Those meetings are scheduled for next Tuesday in NY.

The meeting Kaepernick is expected to be invited to is scheduled for next Tuesday in NY, almost two weeks after the first meeting between players, owners and league executives regarding the protests during the national anthem.

It was reported in March that Kaepernick planned on standing for the national anthem this season.

It's very possible Kaepernick's future could just have nothing to do with the NFL. It was not clear if the former quarterback would attend the meeting.

League officials have said it is up to the players to decide who will attend the meetings on their side.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people, and people of color", Kaepernick said after the first game in which he took the knee.

The court said that it would not let the government shoot from its shoulders and hence it is the centre which must take the call. The judge was part of a three-judge bench comprising of himself, CJI Dipak Misra and Justice AM Khanwilkar.

The former 49ers quarterback filed a grievance complaint against the National Football League last Sunday, and while many have noted that the manner in which Kaepernick remains unemployed is wrong on a basic level, his legal team has to prove that National Football League owners have actively colluded against him.

The league has surrendered to the players so thoroughly, that they must realize the ultimate capitulation for the NFL can't merely amount to Kaepernick attending a meeting. Earlier this year he opted out of his contract with the 49ers, and now he's somehow shocked that no other team is eager to go obtain his services.

"The most important finding in the survey is that African-Americans are not taking part in protests, organizing meetings and fundraising activities related to BLM in their local environments in anywhere near the rate that most had assumed", he added.

"I'm hoping he has an opportunity to play", Bennett said.

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett said after his team's victory over the New York Giants on Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J., that Kaepernick's unemployment should be discussed at the next meeting with the owners.
