Over $1 million for a book from the ex-San Fran quarterback. Random House is the lucky publisher to partner up for the book deal.


Colin Kaepernick has inked a book deal worth just over $1 million with Random House
Ex-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Kaepernick launched the current movement of NFL players protesting during the national anthem, and he’s recently filed a controversial collusion grievance against league owners. He’s still looking for a job in the NFL after opting out of his 49ers contract earlier this year.
pagesix.com...

The story doesn't go into the subject that Kaepernick's book will cover. I look forward to hearing what the subject is going to be and wonder how big of a market there is for this book.


Kaepernick had been seen “taking meetings with publishers in the New York offices of WME” to shop the planned book. He’s repped as an athlete by agent Carlos Fleming, and the book deal, we hear, went through Andy McNicol on the Hollywood agency lit department.

Not a bad idea on his part, cash out while you can if people are still interested.

Weird part is, how interested some people are.

I've never heard of anyone boycotting celebrities when they say something political...

But somehow football is sacred to some.

At the end of the day though, they're entertainers and nothing more.

That's a lot of money to pay for a coloring book, because I don't see that clown putting 2 sentences together.

He is not a good QB.

Better get that money while he can.

That million dollar book deal is another example of how unfair the US has become.

Maybe he can write but he sure can't read a defense.

Why would anyone want to read that crap?

Oh, wait, I would rather read his book than Hillary's.

It's the kind of book many Americans read, what some famous person has to say about something. Hey, maybe it's gonna be a romance novel.

I guess he is not planning to donate the $$$ to help the ravaged societies reeling under the oppressive fist of those pig police, huh?

A perfect example of a hypocrite money grubber IMO.

That would be awesome if it ended up just being shapes and scribbles. Maybe some hair and pocket lint glued on the pages.

Or better yet, maybe it'll just be all blacked out pages as a protest. Some chapters will be missing because they decided to stay in the locker room.

I don’t buy Heinz ketchup, mustard, etc. I don’t watch The View either due to the collection of “talent” on the show. But that’s me.

He'll pay a ghost writer 50 grand and keep the rest, save 15 percent for his book agent.

I'm no fan of Kaepernick but I'm not sure why any of this is "unfair"...?

He clearly was at least a decent athlete (for a few years on a professional level).

As it started to become clear that he was no longer able to complete on the professional level, he made a big stink (about what, I have no idea.... and neither did he in that first interview after the initial kneel-down).

He became more well known after the kneel-down than he was prior to it.

A company thinks they can sell books that will bring in enough to cover the $1,000,000 plus other associated costs with publishing, printing, cover art, shipping, etc and make a profit.

I can't imagine who would want to hear what he has to say (via a ghostwriter).... but if people want to pay him for it.... none of my business but I don't find it "unfair."

He got replaced at quarterback so why not as a writer also.

Celebrities NEVER write their own books...

They all use and hire ghost writers, pay em 50 to 100 grand. Even Hillary and Obama didn't write their books

Well.... now that he's had enough time to reasons for his kneeling.... in some ways yes, it will be a COLORing book.

Haha, you don't buy heinz ketchup because of Kerry? Don't get me wrong, that dude is a wet blanket... But really?

I don't let the mirage of two party politics impact my day to day. Life's to short, they affect it to much as it is, don't let them change everyday life though.

I don't buy Keinz ketchup either because it's well ... ketchup, and I don't buy Heinz mustard because it's well mustard and mustard deserves to be better than just Heinz.
