Nike Air 180 Shop Online . -- Colin Kaepernick survived San Franciscos roster cuts on Saturday when the 49ers determined that his ability as a quarterback more than offset any potential distraction over his refusal to stand during the national anthem.Coach Chip Kelly announced that Kaepernick will start the season as the backup to Blaine Gabbert with Christian Ponder as the third-stringer. Kelly had telegraphed that move to keep Kaepernick earlier in the week when he called him one of his teams two best quarterbacks.Kaepernicks status on the team was briefly in question after his anthem protest over racial oppression and police brutality in the United States became public last weekend. But the Niners determined his ability as a player outweighed any potential distraction.When hes here, hes all about football and all about work, Kelly said. Thats what Ive seen since weve been here. He continues to display that every day hes been in this building.In other moves, the Niners acquired receiver Rod Streater and an undisclosed draft pick from Kansas City for an undisclosed draft pick and traded safety L.J. McCray to Seattle for an undisclosed draft pick. Both deals are pending physicals.The Niners also waived receiver DeAndre Smelter with an injury, placed linebacker Aaron Lynch on the suspended list for four games for violating league rules on substance abuse and released 20 players.But the biggest focus was at quarterback, where San Francisco released Jeff Driskel but kept Kaepernick and Ponder.Kaepernick refused to stand for the national anthem on Aug. 26 against Green Bay and was outspoken in his reasoning, saying he would continue standing up for people who were oppressed until he saw significant change.Kaepernick once again protested the anthem on Thursday night in San Diego, but kneeled alongside teammate Eric Reid, instead of sitting, in a move meant to show more respect to veterans.Kaepernicks performance had plummeted in recent years after he led San Francisco to the Super Bowl following the 2012 season and the NFC title game the following year.He eventually lost his starting job to Gabbert midway through last season and had done little to show he should win it back this year. He was slowed in the offseason after undergoing operations on his non-throwing shoulder, right thumb and left knee and did not get any practice time.He returned to the practice field at the start of training camp in late July but then missed about two weeks with a tired right shoulder but wasnt able to win the job back.He knows he still has work to do, Kelly said. Hes not up to his playing weight that he was when he was successful here and hell continue to work on that. He missed a couple of weeks there with the arm and that set him back a little bit in terms of his ability to compete for it.After struggling in his return against the Packers and causing a media maelstrom with his protest, some raised questions about whether he was worth keeping around.Adding to that was the fact that 49ers would be on the hook for his $14.5 million base salary in 2017 if Kaepernick gets hurt this season and is not fully recovered by April 1. Kaepernicks $11.9 million salary for this season became guaranteed when he was on the roster in April. The Niners had discussions with Denver about a possible trade in the offseason and Kaepernick even met with Broncos general manager John Elway. But hangups over Kaepernicks salary contributed to the deal falling apart.Kaepernicks teammates supported his protest and Reid even joined in. Kaepernick said after Thursday nights game that he loved America and wants to make the country a better place. He also said he intends to donate $1 million to different organizations to help these communities and help these people, declining to provide specifics.The other players cut by the Niners were receivers Dres Anderson, Devon Cajuste, Bryce Treggs, Ryan Whalen and DeAndrew White; offensive linemen Alex Balducci, Fahn Cooper, Colin Kelly and Norman Price; defensive linemen Demetrius Cherry, B.J. McBryde and Garrison Smith; linebackers Corey Lemonier, Marcus Rush and Shayne Skov; running backs DuJuan Harris and Kelvin Taylor; tight end JeRon Hamm; and cornerback Prince Charles Iworah.---Online:AP NFL website: and Air Max 270 Nere .

Laudrup revealed Thursday he was notified of his dismissal in "the briefest of letters which gave no reasons why such hasty and final action was deemed necessary. . -- New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis is retiring after a 16-year career to become the goalie coach for the Los Angeles Galaxy. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Australia always had the belief, and have now convinced the mighty United States they can win a historic Olympic mens basketball medal in Rio.The Boomers nearly became the first team to knock off the world No.1 side at a Games since 2004 on Wednesday night (Thursday morning AEDT).Thats if it wasnt for Carmelo Anthony and his record 31 points.A masterclass late in the fourth quarter from the Americans most experienced player turned a two-point deficit into a scarily close 98-88 victory for the U.S. - their 18th straight at an Olympics.While the United States put China and Venezuela away with ease, Andrew Bogut, Patty Mills and Matthew Dellavedova made them work hard for the win.The Australians, who earlier toppled top-six nations France and Serbia, led for large periods of the game and did not trail by more than eight points until the dying seconds.Mills finished with 30 points and Bogut added 15 points, while Dellavedova had 11 points plus 11 assists and six rebounds.That was the first real international game weve had, U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski said.Australia have probably played the best of anybody in the Olympics.They just play lights-out basketball.Theyre going to vie for a gold medal.Winning gold - not just a maiden medal - was a goal they set after quaalifying for the Rio Games last year. Air Max 90 Scontate. .I know many have laughed at us along the way, but perhaps tonights performance will help some others believe it, Boomers coach Andrej Lemanis said.Kevin Durant believes it, predicting Australia will go pretty far this tournament after what he came up against.But Bogut, despite being surprised by his own performance in just his third game back from a knee injury, wasnt all smiles.Were disappointed, he said.We lost. Were not going to take small moral victories.Theyre the best team in the world, we battled them and we thought we shouldve been in a position to try and grind out a closer game.In the past, you get within 10 or 15 and you get a birthday cake in the locker-room and everyone thinks its the best day ever.We have a different mindset this Olympics and hopefully we can keep that grit and determination.Having been drawn in the same group for Rio, the two teams wont be able to meet again until the gold medal match should they finish in the top two.The Boomers next play China, while the U.S. face Serbia.Anthony overtook LeBron James as the Americans alltime leading scorer midway through the match.
