Kaepernick has $1 million book deal

Rally In Support Of NFL Quarterback Colin Kaepernick Outside The League's HQ In New York

NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 23: Activists rally in support of NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick outside the offices of the National Football League on Park Avenue, August 23, 2017 in New York City. During the NFL season last year, Kaepernick caused controversy by kneeling during the National Anthem at games to protest racial oppression and police brutality. Kaepernick is currently a free agent and some critics and analysts claim NFL teams don’t want to sign him due to his public display of his political beliefs. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)

Colin Kaepernick doesn’t have a job in the NFL, but he’s getting paid.

PFT has confirmed that Kaepernick has signed a book deal, but we’ve gotten none of the specific details, yet. According to the New York Post, the arrangement with Random House is worth more than $1 million.

Kaepernick previously has been meeting with publishers regarding the project. It’s unclear what the focus or format of the book will be.

Kapernick has been in the process of donating $1 million to a variety of worthy causes over the last year, so if nothing else this will replenish his personal bank account at a time when NFL money may not be coming, any time soon.

Unless he donates the book proceeds, too.
