Free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick was announced Monday as one of 10 candidates for TIME's Person of the Year for 2017.

TIME's first selection was Charles Lindbergh, the first person to make a solo non-stop flight across the Atlantic.

Time magazine has announced its shortlist for its Person of the Year. Wonder Woman Director Patty Jenkins broke box office records as Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman took the world by storm. Trump has also proposed ending DACA, a programme that gives legal status to "Dreamers", undocumented immigrants that have been in the US since they were children.

Kaepernick has been a lightning rod in the NFL as his decision to kneel before the playing of the national anthem in protesting racial inequality and police brutality last season brought a wave of followers and criticism.
