The NFL wants to hear from Colin Kaepernick

The NFL wants to hear from Colin Kaepernick

"He has been in discussion with the players coalition".

"I don't have any confirmation that he is planning to attend".

Yahoo's Charles Robinson reported later Wednesday that Kaepernick will attend and that "players are happy to have him join".

NFL owners and representatives from the NFL Players Association recently met with NFL commissioner Rodger Goodell to discuss the protests, which have led some - including President Trump - to call for a boycott of the organization. Trump's Vice President Mike Pence left an Indianapolis Colts game after players from the opposing team, the 49ers, kneeled during the national anthem.

Late Chelsea goals sink Watford
Batshuayi was given two good chances to add to his tally and put Chelsea back ahead only to miss the target on each occasion. Watford , who are flying high in fourth place, have made one change to the starting XI that beat Arsenal last week.


"The most important finding in the survey is that African-Americans are not taking part in protests, organizing meetings and fundraising activities related to BLM in their local environments in anywhere near the rate that most had assumed", he added. "We hope and we're going to continue to work to try to put that at zero". The NFL now says they expect Kaepernick to be invited to the next meeting.

The 29-year-old Kaepernick, who wants to continue his National Football League career after becoming a free agent in March when he opted out of the final season of his contract with the 49ers, reportedly signed a book deal worth more than $1 million with Random House.

Kaepernick completed 59.2% of his passes, averaged 6.8 yards per attempt and threw 16 touchdowns with four interceptions in 12 games for the 49ers last season.

Kaepernick was the quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers a year ago when he started kneeling during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner as a way to draw attention to racial inequality and social injustice in the wake of several police shootings of unarmed African-Americans. That ultimately appeared to have been orchestrated by Trump, who said he asked Pence to walk out in the event that protests occurred during the anthem.
