Any type of star-studded talent is wanted by the Alliance of American Football for them to gain more exposure and attract more fans. According to Lindsay Jones of The Athletic, who spoke to AAF co-founder Bill Polian, CEO Charlie Ebersol spoke with Colin Kaepernick about his interest in the newly-started league. In fact, it was Kaepernick’s “team” who initiated the conversation, not the AAF.

According to Barry Wilner, an Associated Press writer who posted a story yesterday on this situation, during the conversation between Kaepernick and the AAF Kaepernick said he would want $20 million or more to consider playing in the league. This was offer was obviously declined by the Alliance, who has a base salary that is the same for all players within the league.

Polian also said he had spoken to Tim Tebow about joining the league, but Tebow declined the offer, as he wishes to continue playing professional baseball for the New York Mets.
