- Colin Kaepernick has reportedly signed a book deal with One World worth $1 million. Kaepernick remains unsigned as a football player and recently filed a collusion grievance against NFL owners.
Colin Kaepernick has agreed to a book deal with Random House imprint One World worth just over $1 million, according to The New York Post’s Ian Mohr.
According to The Post, One World is headed by literary editor Chris Jackson, and has published work from Ta-Nehisi Coates and Jay Z.
Kaepernick had reportedly been seen taking meetings at the offices of the publisher earlier in October, according to The Post. It’s unclear what the book will entail.
In October, Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against NFL owners over his unemployment in the league. Kaepernick hasn’t been signed to a NFL roster since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March.
Kaepernick, whose national anthem protest last year sparked a wave of protests across the league, has reportedly been working out and hoping for another shot in the NFL.
