It’s Colin Kaepernick vs the National Football League.

The former San Francisco 49ers Quarterback has filed a grievance against the NFL owners for alleged collusion.

Kapernick’s lawyer Mark Geragos announced the news on Twitter Sunday afternoon.

So what does this mean in layman’s terms?

The grievance alleges that team owners have worked in unison to keep Kaepernick out of the league, which violates the collective-bargaining agreement between the NFL and players union.
