Texans Owner E-mails & Texts To Be Deposed In Kaepernick Lawsuit


Some owners and team and league officials will be asked to surrender all cell phone records and emails in relation to Kaepernick, who filed a grievance against the NFL last month, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Kaepernick has claimed that the NFL owners have colluded against him to keep him from playing in the league. ABC News reports that other owners to be deposed include the Seattle Seahawks' Paul Allen and the San Francisco 49ers' Jed York.

Kaepernick filed a grievance on October 15, alleging that he remains unsigned and a free agent because of team owners colluding against him following his national anthem protests.

It is important to note that teams are naturally not obligated to employ Kaepernick for many reasons, including his play on the field.

Kaepernick drew national attention last season when he knelt during the national anthem before games to protest social injustice.

The NFL's legal team has received requests for depositions and electronic information in Colin Kaepernick's collusion grievance, a league source told CBS Sports Friday.

By filing a grievance against the NFL, Kaepernick and his legal team are looking to prove that NFL ownership has agreed to a united front to not sign the 30-year-old quarterback in an effort to avoid public backlash and issues with sponsorships.

NFL owners and executives have been scrambling to determine the best response to players kneeling during the national anthem this season.

There's nothing wrong with McNair or any other owner not agreeing with players protesting, but it's dumb to not give a player a job because of his opinions and the fact that he's using his right to protest. Thus far, he has not been signed by an National Football League team.
