Kaeper­nick to re­lease mem­oir through his publishing com­pany,

Times-Herald (Vallejo) - - SPORTS -

Colin Kaeper­nick can add au­thor and pub­lisher to his re­sume. The for­mer NFL quar­ter­back who knelt dur­ing the na­tional an­them to protest racial in­jus­tice and po­lice bru­tal­ity an­nounced he’s writ­ing a mem­oir through his own publishing com­pany.

It’s called Kaeper­nick Publishing, and the au­dio ver­sion of the cur­rently un­ti­tled book due later this year will be avail­able through Au­di­ble, a sub­sidiary of Ama­zon.

The 32-year-old Kaeper­nick has been out of a job in the NFL the last three years. He filed a grievance against the NFL, con­tend­ing teams col­luded to keep him out. The sides reached an undis­closed set­tle­ment.

Kaeper­nick will write about that ex­pe­ri­ence and what prompted his ac­tivism.

Lil­lard in­jured his groin on Wednesday night and said he would not be able to play in ei­ther the game or Satur­day night’s 3-point com­pe­ti­tion.
