No ‘smoking gun’ in Colin Kaepernick Jersey grievance, but don’t assume he doesn’t have one

Limited Womens Eddie Royal Jersey
Two months ago, back when NFL teams were passing over Colin Kaepernick during the preseason instead of the regular season, winning a collusion case against the league was expected to be an uphill battle, according to one legal expert. Now that a grievance has been filed on Kaepernick’s behalf, that phrase still applies.

Unless, Chicago sports law professor and Sporting News contributor Cari Grieb said, the exiled quarterback has concrete proof he has not yet shown, including in the grievance.

1. Mariota is tough — Mariota’s mobility was limited coming back from an injured hamstring, but he stood in the pocket and was efficient under pressure. He was rusty early with some high throws, while taking some several big hits. As odd as it may seem, he settled down after throwing a pick-six on the first play from scrimmage in the second half. Mariota finished 23 of 32 for 306 yards and a touchdown, delivering a strike for a 53-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Taywan Taylor while getting hit as the Titans took a 29-22 lead with 5:29 remaining.

2. Brissett can be a No. 1 quarterback — Brissett wasn’t quite quick enough to get to the edge as Titans linebacker Wesley Woodyard caught him short on a fourth-and-1 at the Titans 13-yard line with 2:19 remaining. He was good in his brief stint with the Patriots last year and has been solid in five starts for the Colts this season. It’s a small sample size, but Brissett will get a chance to be a starter. If not with the Colts, who are tied to Luck for the long-term, then next year.

Exotic smashmouth is pretty when it works — As the Titans were trying to run out the clock, Derrick Henry burst for a back-breaking 72-yard touchdown run with 47 seconds remaining. Henry finished with 131 yards on 19 carries and DeMarco Murray also grinded out 40 yards on 12 carries as the Titans had success running behind left tackle Taylor Lewan and right guard Josh Kline, who had a pancake block while pulling on Henry’s late touchdown run.
