Colin Kaepernick invited to next meeting between National Football League owners and players

Letter Depriving Kaepernick of constitutional protections would be disrespectful to the country

It was reported last spring that Kaepernick would stand for the anthem if signed, but that was before the protests drew the ire of President Donald Trump causing the protests to become more popular throughout the league starting in Week 3.

It would not be untrue to call Colin Kaepernick the most divisive figure in modern day sports.

In October, Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against NFL owners over his unemployment in the league.

Kaepernick was joined by a number of NFL players spurring a national conversation about political activism by athletes.

"We believe that our players should stand for the national anthem", Goodell said last week.

The league has surrendered to the players so thoroughly, that they must realize the ultimate capitulation for the NFL can't merely amount to Kaepernick attending a meeting. Lockhart added the invitation was extended by the players and not the league.

A source says that Kaepernick has been behind the scenes, "taking meetings with publishers in the NY offices of WME". "To me, this is bigger than football, and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way". "There are bodies in the street, and people getting paid leave, and getting away with murder".

Kaepernick had reportedly been invited by the Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, to attend the last meeting between the players and the owners.

Michael Strahan says that the intended message of the ongoing NFL national anthem protests has been overshadowed amid the ensuing controversy.

"We're proud of our country. He's fired! He's fired!'"

According to Page Six, the progenitor of the "take-a-knee" protest movement has signed a publishing deal with Random House imprint One World worth a bit over $1 million.

NFL players who have demonstrated during the national anthem have said they are protesting racial inequality, but not the flag or the anthem itself.
