I don't pretend to be able to channel Colin Kaepernick's thoughts, but I have a real problem trying to picture deciding to "just trigger conservatives". What's in it for him?

1. Trigger conservatives
2. ...
3. Profit?

I mean, the motivation for asking the questions seems to be that it didn't work out, so Kaepernick is supposed to have known both that it wouldn't solve police brutality and that he'd get a sponsorship deal without having to play?

That just seems so much less likely to me than a man who wanted to use the platform available to him to bring more attention to something he though wasn't getting enough attention.
