Colin Kaepernick Is A Writer Now

Colin Kaepernick will probably never play football again, but he’s about to be a full-time writer.

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback signed a Random House imprint One World for $1 million. Hey, good for him. He just can just million dollar book deals even though he’s not a writer. That gives me hope that I’ll be able to sign a million dollar deal to play for the Carolina Panthers.

Signing the deal is cool and all, but now you actually have to write, Kaep. Let me tell you, it’s much tougher than it looks. Maybe you should hire a ghostwriter. But seriously, do you need a ghostwriter?

While nothing is known about Kaepernick’s upcoming book, it’s safe to say that it will chronicle his life as an unemployed football player who caused the President to threaten to shut down the league. Maybe it’ll have some stuff about his Super Bowl run with the 49ers, but we’ll just skip to the kneeling part.

Even though he hasn’t landed a NFL job, Kaepernick has been the big winner since he started to take a knee. He’s become a martyr for the league and is far more important now than he would be if signed with a team as a backup quarterback. And I think Colin realizes this. He could sign on as a backup, but then what? He keeps kneeling, maybe people are upset, but eventually, everyone realizes that it doesn’t matter.

But if he remains without a team. Then there’s a rallying cry. “SIGN KAEP!” And he knows this. He also knows that if he remains silent, people want more. That’s why he held out for a million dollar book deal instead of doing an interview with Bob Costas.

I give the guy credit. He took a fledgling NFL career and transformed himself into the most talked about non-player in history.

But seriously, do you need a ghostwriter?
