Spoiled Kaepernick Makes More Cash Per Year Than 410 Marine Corporals Who Protect His Rights – COMBINED
Second-string San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who kneeled as the national anthem played during his team’s opening game Monday night, will make more money this year than the total annual salary of 410 enlistees in the United States Marine Corps with the rank of corporal.
Kaepernick’s guaranteed salary for the 2016 season is $11.9 million, according to Spotrac, a website dedicated to professional athletes’ contracts.
By way of comparison, a typical corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps earns $28,994 per year, according to Glassdoor, a website specializing in salaries.
Thus, regardless of how much he plays or rides the bench this season, Kaepernick will bring home more money than the combined salaries of 410 Marine corporals.
