perez-kaepernickWord on the street is that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was seen getting “cozy” and “comfortable” with openly gay circuit DJ Luis Perez at the Sports Illustrated Super Bowl party last weekend. Another gay false alarm, or secret gay power couple to watch?

Pictures of the handsome pair together sparked rumors after Perez posted them to his Facebook page (here and here), only to be mysteriously taken down and tucked away within a matter of hours. Maybe the photos were unflattering? Maybe their love is nothing more than a bromance? Maybe Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black were just friends having coffee together, right?

Kaepernick famously dumped his girlfriend as soon as he landed a contract with the NFL in 2012 and has undergone a stylish makeover as of late, recently being named the “most stylish man in the NFL” by GQ. Some have credited his dapper transformation as being a tool for securing a new contract with the 49ers, while others suggest it’s the touch of a more stylish influence in his life.

Is Colin Kaepernick even gay, or just another straight man with designer pocket squares and turtlenecks?

Before you form an opinion, you obviously must see Kaepernick’s naked spread in ESPN’s 2013 Body Issue:
