Colin Kaepernick expected to be invited to meeting with owners

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick stands in the bench area during the second half of the team's NFL football game against the New York Jets in Santa Clara Calif

While he has yet to be signed to a team, the protest he started has transcended him and become a national symbol of peaceful protest against the powers that be.

NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said the former quarterback would be invited by the players, not the league, while on a conference call with national reporters on Wednesday.

Colin Kaepernick, who was not at the October 13 get-together in NY, will be invited to the next meeting, an National Football League spokesman told reporters Wednesday during a conference call.

Although a number of quarterback injuries this season (and general incompetence at the position), Kaepernick has not been able to find a job.

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.

Kaepernick was perhaps the most prominent not at those meetings, which included 49ers safety Eric Reid, who was the first player to join Kaepernick's protest in August 2016.

Tried to warn about James Toback for 20 years: James Gunn
Criminal investigations are underway in London, New York and Los Angeles on the ex-tycoon in the film. The indie rock band Veruca Salt used the hashtag to call out Toback on October 16.

"We look forward to him joining the conversation", Lockhart said.

"I think the insane thing is, the reason for the protest has been completely lost in all of this", Strahan, a former defensive end for the New York Giants, told Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on her show Tuesday. Just as players have a right to protest at any venue and for any objective they choose, so, too, does the VFW post, he said.

The original meeting included 13 current or former players, plus 11 owners and representatives from the National Football League and NFLPA, according to ESPN.

Kaepernick, who filed a grievance against the NFL owners on October 15, alleging they colluded to keep him out of the league, did not attend that meeting. ESPN reports that he is not working through the NFLPA, but has hired high-profile lawyer Mark Geragos to represent him. However, he ended up not attending that meeting, for reasons that remain unknown. There's little doubt the filing makes it less likely he ends up getting signed this year or during the coming offseason.

Kaepernick's campaign began previous year, but reached a fever pitch when President Trump weighed in recently on Twitter.
