Free agent Quarterback Colin Kaepernick is pursuing a collusion grievance against the NFL under the CBA.
Sports Illustrated (@SI) reports that the information was relayed to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora through an NFL spokesman. The grievance alleges that NFL teams colluded in not signing him to a contract, due to his decision to kneel during the National Anthem in 2016. Kaepernick has retained outside counsel to handle the claim. The NFLPA National Football League Players Association will remain in touch with Kaepernick as the grievance moves forward, but Kaepernick’s private attorney will be handling the proceedings and court appearances if it comes to that.
