Colin Kaepernick Signs $1M Book Deal With Random House

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick may be out of a job playing professional football, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have job prospects out there. Further details on the book were not immediately available.

"Kaepernick's popularity is not surprising in light of the fact that President Trump's criticism of the "Take A Knee" protests that he started in the NFL has thrown him into the national spotlight in recent weeks", said Alvin Tillery, associate professor of political science and director of the CSDD at Northwestern, reports The Washington Examiner.

Colin Kaepernick has reportedly been invited to the next meeting between NFL players and owners, a league spokesman said Wednesday.

Last week, Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said he invited Kaepernick to a special meeting between National Football League owners and players in NY, but Kaepernick turned down the offer.

Those meetings are scheduled for next Tuesday in NY.

Kaepernick hasn't fielded questions publicly since his final game with the 49ers last January. Just as players have a right to protest at any venue and for any goal they choose, so, too, does the VFW post, he said. The quarterback recently filed a grievance alleging collusion by the NFL owners to keep him out of the league. "I expect he will be invited to this meeting", Lockhart said of Kaepernick, who began kneeling past year as a way to protest against racial injustice in the United States. He is not working through the NFLPA, but has hired high-profile lawyer Mark Geragos to represent him.

Kaepernick's campaign began past year, but reached a fever pitch when President Trump weighed in recently on Twitter. It remains unclear if Kaepernick would attend without an official invitation from the league.
