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. The news comes after Page Six's Ian Mohr reported Colin was "taking meetings with publishers in the NY offices of WME".
Despite the outcry, it was decided that there would be no punishment for players who choose to take part in the peaceful protests by kneeling or sitting during the national anthem at games. It remains unclear if Kaepernick would attend without an official invitation from the league.

Many believe Kaepernick's unemployment has more to do with his activism than his arm. This time around, the NFL has been notified that Kaepernick has been invited to join the meeting, despite it coming in the midst of his grievance against the league for allegedly conspiring to freeze him out of a job.

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins invited Kaepernick to the first meeting, but he did not attend. Earlier this year he opted out of his contract with the 49ers, and now he's somehow shocked that no other team is eager to go obtain his services.
His actions were met by both widespread support and widespread condemnation, but unfortunately, his allies couldn't help him when he became available as a free agent at the end of the 2016-2017 season.
"He's made the ultimate sacrifice (as a player) and I respect that wholeheartedly". "And I think that would have gone against exactly what they said they were going to do".
Newton is not the only player to take notice of the issues.
