Colin Kaepernick will attend next meeting between National Football League players and owners

Colin Kaepernick will attend next meeting between National Football League players and owners

New developments this week mean Colin Kaepernick's voice could be heard on a couple different platforms.

NFL owners will meet next week to consider changes to a game manual that says players "should" stand during the national anthem, a guideline the league has left to the discretion of players. Further details on the book or the deal were not immediately available. Palmer has a broken arm, and his timeline remains unclear.

A source says that Kaepernick has been behind the scenes, "taking meetings with publishers in the NY offices of WME". The invitation will be extended by the players, not the league, Lockhart said on the league's weekly conference call.

As it stands, for some Spanish speakers, Chocoladilla reads less like a chocolate quesadilla and more like chocolate pubic lice. Taco Bell is testing dessert quesadillas made with Kit Kat and Twix candy bars at stores in the United States.

"We look forward to him joining the conversation", said Joe Lockhart, executive vice president of communications for the NFL.

Kaepernick was invited to a meeting last week between players and owners by Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins to discuss the protests during the national anthem, but did not attend. According to ESPN, that meeting included 13 current or former players, plus 11 owners and representatives from the league and the NFL Players Association. ESPN reports that he is not working through the NFLPA, but has hired high-profile lawyer Mark Geragos to represent him.

One major finding that stood out in the survey is the desire for a national leader-the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback stood out among the choices given to respondents. There's little doubt the filing makes it less likely he ends up getting signed this year or during the coming offseason. What far too many people fail to understand about the act of kneeling-aside from being a Constitutionally-protected form of protest-is that as recently as 2009, the National Football League didn't send teams out of the locker room until after the anthem was finished; that year, the Department of Defense used taxpayer dollars to launch an advertising campaign with the National Football League, which included bringing the teams out to honor the flag.
