Colin Kaepernick scores million-dollar book deal

Former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick reportedly signed a contract but not with the NFL. On Tuesday, Page Six reported that the former 49ers QB-turned activist has inked a new book deal with Random House imprint One World worth around a million dollars. Kaepernick's decision to kneel during the national anthem last season to protest social injustice that set off a wave of other protests, drawing the fury of President Donald Trump and others. King has been a huge supporter of the national anthem protests and has met with Kaepernick several times.

Malcolm Jenkins told the Washington Post that Kaepernick was invited to the last meeting between players and owners. Many other players joined him in the protest, which has spread to other sports and other countries.

The meeting Kaepernick is expected to be invited to is scheduled for next Tuesday in NY, almost two weeks after the first meeting between players, owners and league executives regarding the protests during the national anthem. "We look forward to him joining the conversation".

Kaepernick was the first NFL player to take a knee during the national anthem before games during the 2016 season. "I expect he will be invited to this meeting", Lockhart said of Kaepernick, who began kneeling a year ago as a way to protest against racial injustice in the United States. However, he ended up not attending that meeting, for reasons that remain unknown. Kaepernick hasn't been signed to a National Football League roster since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March.

Lockhart acknowledged on Wednesday that the ongoing protests around the league have impacted the NFL's image.

In October, Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against NFL owners over his unemployment in the league.

That will be a hard allegation to prove, unless team personnel left a trail of communications indicating collusion.
