Kaepernick's Lawyers Request Deposition Of York, Other Owners In Grievance

Kaepernick's Lawyers Request Deposition Of York, Other Owners In Grievance

According to ESPN, the Dallas Cowboys' Jerry Jones, Houston Texans' Bob McNair and New England Patriots' Robert Kraft are just three of those being required to give depositions and turn over all related information.

Kaepernick, a 29-year-old free agent, worked out with the Seahawks in May.

Kaepernick, who has been without a team since his contract with the 49ers expired in March, filed the grievance in October.

Regardless, it looks as if it's about to be a huge showdown, and one can only imagine what will end up being aired from those cellphone records and emails.

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.

He said the England U21 striker, who turned down a chance to play for the Super Eagles, deserves his chance with the Three Lions.

National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell has stated on multiple occasions this season that Kaepernick is not being blackballed.

Kaepernick started a national conversation about political activism by athletes last season when he made a decision to sit, and then kneel, during the anthem to bring attention to mistreatment of African-Americans by police.

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 NFL Player's Association has extended an offer to help Kaepernick "as we do all players", but Kaep chose to forgo their aid and to hire Geragos instead.

A recent HBO Real Sports/Marist poll found that 51 percent of Americans oppose proposed league rules that would require players to stand during the national anthem, compared with 47 percent who supported such a rule.
