Colin Kaepernick is an American football quarterback working as a free agent and was playing for the San Francisco 49ers in the National Football League from 2011 to 2016. He has set multiple school and college records during his time at the University of Nevada, Reno. However, he has attracted a lot of controversy of late for protesting against injustice as he refused to stand for the American national anthem.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Colin Kaepernick currently has a net worth that stands at an estimated $20 million.
During his time with the San Francisco 49ers from 2011 and 2016, the 32-year old earned roughly around $43 million in salary (inclusive of fees and taxes). His highest during the period came in 2016 which was estimated to be $14.3 million, as reported by Celebrity Net Worth.
He has been out of the NFL since the 2016 season for kneeling to the American national anthem as he protested against racial injustice and police brutality. Colin Kaepernick has accomplished his goal this Saturday of proving that he can still play for the league as he completed a workout, arranged by NFL. Eric Reid, a close friend of Kaepernick and former teammate, believes that Colin Kaepernick displayed his ability to play in the NFL after he worked out in front of the team scouts.
The workout, however, involved a lot of chaos and left a trail of controversies, which involved Kaepernick moving the venue at the last minute after a dispute over the contract regarding the workout. This resulted in many scouts not attending the session and even disappointed Jay Z, who has been his supporter and also worked with NFL on the subject.
