Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernic filed a grievance against the NFL alleging the owners want to keep him out of the league because of his protests during the national anthem before the football games. In other words, black-balling him from the NFL.
Instead of filing the grievance through the NFL Players Association, Kaepernick has hired an attorney, Mark Geragos. Greagos has represented many high profile clients including Michael Jackson, former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield and musician Chris Brown.
Geragos said in a statement given to ABC News on Sunday the grievance was filed "only after pursuing every possible avenue with all NFL teams and their executives." Kaepernick's goal is just to be treated fair and return to playing football in the NFL.
