Colin Kaepernick Signs $1M Book Deal with Random House

Here’s what happened to the number of NFL national anthem protesters after Trump criticized them

Despite starting in 11 games last season for the 49ers, Kaepernick has been unable to find a spot in the NFL.

Kaepernick has yet to hook up with an National Football League team, since walking away from the San Francisco 49ers and about $14.5 million in guaranteed money after last season.

National Football League spokesman Joe Lockhart said he expects Kaepernick will be invited, although there is no confirmation whether he would attend the meeting.

That's because, the New York Post's Page Six reported Tuesday that Kaepernick has signed a book deal worth upwards of $1 million with Random House's One World imprint.

"We look forward to him joining the conversation", Lockhart said. They said, 'I support the players, I support the cause.' But then if you did how could you tell them that they couldn't kneel? It was not clear if the former quarterback would attend the meeting.

While it's unclear how the league could allow Kaepernick back into the NFL while he has a collusion case filed against them.

Eric Bledsoe sent home from team meeting, Suns looking for trade partner
The Knicks are among the teams who have reached out to Phoenix recently about trading for guard Eric Bledsoe , per league sources. The organization, sources said, argues that the team hasn't improved since Bledsoe took over the bulk of the playmaking duties.

Trump's rhetoric led to players from the 49ers and other teams taking a knee or staying off of the field altogether while the national anthem played.

Now, many other players in various U.S. and global pro sports and even celebrities have joined in, much to the daily angst of the Tweeter in Chief, Donald Trump.

The next meeting is scheduled for October 31 in NY.

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".

President Donald Trump stirred the pot last month during a rally in Alabama, calling for owners to cut ties with players who kneel for the anthem.
