REPORT: Why XFL won’t touch Colin Kaepernick
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
Talks between former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the XFL broke down because Kaepernick’s salary requirements exceeded what any of the eight teams in the league were willing to pay him.
“We have some pretty significant salary restrictions,” XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck told NPR over the weekend. “We’re a startup league, so we want to make sure that we can be fiscally responsible and fiscally prudent.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Launched this year, the XFL is a professional football league with eight teams in major media markets across the country. The league held its opening slate of games over two days last weekend.
In discussing Kaepernick, Luke reportedly did not say how much the former 49er was asking to be paid, but did confirm it was extremely out of line. “We spoke with his representative, and the salary requirements that were broached in that conversation were exorbitant and certainly out of our range.”
