$20 million must be Colin Kaepernick’s special number. Just like he requested with the Alliance of American Football League, the former NFL QB wanted $20 million dollars to play in the upcoming XFL according to a report from Sporting News.
An XFL spokesperson reportedly told the news outlet that the two parties spoke back in the Fall about Kaepernick joining XFL, but he wanted at least $20 million, something they couldn’t do.
Coming in 2020, the XFL is expected to sign its first wave of players during the first quarter of 2019. On Monday, the league announced Seahawks legend Jim Zorn as the new coach of the league’s Seattle-based club.
This report comes just days after Kaepernick reached a settlement with the NFL over his collusion case. Although it’s unknown what the details were in the agreement, the possibility of his return to the league is plausible, and rumors have suggested that the Patriots & Panthers could be calling.
We’ll continue to keep you posted on Kaep moving forward.
