Kevin Livingston, president of nonprofit organization 100 Suits for 100 Men, will organize a demonstration showing support for free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick Wednesday at NFL headquarters in New York City, ESPN.com's Michael Rothstein reported.

Kaepernick's adviser, Harry Edwards, told USA Today's Jarrett Bell that three teams had inquired about Kaepernick after the free-agency period began March 9. Yet, the six-year veteran is no closer to finding a new home.
