Colin Kaepernick sparked the NFL protests last season when he decided to kneel during the national Anthem. He recieved tons of backlash for the peaceful demonstration and now six weeks into the new football season Kaepernick still hasn’t been hired by a team.
According to NFL writer for USA today Mike Jones, the football player has filed a grievance against owners of the NFL and is doing so independently of the NFL players Association. He has reportedly accussed owners of participating in collusion which means that he basically thinks that they are conspiring to keep him out of the NFL .
The Collective Bargaining Agreement or CBA actually prohibits this from happening and if he can prove this it would be a huge deal.
