In July last year, the game was updated with new unlockable characters including Zack Wonder the footballer. Now, it has been updated with new unlockable characters based on real-life football players:

Show your support by downloading your favorite player and helping him win his weekly head to head matchup! Many new players coming this season, so check our Facebook and Twitter page for all the updates! Want to escape the Evil Demon Monkey as YOUR favorite player? Let us know who you want to see!
As noted by Touch Arcade, the first two featured footballers are NFL quarterbacks Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks and Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers. They can be unlocked via in-app purchase for $0.99 each.
To be sure, though, they’re not the first guest stars in Temple Run 2. The very first was none other than the fastest man ever, Usain Bolt, whose likeness was added to the game as a playable character in August last year.
