Colin Kaepernick may not be able to land a deal with an NFL team, but don’t feel too sorry for him.
That’s because the former San Francisco quarterback has figured out another way to make a buck or two – a million dollar book deal.
According to Page Six, the progenitor of the ‘take-a-knee’ protest movement has signed a publishing deal with Random House imprint One World worth a bit over $1 million.
One World was founded by publishing mogul Chris Jackson and, in addition to its newest signee, also publishes Ta-Nehisi Coates and Jay-Z.
Kaepernick recently made headlines by filing a grievance against league owners accusing them of “collusion” based on “partisan political provocation by the executive branch of our government.” Earlier this year he opted out of his contract with the 49ers, and now he’s somehow shocked that no other team is eager to go obtain his services.
The former San Francisco quarterback had been seen “taking meetings with publishers in the New York offices of WME” to sell his book, according to Page Six.
And now, he’ll get to eat a little while longer, depending on how long he can make a mere million last.
Meanwhile, sports analyst Jason Whitlock has a few title suggestions for Kap’s new book:
