Colin Kaepernick pens book, still wants to play in the NFL
Colin Kaepernick had a very strange 2019 as failed his first real crack at an NFL return. However, it’s been revealed that he hasn’t completely given up on the idea of making it back to the league.
USA Today’s Jarrett Bell writes that the controversial quarterback is still not giving up on the chance to make it back to the league. Kaepernick revealed that he’s in the progress of writing a memoir that documents the past couple of years that he’s gone through. It’s with this book that he will talk in detail about how his professional career hit the fan after making the daring decision to kneel.
Colin Kaepernick also revealed that it was during this time that he realized how much he wants to play in the NFL:
“I learned early on that in fighting against systematic oppression, dehumanization and colonization, who controls the narrative shapes the reality of how the world views society,” Colin Kaepernick said. “It controls who’s loved, who’s hated, who’s degraded and who’s celebrated.
“My desire to play football is still there,” Kaepernick said. “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’m still waiting on the owners and their partners to stop running from this situation. So I hope I get a call this offseason. I’ll be looking forward to it.”
Colin Kaepernick has been out of the league since 2016, and it’s very unlikely that he’ll get an offer to play for an NFL team anytime soon. The XFL reportedly offered him a spot in their league, but his wage demand effectively eliminated the chance for the league to get him to play.
