Colin Kaepernick will attend next meeting between National Football League players and owners

Colin Kaepernick will attend next meeting between National Football League players and owners

Colin Kaepernick's life has certainly changed during the past year.

"Kaepernick's popularity is not surprising in light of the fact that President Trump's criticism of the "Take A Knee" protests that he started in the NFL has thrown him into the national spotlight in recent weeks", said Alvin Tillery, associate professor of political science and director of the CSDD at Northwestern, reports The Washington Examiner.

Details about Kaepernick's book deal remain fuzzy. The league did not formally invite Kaepernick, who began the movement to raise awareness for the mistreatment of minorities by police officers and racial inequality by sitting and then kneeling during the national anthem last season.

NFL owners have said they would like players to refrain from protests during the national anthem on game day, although it now appears that Jones is the last owner in favor of establishing hardened rules barring it.

Kaepernick's legal representatives then issued a statement saying that while he had received an invitation from the players, the National Football League had not sent a formal invitation as it did for other players. The news comes after Page Six's Ian Mohr reported Colin was "taking meetings with publishers in the NY offices of WME".

Kaepernick has begged teams for the opportunity to play again, saying that he would train with them in private and would be open to playing for any of the 32 teams. I expect that he will be invited to this meeting and we look forward to him joining the conversation.

Due to all the ambiguity, some people think these protests are in resistance to President Trump, others think it's about a general unity, a few actually relate it back to Kaepernick's message, but most people are just confused.

It remains to be seen what impact Kaepernick could have with his direct involvement with meetings. Many believe Kaepernick's unemployment has more to do with his activism than his arm.

Kaepernick's decision to stay mostly out of the public eye recently may be due to some high-profile missteps he took while in the limelight, like when he said he didn't vote in the presidential election because he didn't want to support a system of oppression, or when he wore a Fidel Castro shirt and praised Cuba's literacy rates. Among other things, that grievance is seeking to dig into private communications of owners and executives over the past year, apparently in hopes of finding a smoking gun that proves teams worked together against him as a form of retribution for his protests during the anthem.
