I couldn't say.

I'm sure some say there are, and some say not.

Fair enough - i haven't seen the 'nots', but have seen several reportings of yes.

I don't think anyone has seen the waiver that Kaepernick was asked to sign, we only have what they say was in there.

I think it’s in the link on the last page along with the one the Bears use as standard... different formats but they both have similar language around the issue of employment.... there’s more stuff in the league one but legal counsel has been retained (Hawk) to review and advise....

I don't see a standard waiver to compare.
But I don't see anything odd in the one they offered Kap. It's clearly intended to waive liability from the workout itself, ie hurting your knee or something, not liability for not being hired after the workout or for not being hired before the workout.

I don't see anything nefarious or crazy overbroad.

This is the one they posted that the Bears use

I think the waiver provisions do the same thing.

That’s what I thought. But I haven’t been called to the bar. Thanks for your insight.

But, as a lawyer, if that were sprung on your client at literally the last minute, would you advise him to sign it? Or would you want time to review it more closely?


It literally took me two minutes to analyze it.
It’s very standard.
I’d look at it first then say it’s ok or not.

I’m just glad that this NFL/Kaep kabuki is so inclusive of everyone.
You’ve got the radical lefty who has roots in both sides of the racial conundrum. He’s fighting the good fight, brother! Putting his MILLIONS to proper use.

And the establishmentarian and oppressive patriarchal Ownership. It’s like we are in the 1830’s!

And introducing!!! The rap guru who came out of the streets, worked his hustle, became a billionaire, and now rubs elbows with The Man.

All this is doing is stirring the pot. All 3 entities get exposure.
It’s genius, and divisive.

Sure, because you have nothing at stake.[/quote]

I don’t know what you mean by that.
If I’m advising a client I have his interests at stake.
And it wouldn’t take any lawyer more than a quick look to see if there was a problem. Which I don’t see.
It’s not a tricky legal issue.
