Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that Colin Kaepernick isn’t just attempting to win a collusion case against NFL owners (NFLTR), but he’s also hoping to trigger termination of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Florio mentions that if Kaepernick is able to prove this, article 69, Section 2 of the CBA allows for the agreement to be terminated prematurely in the event of proof of collusion.
A source with knowledge of the situation tells Florio that the straw for Kaepernick came after the Titans snubbed him and instead worked out Brandon Weeden, Matt Barkley, Matt McGloin, and T.J. Yates following the injury to Marcus Mariota.
- According to Jeff Legwold, Broncos QB Trevor Siemian is expected to undergo an MRI on his left shoulder Monday and the team fears he has a similar AC injury to the one he dealt with last year.
- Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Broncos WRs Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie both suffered right ankle injuries but X-rays on both came back negative. The plan now is for both players to get MRIs on Monday.
- According to Adam Schefter, the Jaguars still expect rookie RB Leonard Fournette to play this week, despite suffering a foot injury during Sunday’s game.
Big win today and tomorrow right back to work tomorrow I am happy to be a steeler and can't wait to reach number 7 this year.

“Well. You guys should’ve seen it coming. Taking him off the field, not giving the ball or the chance to reach his full potential,” Hiott wrote and later deleted, via SteelersWire.com.
