ABC News reported the owners selected for depositions, which also include the Seattle Seahawks' Paul Allen and the San Francisco 49ers' Jed York, were chosen based on their public statements about either Kaepernick or the national anthem protest he launched in September 2015.
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.
You may or may not have heard about Colin Kaepernick's lawsuit against the NFL where he claims that the owners have colluded to keep him out of the league.
Kaepnernick led the 49ers to a Super Bowl and looked good in 2016, during his final season with the 49ers.
Kaepernick drew national attention last season when he knelt during the national anthem before games to protest social injustice.
The issue landed him on the cover of Time past year, but had calmed considerably until President Trump re-ignited the topic in September by asking a crowd in Alabama during a rally if they would "love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'get that son of a bitch off the field right now.'" The President added "He's fired" when talking about kneeling players. This caused a stir among the players that saw most teams that weekend protest in some fashion during the Anthem.
Kaepernick is not going through the NFL Players Association but instead hired Geragos, who has represented several high-profile clients, including Michael Jackson, former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield and musician Chris Brown.
