XFL Commissioner Says The League Won’t Sign Colin Kaepernick Due To His Salary Demands

Colin Kaepernick won’t be taking his talents to the XFL.

XFL commissioner Oliver Luck spoke with the Tampa Bay Times on a number of players and topics surrounding the league and it turns out that Kaepernick playing in the XFL was never really an option.

“I think his salary demands are way out of our ballpark. He was never really a viable option.”

Kaepernick hasn’t played professional football since 2016 and it appears unlikely the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback will ever play a down in the NFL again.

Kaepernick recently declined an NFL workout due to an issue with the waiver the league required him to sign.


As for the XFL, it doesn’t seem that will be an option for Kaepernick, either.
