National Football League expects Kaepernick invite to next players' meeting

However, Lockhart noted it's up to the players whether or not to invite Kaepernick.

NFL Spokesman Joe Lockhart said the invitation had been offered by the NFLPA and not the league, but that "we look forward to him joining the conversation".

On Oct. 15, Kaepernick filed a collusion suit against the NFL, alleging the league had conspired to keep him from landing another job after he opted out of his 49ers contract earlier this year.

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins invited Kaepernick to a special meeting between National Football League owners and players October 17 in NY.

Kaepernick has begged teams for the opportunity to play again, saying that he would train with them in private and would be open to playing for any of the 32 teams.

Michael Strahan says that the intended message of the ongoing NFL national anthem protests has been overshadowed amid the ensuing controversy.

The NFL Players Association also did not have any such confirmation. The league later said it's up to the players to decide who will attend to represent them per the Washington Post.

After Kaepernick started kneeling during the National Anthem last season to protest police brutality against African Americans, Malcom Jenkins of The Philadelphia Eagles joined the protest by raising a fist. Trump's Vice President Mike Pence left an Indianapolis Colts game after players from the opposing team, the 49ers, kneeled during the national anthem.

The reasons teams have given for not signing or considering Kaepernick have been mostly mundane and defensible, although Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians gave a strangely false response after his starting quarterback was injured Sunday.

It remains to be seen what impact Kaepernick could have with his direct involvement with meetings. The president has spoken both directly and indirectly about Kaepernick on a number of occasions already, most notably making a thinly veiled reference to him as a kneeling "son of a bitch" in a speech in September.
