Colin Kaepernick Launches Legal Action Against NFL Owners For “Collusion”
Colin Kaepernick believes NFL owners are conspiring against him to prevent the quarterback-turned-social justice warrior from playing in the league. Kaepernick has reportedly filed a grievance against the owners and hired a high-powered lawyer to handle the matter.
I am told that @Kaepernick7 has filed a grievance under the CBA for collusion against the owners. If accurate, this is huge.

From the Bleacher Report:
Per Freeman, Kaepernick has hired attorney Mark Geragos to help him in the legal situation.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports also reported the quarterback’s plan to file a grievance.
Kaepernick opted out of his contract at the conclusion of last season with the expectation he would find a new landing spot but has not gotten a new deal and has received surprisingly little interest compared to how well he played last season. He finished the year with 16 touchdowns and only four interceptions in 12 games.
CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reported last Sunday that Colin Kaepernick would stand for the Anthem if a football team were to sign him.
It turns out that La Canfora never spoke to Kaepernick directly about whether he would stand for the Anthem or not so he decided to walk back his original reporting.
