Colin Kaepernick has formally filed a suit against the National Football League, alleging the sports entities in the organizations have engaged in collusion.
The Bleacher Report reports that the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback charges that the owners have participated in “collusion under the latest collective bargaining agreement.”
Kaepernick reportedly hired famed attorney Mark Geragos to assist him in his legal grievance with the NFL.
The 29-year old activist was the first football player of note to take a knee during the United States National Anthem in protest of police brutality and social injustice. Last year, Kaepernick didn’t continue his contract with the San Fransisco 49ers, but he was not picked up by another team. Many teams have stated on the record they didn’t want the attention that he has generated over his beliefs.
Kaepernick has not retired, contrary to previous reports
