Colin Kaepernick To Publish Memoir

Kap sparked worldwide conversation when he started his demonstration in 2016. saying he was bringing attention to police brutality and racial inequality.

The 32-year-old Kaepernick has been out of a job in the National Football League the last three years. "I still train five days a week". I'm ready to go, I'm ready for a phone call, tryout, workout at any point in time.

"I've had a lot of questions surrounding what got me to the point of protesting", he told USA Today's Jarrett Bell on Thursday. Audible, the producer and seller of spoken audio entertainment, will release the spoken-word version and will partner with the imprint to create original content from and about influential figures.

"I've had a lot of questions surrounding what got me to the point of protesting", he added. Why did I do it at that moment? "So I not only wanted to give insight into what led me to protest through my memoir, I wanted to make sure I was able to retain the ownership over my story in the process". The story tells of the experiences that led to the act of protest that has inspired the world. "So I think there's a lot of interest around it, but time will tell when the book comes out".

This discussion only heated up after both Tua Tagovailoa and Trevor Lawrence played a major hand in securing a national championship for their school during their first year playing college football, and after the former saw his junior campaign cut short this season after falling victim to a debilitating hip injury, plenty of people called for the NFL to rethink its current policy concerning when players are allowed to enter the league. Some 49ers continued to kneel during the 2017 season while Kaepernick remained a free agent, and Vice President Mike Pence staged a highly publicized walk-out when 23 San Francisco players kneeled before the 49ers' October 8, 2017 game against the Indianapolis Colts. At 32 and ostensibly well-rested from taking a few years off from the crushing labour of the sport, Kaepernick would be worth a flier at least from a team in search of a dual-threat quarterback with above-average arm strength.
