Colin Kaepernick's collusion case against the NFL is progressing, with an unnamed league source telling ESPN that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, Texans owner Bob McNair, Patriots owner Robert Kraft, and others are being asked to turn over cellphone records and emails. Others, including Seahawks owner Paul Allen and 49ers owner Jed York, will be deposed in the case, the source says.
The owners are being involved due to public statements they made about Kaepernick or NFL players protesting. Kaepernick filed a grievance under the NFL collective bargaining agreement claiming he was deprived "of employment rights in retaliation" for his "advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality" in the US.
