    PROVIDENCE Nick Bosa 49ers Jersey , R.I. (AP) — as voted to ask its departments to refrain from purchasing Nike products, one of a handful of local governments or agencies that have called for boycotts in recent weeks.The North Smithfield Town Council passed the resolution on a 3-2 vote Monday evening, Council President John Beauregard said. The resolution is nonbinding.Beauregard, a former state trooper, is upset with Nike’s decision to use former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in an ad campaign. The town’s administrator didn’t know of any specific Nike products that municipal departments are currently using.The American Civil Liberties Union of Rhode Island said the town could be held legally and financially liable for violating the First Amendment and told members of the council: “Just don’t do it.”The mayor of a New Orleans suburb recently rescinded a similar directive based on an attorney’s advice.Kenner Mayor Ben Zahn, a Republican, had issued a memo saying that Nike products could not be purchased for use at city recreation facilities. It also required the parks and recreation director to approve all athletic purchases by booster clubs using the facilities. The order prompted a protest that included three members of the NFL’s New Orleans Saints and hundreds of others.And Mississippi’s public safety chief said over the weekend that state police would no longer buy Nike products, saying that Nike doesn’t support law enforcement and the military. It wasn’t immediately clear how much gear the state police agency buys from Nike, though the department has bought shoes, shirts and tactical training uniforms from the company. Republican Gov. Phil Bryant lauded the decision.A Nike spokesman said Monday he couldn’t comment on the various governmental actions.Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 to protest police brutality and social injustice.Beauregard said he proposed taking a stance in North Smithfield because he feels Kaepernick has been disrespectful toward police. He said it’s not about kneeling during the anthem.In a statement released after the vote http://www.49erscheapstore.com/nick-bosa-jersey-cheap , the ACLU of Rhode Island described the resolution’s passage over the objects of residents who opposed it as “shameful.”“By attacking the right to peacefully protest and refusing to recognize the racial injustice prompting it, the resolution shows a disdain for both freedom and equality,” the statement said. “Rhode Island is better than this.” The 49ers are going to be moving him around, but"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections 49ers Salary CapLevi’s Stadium Events49ers Transactions49ers Injury News49ers Press Conferences & Conference CallsSan Francisco 49ers NewsJalen Hurd is open to play anywhereNew,74commentsThe 49ers are going to be moving him around, butPDTShareTweetShareShareJalen Hurd is open to play anywhereThere’s been some chatter about what the San Francisco 49ers plan to do with their third round pick, Baylor wide receiver Jalen Hurd. Hurd knows he can create mismatches and knows the 49ers love lining players up all over the field. The question is what exactly is the plan for him? “I can do a lot,” Hurd said when speaking to the media at 49ers rookie minicamp on Friday. “That’s not really my position right now to guess and see where I’m going to play or what. So I’m just gonna go in there, work hard, and see where I end up.” Doing a lot might be a bit of an understatement. Hurd’s football career began as a running back before transferring out of the University of Tennessee and going to Baylor whilst switching to wide receiver. Hurd has the tape to show a wide receiver with the traits of a running back. “I put on tape Nick Mullens Color Rush Jersey ,” Hurd said. “I’ve been in the slot, I can play on the outside, obviously I have a running back background, so there’s really not any limit to me on the offensive side of the ball I would say.”The big question going into the 49ers training camp will be just what Hurd’s position is. Kyle Shanahan has indicated they can do a lot with Hurd given his background and versatility, but there’s no hard confirmation that Hurd will be spending the majority of his time in the tight end room with George Kittle and fellow rookie Kaden Smith. If set at tight end, Hurd could also be used in the vein of how NFL tight end Jimmy Graham has been used. Or the 49ers add him to what is becoming a very deep receiving corps. And while he knows it’s not his place to dictate where he’ll play or what his plan is as a weapon for the 49ers, Hurd is open to play anywhere. He does have a preference:“I want to play receiver.”
