Here We Go: Colin Kaepernick Takes Legal Action Against NFL

Colin Kaepernick has taken legal action against the National Football League, filing a grievance under the most recent collective bargaining agreement that accuses NFL owners of collusion.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback claims he’s being punished for starting the wave of protests where football players kneel during the national anthem, arguing that team owners conspired to keep him out of the league.
Under the collective bargaining agreement, the burden of proof for collusion is as follows: "The failure by a club or clubs to negotiate, to submit offer sheets, or to sign contracts with restricted free agents or transition players, or to negotiate, make offers, or sign contracts for the playing services of such players or unrestricted free agents, shall not, by itself or in combination only with evidence about the playing skills of the player(s) not receiving any such offer or contract, satisfy the burden of proof set forth …"
Kaepernick, who’s been a free agent since March when he opted out of his contract, decided to hire an attorney rather than go through the NFL Players’ Association.
