Malcolm Jenkins Says NFL Team Owners Declined To Meet With Players

On Saturday, ESPN reported that "a coalition of National Football League players has extended an invitation to [Houston Texans owner Bob McNair], commissioner Roger Goodell and unsigned quarterback Colin Kaepernick to a Monday meeting in Philadelphia at which they hope to address players" "immediate concerns before additional progress can be made'".

Jenkins was looking to build upon the meeting that players had with team owners almost two weeks ago, when McNair made his egregious "inmates" comment. "The press release was the first time we heard of any invite".

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins says the next proposed meeting between the owners and players to discuss social justice initiatives has been canceled. That also was news to Kapernick attorney Mark Geragos, who told Slate, "We specifically reached out to the [NFL Players Association] and to the Players Coalition, and we were verbatim told that Colin had no role".

Jenkins also told reporters that he didn't know why Kaepernick was not in attendance. "We look forward to him joining the conversation", league spokesman Joe Lockhart said last week.

Michigan's Jim Harbaugh: QB Brandon Peters has '51-percent' chance of starting
Peters' only other action was in a mop-up role in a 28-10 win over Purdue on September 23, when he did nothing but hand off. Starting quarterback Wilton Speight suffered a back injury in that game and is not expected to return this season. ".

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Jenkins and retired receiver Anquan Boldin have been in constant communication with the league office, and the two sides remain interested in continuing the dialogue via a face-to-face meeting.

"At this point, the ball is in their court", Jenkins said.

As one of the founders of The Players Coalition, Jenkins says the league didn't accept the Coalition's invitation, citing scheduling issues. We don't really enjoy doing this.

"I feel like we've done everything that we've needed to do to work in a collaborative effort with the league", Jenkins said Sunday, following a 33-10 win over the 49ers. "And we are waiting for follow up from meetings a few weeks ago, and are still waiting". He added that the free agent quarterback "is open to participating in, and discussing the ideas he has led, at the next meeting in a meaningful way".
