Colin Kaepernick’s collusion case is headed to trial
Colin Kaepernick’s collusion case against the NFL is headed to trial.
Arbitrator Stephen B. Burbank, who had been hearing the NFL’s case to have Kaepernick’s complaint dismissed, denied the league’s request. Kaepernick’s attorney Mark Geragos shared the statement from Burbank on the matter:

Burbank decided that there was enough evidence from Kaepernick’s side to have the matter continue through the legal process.
Kaepernick is accusing the NFL owners of colluding against him. He has not been offered a playing contract since becoming a free agent in March 2017 even though most would agree he is more accomplished and talented than a number of other quarterbacks who have been signed during that period. Kaepernick is arguing that NFL owners are colluding against him because of his leadership role in kneeling during the national anthem.
