Colin Kaepernick has reportedly agreed to a book deal worth $1 million

Out-of-work free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who began the movement of NFL players protesting by kneeling during national anthem while he was playing for the San Francisco 49ers past year, is expected to be invited to the next meeting between owners and players.

"We look forward to him joining the conversation", Lockhart said. The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday in Manhattan.

NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart told a conference call that a meeting between the league, the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) and players will be held early next week and that he expected the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback to be invited.

Controversial social issues were also discussed at last week's National Football League owners' meeting which aimed to find a compromise over the kneeling protests.

In conclusion to last week's meeting, Goodell decided that he will not require players to stand for the national anthem.

As the article notes, the company has previously downplayed its involvement in Russia's potential election interference. This was perhaps easiest because Russia-linked accounts purchased as much as $270,000 on the social network in 2016.

Lockhart acknowledged on Wednesday that the ongoing protests around the league have impacted the NFL's image.

Trump has pushed the notion kneeling players are insulting the nation, the flag and United States soldiers while players insist they are using the freedom of expression the flag represents to make their point, many who won't kneel now locking arms in a sign of unity that has included club owners at times.

"Kaepernick's popularity is not surprising in light of the fact that President Trump's criticism of the "Take A Knee" protests that he started in the NFL has thrown him into the national spotlight in recent weeks", said Alvin Tillery, associate professor of political science and director of the CSDD at Northwestern, reports The Washington Examiner. "There are bodies in the street, and people getting paid leave, and getting away with murder". This form of protesting was not because players want to "disrespect" the American flag, but to protest racial inequities and police brutality.

"We believe that we are". What Trump is doing is trying to use his considerable power and influence as the president to stop the protests, and what many must understand is that just because we love our country doesn't mean we have to agree with everything that is going on in our country.
