Pavlich: NFL Owners Correctly Determined Kaepernick Is a 'Business Liability'


Colin Kaepernick has signed a deal. It's just not with an NFL team.

The free agent quarterback has reportedly inked a book deal worth just more than $1 million with Random House imprint One World. Further details on the book or the deal were not immediately available.

Kaepernick was reportedly taking meetings with publishers in New York City this week amid his struggles to get signed by an NFL team. Many have attributed NFL teams' reluctance in signing him on his political activism and his protest of the national anthem.

Kaepernick started the trend of kneeling for the anthem last year when he played quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, in a protest against racial inequality and police brutality. This NFL season, other players and teams have continued to protest, which has been a major source of controversy for the league.

The issue was thrust back into the spotlight in September when President Donald Trump said NFL owners should fire any "son of a b****" who doesn't respect the anthem and flag. He has gone on to call the demonstrations disrespectful and blamed them for the NFL's lower ratings and attendance.

Kaepernick last week filed a collusion grievance, accusing NFL owners of blackballing him.
