose. 

You might recall Kaepernick received some heat for deciding to wear a Miami Dolphins hat recently—a moment that caused the QB to post a picture on Instagram to answer his critics: 

This the hat y'all mad at? I'm goin wear what I want regardless of what you think, all you need to worry about is the fact that I grind for my teammates and the 49ers! I plan on doin this until they won't let me in the building! #ridiculous#y'allmustbebored

San Francisco fans can rest easy, because it looks like Kaepernick makes it out of this commercial without having to don any enemy colors. 

Even if there is some clever turn in the commercial that demands he do something like wear a Seahawks jersey, he will more than likely make up for it the moment he steps on the field next season. 

This is the same guy who helped his team to the Super Bowl after all. Perhaps it's time to cut him some slack.
