Free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick is filing a grievance against NFL owners for collusion. The way he sees it, the NFL owners have been conspiring to keep him from playing football.

The free agent quarterback filed the grievance yesterday, hiring well-known attorney, Mark Geragos. His legal team issued a statement saying their client shouldn't be punished for his national anthem protests, adding that he wants to get back on the field.

The filing says the NFL and its owners "have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick's leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice." The NFLPA responded with a statement yesterday, offering Kaepernick its support and reiterating its readiness to assist him, "as we do all players."

Kaepernick has been unsigned through six weeks of the NFL season after opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers.

NFL TV ratings are down significantly and polls show a direct correlation to players taking a knee during the national anthem. So, if you are an NFL team owner, why would you want to sign a guy who started the whole practice not to mention a quarterback who can't read defenses? Will Kaepernick wind up with another NFL team at some point? Likely, if a team is desperate enough.
