Colin Kaepernick days in the NFL are probably over after filing a grievance against team owners, who he says have conspired to keep him out of the league over his national anthem protest.
But even without a pro football check, Kaepernick will still see a huge payday thanks to a recent $1 million dollar book deal with One World imprint Random House.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback reportedly inked the deal on Tuesday.
If you’re unfamiliar with One World, the company launched last year and is headed by book enthusiast Chris Jackson.
Jackson has become a rare public star in the world of book publishing, most notably known for his work with civil rights attorney Bryan Stevenson, hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, and author Ta-Nehisi Coates.
Previously, Page Six reported that Kaepernick had been seen “taking meetings with publishers in the New York offices of WME” to shop the planned book.
