Colin Kaepernick Net Worth and Earnings
The American football player, Colin Kaepernick’s Net Worth is $25 million. During the 2015 NFL season, Colin Kaepernick’s salary was at its peak, i.e. $12.4 million.
In 2014 Colin had signed a record seven-year $126 million deal with the San Francisco 49ers. And after his “kneeling during the national anthem” protest, he left a ton of money behind. Later it emerged that Kaepernick made only 31% of the money from the deal.
Over the six seasons of the NFL, Colin Kaepernick’s earning was a little less than $7 million a year as his earning totaled to less than $43.5 million. Kaepernick’s $12.3 million signing bonus and $645,000 salary were only guaranteed in 2014. Since he didn’t make it to either first or second-team All-Pro and also the 49ers didn’t reach the Super Bowl, Colin lost $2 million in 2015.

As mentioned earlier Nike revealed Colin Kaepernick as one of the new faces of “Just Do It” campaign alongside the likes of Serena Williams and Odell Beckham Jr.
Sports agents have suggested that the Kaepernick’s deal could be worth millions of dollars a year. This is surprising because Kaepernick is actually not playing in the NFL. As per the Wall Street Journal, the contract is the “Top of the line” for a football player. No exact figures have been disclosed for what the contract would be worth.
