Colin Kaepernick Signs $1M Book Deal With Random House

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Last week, Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said he invited Kaepernick to a special meeting between National Football League owners and players in NY, but Kaepernick turned down the offer.

On Wednesday, NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said he expects Kaepernick to once again be invited by the players, though he doesn't know if Kaepernick would attend the meeting.

The protest began with former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and since then other athletes have continued to kneel during the national anthem.

Kaepernick, who has remained unsigned this year after opting out of his deal with the 49ers, has reportedly landed a book deal with Random House worth more than $1 million, Pro Football Talk reported.

North Carolina city, county declare a state of emergency after severe storms
Both Dorchester and Colleton Counties were among several Lowcountry counties under a tornado watch that was in effect until 9 p.m. Central and eastern North Carolina could see severe thunderstorms with damaging winds and possible tornadoes Monday night.

Kaepernick was invited to a meeting last week between players and owners by Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins to discuss the protests during the national anthem, but did not attend. He recently filed a collusion grievance against league owners.

The first meeting took place on October 17, where it was expected that owners would come away with a new rule to require players to stand for the national anthem. Many other players joined him in the protest, which has spread to other sports and other countries.

However, commissioner Roger Goodell did take a stance on the national anthem in a press conference afterward, saying, "We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem, it's an important part of our game".

It was reported last spring that Kaepernick would stand for the anthem if signed, but that was before the protests drew the ire of President Donald Trump causing the protests to become more popular throughout the league starting in Week 3.
