Ever since Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers he's yet to be picked up by any other NFL team. This is all stemming from his 2016 decision to kneel during the playing of the national anthem in protest of police brutality, an act that he and his lawyer Mark Geragos, are now planning to fight for.
Mark Geragos, the highly distinguished trial attorney, has represented star power such as Chris Brown and the late Michael Jackson and now adds Colin Kaepernick to the roster. In summary of a statement released by Geragos on Sunday, CNN says that the grievance is being filed under the NFL's collective bargaining agreement stating that the owners conspired to keep the QB from being signed. Also included was that an athlete shouldn't be kept from a job due to provocation by political party affiliates. Geragos concluded with, "Colin Kaepernick's goal has always been, and remains, to simply be treated fairly by the league he performed at the highest level for and return to the football playing field."
