Allegedly a few NFL Players are joining forces and are considering sitting out the season unless former San Francisco 49ers players, Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid, are given contracts, Shaun King announced on Tuesday.

King says that players are weighing the option not to play this season and are aiming to get 25 percent of the NFL roster to sit out with them.

This is in rebuttal to the NFL new policy that players have to stand for the National Anthem or the team will be fined.

Kaepernick who started the movement was joined by Reid in the protest and was let go by his team as well.

Both have filed grievances against the League stating that team owners colluded against them to keep them unemployed.
