Colin Kaepernick and his grievance case against the NFL is beginning to heat up, this after his attorney made an appearance on CNN Tuesday night (Oct. 17). Mark Geragos told Anderson Cooper that he has a “smoking gun” in the matter that will prove NFL owners have colluded to freeze out the free agent quarterback.
“I am going to predict right now that we will have a smoking gun,” Geragos told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on “AC360.” “There are people who are not going to get into an arbitration proceeding and they are not going to lie. They are not going to lie. They are going to tell the truth and they’re going to say what happened. They were told no, you’re not going to hire him.”
Kaepernick, who is still a free agent, first took a knee during the singing of the National Anthem before a 2016 preseason game. He said he knelt to protest the treatment of black Americans, particularly by police.
Cooper noted before Geragos spoke that proving collusion is difficult, to which the attorney responded by saying that several cases involving similar lines of a conspiracy have been broken before and believes this case has that potential.
A petition is circulating via Change.org asking for the Green Bay Packers to sign Kaepernick in the wake of starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers going down with a broken collarbone. Adding to it all, Kaepernick is a Wisconsin native.
