Colin Kaepernick Signs $1 Million Book Deal

Nobody can tell your story. Rumor has it NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is ready to get real and tell his truth. The world has gone nuts over what his kneeling during the national anthem means or doesn’t mean. He’s about to take confusion out of the equation. According to a report on Page Six, he recently signed a book deal with Random House’s imprint One World for a bit more than $1 million.

Kaepernick reportedly has been seen in meetings with publishers at his agent’s office, William Morris Endeavor. For sure, he will have plenty to say. Though he opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers, he remains teamless, and the general consensus is that he’s been blackballed by the league.

The kneeling controversy ignited a nationwide debate, that spread to all manner of folk kneeling to protest the often unjustified and unpunished killings of black men by police. While Kaepernick has filed a grievance against NFL owners, alleging collusion on their part to keep him out of the league, he’s left a lot unsaid about what he’s going through right now. A book is a great idea. Who doesn’t want to hear what he has to say?
