Kaepernick Reportedly Asked For $20 Million To Play In The AAF Despite Players Making Only $75k A Year

On Thursday, the Associated Press reported that the Alliance of American Football, better known as the AAF, reached out to disgraced NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick about the prospect of joining their league which has become an alternative to the NFL.

According to Barry Wilner of the Press, Kaepernick asked league co-founders Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian that he wanted at least $20 million to suit up for the AAF, a tall ask considering at this point in time, players make $75,000 per season.

Polian also asked former NFL QB Tim Tebow about his interesting in playing, to which the current New York Mets minor leaguer declined.

Despite the league’s inability to sign either Kaepernick or Tebow, the league posted high ratings during their debut weekend, even surpassing the NBA during the same time slot.
