With hopes of returning to football appearing to diminish by the day, free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick is reportedly embarking on a new career as an author. Page Six reports that the free agent quarterback has landed a $1 million deal with an imprint of Random House.
Page Six reports:
Colin Kaepernick has inked a book deal worth just over $1 million with Random House imprint One World, Page Six has exclusively learned.
One World’s headed by book world superstar Chris Jackson, who also publishes Jay-Z and Ta-Nehisi Coates. He launched One World last year.
Ex-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Kaepernick launched the current movement of NFL players protesting during the national anthem, and he’s recently filed a controversial collusion grievance against league owners. He’s still looking for a job in the NFL after opting out of his 49ers contract earlier this year.
Meanwhile, NFL teams in need of Kaepernick’s services are still pretending he’s not at least a backup quarterback in the league and signing guys literally off the street. Get that book money, homie. We all spot the jig.
