-- Tom Brady corrected himself on Instagram on Monday after leaving an awkward comment on Randy Moss’ Instagram post paying tribute to a trainer who passed away.

A post shared by Randygmoss (@randygmoss) on

“On behalf of all the Purple People Eaters & true Viking fans worldwide........"thank u mr.fred zamberletti!"#skol#rip#oltimer,” Moss captioned the photo.

To which Brady commented, “You look better in a pats uniform.”

Brady then realized what the post was about and deleted the comment. He replaced it with, “Rip” and a prayer hands emoji.

Fred Zamberletti, the longtime Minnesota Vikings trainer, passed away on Sunday.

-- Colin Kaepernick has been named the face of Nike’s 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign and some people are not thrilled.

In response, many are boycotting Nike and destroying their products from the company.

While many others made fun of the #burnyourNikes movement.

Kaepernick’s new contract with Nike is reportedly a "wide endorsement” and the former 49ers quarterback, who is currently a free agent, will have his own branded line of shoes, shirts, jerseys and more.

Last week, Kaepernick filed for a trademark for the phrase “I’m with Kap” to print on merchandise.
