Colin Kaepernick, who popularized the controversial gesture of kneeling during the USA national anthem, will likely be invited to a meeting with the NFL to discuss social issues and protests, the league said on Wednesday. According to PageSix, Kaepernick has reportedly inked a $1 million book deal with Random House's One World imprint, which is headed by editor Chris Jackson and publishes Between The World and Me author Ta-Nehisi Coates.

After Kaepernick started kneeling during the National Anthem last season to protest police brutality against African Americans, Malcom Jenkins of The Philadelphia Eagles joined the protest by raising a fist.

However, another report indicated while Kaepernick has been shopping a book deal, a deal with Random House had not been signed.

Despite not actually playing in the NFL anymore, he still plays a critical part in the league's politics. It seems a given Kaepernick would earn an invitation, given his decision to first sit and then kneel during the national anthem last season prompted scores of other players to follow his lead.

Browns' Joe Thomas Done For Season With Torn Triceps
From a practical side, the Browns have to find a replacement for Thomas before they play the Vikings in London on October 29. He has played through numerous injuries and his consecutive snaps streak is believed to be the longest in league history.

Kaepernick was perhaps the most prominent not at those meetings, which included 49ers safety Eric Reid, who was the first player to join Kaepernick's protest in August 2016. "We look forward to him joining the conversation". The news comes one day after Mohr reported that Kaepernick was meeting with publishers.

Due to all the ambiguity, some people think these protests are in resistance to President Trump, others think it's about a general unity, a few actually relate it back to Kaepernick's message, but most people are just confused.

Kaepernick's grievance would provide a fascinating backdrop if he winds up attending the meeting. Not to mention, the 29-year-old QB's take on remaining jobless, with most people believing that he has been the victim of blackballing by National Football League owners.

There was backlash among the league due to Kaepernick's absence in the past.
