Colin Kaepernick’s Collusion Grievance Against NFL Headed to Trial
The decision means owners, coaches and team execs may be called to testify during the season.
Thanks to an arbitrator’s ruling, some NFL owners, coaches and team execs will be called to testify in Colin Kaepernick’s collusion case against the league during the upcoming season.
Kaepernick contends the owners violated their CBA with players by conspiring to keep him off the roster of all 32 teams since he became a free agent in 2017 because of his social justice efforts.

Now that the case is moving forward, the issue of whether owners worked together rather than decided individually not to sign Kaepernick will be key.
A similar lawsuit filed by Kaepernick’s former teammate Eric Reid is also pending.
The ruling also may give the NFLPA more leverage during negotiations with the NFL about the yet-to-be-revised anthem policy.
