Kaepernick lawyers seek depositions of Robert Kraft, other National Football League owners

Colin Kaepernick texans

Per multiple reports, the NFL legal team received requests from Kaepernick's representation for depositions and electronic communications from a number of teams and league owners.

NFL owners - including Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys, Robert Kraft of the New England Patriots and Bob McNair of the Houston Texans - will be deposed and asked to turn over cellphone records and emails related to former quarterback Colin Kaepernick's collusion case against the league, ESPN reported, citing an NFL source.

ABC News reported other owners to be deposed include the Seattle Seahawks' Paul Allen and the San Francisco 49ers' Jed York.

Colin Kaepernick remains unsigned by an National Football League team, despite being 30 years old and having a better resume than more than half of the quarterbacks now employed by National Football League teams.

Last month, he filed a grievance against the NFL's 32 owners charging them with colluding to keep him sidelined over his protests. He is being represented in his collusion grievance by Los Angeles-based attorney Mark Geragos, with support being offered by the NFL Players Association.

Multiple people dead following collision, explosion on Highway 400
Schmidt said there were "more than two" fatalities and several people were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Firefighters let the fuel burn itself out before tackling any remaining hot spots and are still at the scene, Schmidt said.

He and his legal team contend that the reason no team has signed him has been in reaction to his social activism, which began during the 2016 preseason when he first sat then kneeled during the playing of the national anthem.

The affidavit claims Trump and Vice President Mike Pence continued to engage in "various public relations stunts created to retaliate against Mr. Kaepernick and other players that have joined in Kaepernick's peaceful protest".

NFL players who have demonstrated during the national anthem have said they are protesting racial inequality, but not the flag or the anthem itself.

The quarterback's lawyers seeking to interview several owners and pursuing email and text messages from numerous teams and the league office, according to the published report.
