Colin Kaepernick Net Worth: Is He An American Football Player?

Colin played in the National Football League, during which time he earned little more than $43 million in compensation (before taxes and fees). 

During his time as a college football quarterback, he was consistently ranked among the best in the country.

An additional $12.3 million signing bonus and a $640,000 salary for the following season were also included in the contract extension.

In March of last year, Kaepernick was informed by the 49ers that he would be released. To become a free agent, he opted out of his contract.

A pet African spurred turtle, Sammy, has been in Kaepernick's family since he was 10. During his undergraduate years, Kaepernick was baptized Methodist, confirmed Lutheran, and a member of a Baptist church.

He and Nessa started the "Know your rights camp," which offered free seminars to low-income adolescents about self-empowerment, American history, and their legal rights, in an effort to combat youth violence.

He paid $3.21 million for a two-bedroom luxury apartment in New York City in July 2016. An apartment in Tribeca is said to have a swimming pool, a personal fitness club, and a garage.
