Congressman prepare to fight For Kaepernick
Johnson is curious if the league is abusing the anti-trust exemption to collude to keep players such as #Kaepernick from the field. Earlier this year, the NFL paid Kaepernick and former teammate Eric Reid a nearly $10 million settlement over allegations that owners colluded to keep them from playing on a team.
"It's possible that Congress can do something," Johnson told TMZ Sports. "Congress oversees the anti-trust exemption that we gave the NFL. The NFL is doing quite well with that anti-trust exemption, maybe it's time for us to take a fresh look at it."
