Colin Kaepernick is back causing problems.
Word leaked out that the leader of the anti-American NFL protest movement had scheduled a secret meeting that would take things to the next level.
And what he is up to will leave you speechless.
Kaepernick is suing the NFL for collusion over no one signing him after he left the San Francisco 49ers.
NFL players have cited his situation as something that must be resolved before they will stop putting on exhibitions of how much they hate America during the national anthem.
Now ESPN reports that the NFL has offered for Commissioner Roger Goodell to hold a secret meeting with Colin Kaepernick:
“The NFL has invited Colin Kaepernick to attend a one-on-one meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell, a league spokesman told ESPN’s Jim Trotter, but the two sides have offered conflicting comments on whether the free-agent quarterback has responded to the invitation.
Kaepernick attorney Mark Geragos told ABC News they “responded immediately that Colin would be happy to attend” but that the meeting fell through when the league rejected a request for a mediator to be present.
Colin Kaepernick has agreed to attend a formal mediation session that players have requested with the NFL, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The NFL hasn’t yet agreed to the session.
Troy Vincent, the NFL’s executive vice president of football operations, texted Kaepernick on Oct. 31 to update him on the ongoing talks about social issues between players and owners, league spokesman Joe Lockhart told Trotter on Tuesday.
At the end of the text message, Vincent extended the invitation for Kaepernick to meet with Goodell, according to Lockhart, who said the league has not heard back from the former San Francisco 49ers star.
Geragos disputed the notion that Kaepernick did not respond.
“We responded immediately that Colin would be happy to attend,” Geragos said in a statement provided to ABC News. “Because of the grievance we asked that a mediator be present. A mediator also would ensure that the discussions were productive and confidential and not used as a PR stunt or prop by the league. Colin’s proposal was rejected.”
Lockhart fired back after that claim, telling Trotter: “Mr. Geragos’ statement alone violates the collective bargaining agreement, breaking the confidentiality of the grievance process. So he can save his lecture on PR stunts. The invitation remains open.”
Kaepernick has been out of the league since he opted out of his contract last winter.
He was about to be signed by the Baltimore Ravens until his girlfriend tweeted a racist attack on the team’s owner.
So now that owners and league executives have caved and coddled the anti-military anthem protests, players believe they can bully the league into “addressing” the Kaepernick situation.
That includes pressuring a team to sign him and reward him for starting the NFL movement against the American flag and its values.
Do you think this meeting will result in Kaepernick playing in the NFL again?
