Outspoken—and out of work—free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick is expected to be invited to the next meeting between NFL owners and players.

NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart says Kaepernick will be invited by the players adding, "we look forward to him joining the conversation."

However, it's unclear if he will accept the invitation and attend the meeting, which is scheduled for next Tuesday in New York.

Why wouldn’t he attend?

Because he was also invited to a meeting on October 17th, and didn’t attend.

Of course, that was two days after Kaepernick had filed a grievance against the NFL owners on alleging they colluded to keep him out of the league.

Maybe now that he’s had some time to think about it he’ll come out to join in the conversation that he insists got its start with his NFL protest.

Wow, there’s something you don’t see anymore.

The words “NFL,” “Kaepernick,” and “start” in the same sentence.

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins invited Kaepernick to a special meeting between NFL owners and players Oct. 17 in New York. That meeting included 13 current or former players, plus 11 owners and representatives from the league and the NFL Players Association.The quarterback has not played for an NFL team since he exercised a clause in his contract and left the 49ers in March. At that time, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Kaepernick said he would stand during the anthem if he played in 2017.
