Colin Kaepernick, who popularized the controversial gesture of kneeling during the US national anthem, will likely be invited to a meeting with the NFL to discuss social issues and protests, the league said on Wednesday.
Kaepernick had been taking meetings with publishers recently at the NY office of his talent agency, WME.
Such a meeting may create a sort of surreal moment, as Kaepernick, in the midst of a collusion grievance against NFL owners, attends a meeting with players and owners over the very issue that he believes has caused him to be blocked from the league.
Kaepernick was invited to last week's gathering in NY by the players coalition but has not yet attended any of the recent meetings with the league.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color", Kaepernick said to NFL Media in August 2016.
But on August 26, Kaepernick began to sit and later to kneel during the national anthem, and it caught the attention of a nation. "There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder", explained Kaepernick in a post-game interview, referencing recent instances of police brutality. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and some owners reiterated their belief that players should stand for the anthem. Perhaps a book would fill in the blanks about why thinks he remains unsigned, balancing football with his work as a prominent figure fighting for social justice and the battles he faces as one of the most polarizing athletes of a generation. Trump's Vice President Mike Pence left an Indianapolis Colts game after players from the opposing team, the 49ers, kneeled during the national anthem. The kneeling has drawn the ire of President Donald Trump and others who say it is unpatriotic. "He's fired! He's fired!'"
An NFL spokesman said the league is looking forward to Colin Kaepernick's involvement in the next round of talks between players and owners about social activism.
