A group of 11 NFL players, including Malcolm Jenkins and Anquan Boldin, has invited Texans owner Bob McNair, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick to a meeting in Philadelphia Monday, ESPN.com reports.
There’s no word yet on whether the invitations will be accepted.
Update: Monday’s meeting has been called off, but the sides are looking to set one for a later date, ESPN’s Jim Trotter reported Sunday.
The sharply worded letter continued, “Regardless of our views, our disappointment and our frustration, we believe dialogue remains the only path forward, though our patience is being continually disrespected and is wearing thin.”
“My father got released yesterday. He is feeling so much better,” Alvin Attles III said in a text message to The Associated Press. “He says thank you for the well wishes. You will see him at the next home game.”
While details of Attles’ condition weren’t made public, his son said it wasn’t anything serious, an illness or life-threatening, just that “he’s dealing with being 80, it’s just wear and tear of being 80.”
