Colin Kaepernick Is Trying To Get A New Job In An Entirely Different Industry – Wow
Disgraced, unemployed former 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is attempting to break into an entirely different industry now. According to reports Kap is now shopping a book concept around New York.
The ex-San Francisco 49ers quarterback launched the current movement of NFL players protesting during the national anthem, and he’s filed a controversial collusion grievance against league owners.
A source says that Kaepernick has been “taking meetings with publishers in the New York offices of WME.” He’s repped as an athlete by WME agent Carlos Fleming.
He has the time to do so since leaving the league last season. Kaepernick has been attempting to get another spot on a team with no luck. Recently, Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against the NFL. The grievance claims that NFL team owners conspired against Kaepernick due to his politic beliefs.
Giants co-owner John Mara denounced Kaepernick’s collusion claims:
“Anybody that thinks that there’s been any conversations going on among teams about Colin Kaepernick is crazy. That just is not the case. I saw a quote, I think it was [Dolphins owner] Steve Ross recently that said, ‘Teams want to win so badly that if they believe a player can help them win, they’re going to bring him on.’ I think there are certain issues obviously that go along with Colin Kaepernick and that may have scared some teams away, but there is absolutely no blackball going on here.I just don’t see that at all.”
