Colin Kaepernick Files Grievance Against NFL Owners
Colin Kaepernick is sick and tired of playing with these NFL owners so he’s taking legal action.
The free-agent quarterback is filing a grievance against NFL owners for collusion according to a document obtained by ABC News.
Kaepernick is not going through the NFL Players Association but has instead hired attorney Mark Geragos, who has represented several high-profile clients, including Michael Jackson, former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield and musician Chris Brown.
The filing, which demands an arbitration hearing on the matter, says the NFL and its owners “have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States.”
Kaepernick’s attorney sent a copy of the complaint to the NFLPA, as well as the NFL and all 32 teams.
The filing was first reported by Bleacher Report.
Handle your business, Colin!
