Colin Kaepernick Protest So Big, It Deserved Cover ... Says Time Mag

9/22/2016 11:48 AM PDT

TIME magazine says Colin Kaepernick is on the cover of their magazine 'cause the movement he sparked has gotten so huge ... and spread so far ... he was the obvious choice. 

TMZ Sports asked TIME why it tapped Kaep for the latest cover, and a spokesperson told us the goal was exploring "the nationwide debate happening around national anthem protests."

The spokesperson added, the fact his protest has now become so widespread ... "from the rest of the NFL to high schools and colleges across the country" -- meant this was just the right time for a cover story.

Translation: He's gonna be gold for sales numbers.

The issue -- which hits newsstands Friday -- features a photograph of Colin Kaepernick taking a knee. It's a shot from one of his previous on-field protests, not a photo shoot.

Colin Kaepernick I've Gotten Death Threats For Protesting Anthem

Colin Kaepernick says people have threatened to kill him for refusing to stand for the national anthem.

Kaepernick -- speaking to reporters on Tuesday at the 49ers facility -- revealed he has received numerous death threats over "a couple different avenues."

"If something like that were to happen, you've proved my point and it will be loud and clear for everyone why it happened and that would move this movement forward at a greater speed than what it is even now."

Kaep went on to say that the threats weren't totally unexpected ... "I don't want that to happen, but that's the realization of what could happen, and I knew there were other things that came along with this when I first stood up and spoke about it. That's not something I haven't thought about."

Kaepernick says he did not report the threats to team officials ... or local police.

Colin Kaepernick jersey sales have EXPLODED ... and now he's puttin' his money where his mouth is, again ... by donating 100% of the proceeds he receives from the transactions.

Kaep -- whose #7 San Francisco 49ers jersey is currently the best selling jersey in the NFL -- hit up Instagram and vowed to give every dime of his share of the profit to people in need.

"I wasn't expecting my jersey sales to jump to number one because of this, but it shows the people's belief that we can achieve justice and equality for ALL!"

"The only way I can repay you for the support is to return the favor by donating all the proceeds I receive from my jersey sales back into the communities!"

This is the 2nd time this month Kaepernick has pledged to give away a huge chunk of change. Last week, he announced he'd give $1 MILLION to charity.

It's unclear exactly how much dough Kaep will give away ... but with the jerseys flying off the shelves, it's certain to be another big donation.

Ex-49er Bruce Miller's H.S. Coach 'Guy I Know Wouldn't Beat Up An Old Man'

9/6/2016 12:58 PM PDT

Ex-49er fullback Bruce Miller isn't the type of person who'd punch an elderly man ... at least according to Miller's H.S. coach ... who says his former star is "a great kid."

Miller allegedly beat up a 70-year-old man in a San Francisco hotel room this weekend ... before being arrested for aggravated assault, elder abuse, threats and battery. 

TMZ Sports spoke to Coach Mike O'Brien -- Smith's coach at Woodstock High School from '04-'05 -- about the heinous allegations against Miller. 

O'Brien -- who keeps in touch with Miller and last talked to him a few weeks ago -- tells us, "He's a great kid. Comes from a good family. Cares about people. That's not the kid I know. It doesn't sound like something he'd do."

Coach O'Brien says his primary concern right now isn't Miller's football career (he was cut by the 49ers) ... it's his life. 

"He's facing some serious charges. I hope he gets this settled so he can move on with his life."

Reid Sr. says he had no idea his son was planning to take a knee with Kaep before the 49ers took on the Chargers in San Diego on "Salute the Military Night" ... but he was pleasantly surprised. 

"I’m proud of my son for standing up for what he believes in. I didn’t know he planned to do this but he’s a strong man, and I’m proud of him."

"I stand with him. It’s not that he doesn’t love the country or respect the military, and police. He does. It’s about bringing awareness to the situation. He’s supporting what Kaep’s doing."
