League expects Kaepernick to be invited to meeting with players

Jacksonville Jaguars NFL football players are shown some standing an some kneeling during the playing of the national anthem before an NFL football game against the Baltimore Ravens at Wembley Stadium in London

The former 49ers quarterback this week landed a seven-figure book deal with Random House, as first reported by Pro Football Talk, and he's expected to be invited to the NFL's next set of meetings between owners and players to talk about protests of social injustice that have become a polarizing topic in league circles.

On Wednesday, NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said he expects Kaepernick to once again be invited by the players, though he doesn't know if Kaepernick would attend the meeting.

Former San Francisco 49er quarterback Kaepernick, 29, has been unemployed this season despite injuries at other teams that have created job openings. Further details on the book were not immediately available. 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. This comes after the same Page Six column reported Monday that the former NFL QB was seen "taking meetings with publishers in the NY offices of WME".

The Pixel 2 XL has wild color shifting issues, turning whites and grays completely blue when viewed even slightly off-axis. One of the potential downsides to the OLED screens that are making their way into high-end smartphones is screen burn-in.

Kaepernick began the movement of NFL players protesting by kneeling during national anthem while he was a member of the San Francisco 49ers past year.

The meeting will take place 16 days after Kaepernick filed a grievance against the National Football League owners for collusion. ESPN reports that he is not working through the NFLPA, but has hired high-profile lawyer Mark Geragos to represent him. It remains unclear if Kaepernick would attend without an official invitation from the league.

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