Former San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick may not be able to find a gig playing in the National Football League, but he's allegedly found one writing for one of the world's most esteemed literary imprints. 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. Kaepernick, who began kneeling during the national anthem before the 2016 season and now is out of the NFL, did not attend that meeting.

It was reported in March that Kaepernick planned on standing for the national anthem this season.

President Donald Trump continued his criticism of the NFL last week following the owners meeting with players to discuss the ongoing national anthem protests.

Kaepernick reportedly said he would stand during the anthem if he got a chance to play in 2017.

Rose McGowan's account suspended by Twitter
The company temporarily restrained her from posting tweets because she put a private phone number in one of her messages, it says. Rose McGowan is the latest to get caught up in Twitter's uneven attempts to enforce civility.

The league has surrendered to the players so thoroughly, that they must realize the ultimate capitulation for the NFL can't merely amount to Kaepernick attending a meeting. The meeting is expected to happen Tuesday in NY. I expect that he will be invited to this meeting and we look forward to him joining the conversation.

Kaepernick's grievance would provide a fascinating backdrop if he winds up attending the meeting. Several teams have had to justify not pursuing Kaepernick, who threw for 16 touchdowns and ran for two more last season against four interceptions, while signing other clearly inferior options. That ultimately appeared to have been orchestrated by Trump, who said he asked Pence to walk out in the event that protests occurred during the anthem.

That will be a hard allegation to prove, unless team personnel left a trail of communications indicating collusion. But a league source told Yahoo Sports on Wednesday that there is an expectation from the NFL that Kaepernick's inclusion in talks will draw more attention from Trump.
