Colin Kaepernick's collusion grievance against NFL moving forward

Earlier this week, it was reported that Kaepernick had met with publishers in the NY offices of WME, however neither Kaepernick nor his agent have confirmed the potential book deal.

Kaepernick, who filed a grievance against the NFL owners on October 15 alleging they colluded to keep him out of the league, hired lawyer Mark Geragos to represent him. It remains unclear if Kaepernick would attend without an official invitation from the league.

National Football League owners and players will meet next Tuesday on the issues that matter to them, and this time around, Colin Kaepernick is expected to be in attendance. Kaepernick drew national attention last season by taking a kneel to protest social injustice. Many have attributed NFL teams' reluctance in signing him on his political activism and his protest of the national anthem.

It's probably just a matter of time.

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett said after his team's victory over the New York Giants on Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J., that Kaepernick's unemployment should be discussed at the next meeting with the owners.

Numerous players, for their part, are putting their commitment to social justice into action.

The NFL and players are expected to meet next week for another round of discussions about national anthem protests, and a big guest may be included: Colin Kaepernick.

His actions were met by both widespread support and widespread condemnation, but unfortunately, his allies couldn't help him when he became available as a free agent at the end of the 2016-2017 season.

"I'm hoping he has an opportunity to play", Bennett said. Troops go across seas and every day show courage and bravery, but they do it for every single American.

Newton is not the only player to take notice of the issues.

The fight for freedom and equality is one that affects everyone, and people need to realize that not everyone in this country is treated fairly. clearly lays out rules that are repeatedly broken.
