According to Mike McCarthy an XFL spokesman confirmed Monday that Colin Kaepernick talked with executives about joining the league this past fall.
We’re told the XFL didn’t divulge any more details of the Kaepernick talks. We’ve previously heard that the former 49ers quarterback wanted at least $20 million to suit up for the AAF.
Kaepernick recently settled his collusion case against the NFL. His talks with both the XFL and AAF indicate he wants to play after a two-year absence. If the reports are true about his asking price, then I think it’s highly unlikely that we see Kaepernick in the XFL.
