Robert Kraft being deposed in Kaepernick collusion case

  Robert Kraft being deposed in Kaepernick collusion case One of the biggest figures in the entire Colin Kaepernick collusion case against the NFL and its teams is New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. Kraft is now the latest to be deposed in the case. “Another major NFL honcho is being deposed in the Colin Kaepernick collusion case — this time it’s New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft,” TMZ Sports reports.It goes without saying that Kraft’s politics and those he associates with will play a role in Kaepernick’s argument. After all, he is considered friends with President Donald Trump.

The Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid collusion cases could take a dramatic turn in the near future. I did not get a chance to catch it, but according to Pro Football Talk, Geragos said the case is “about to take a dramatic turn,” and, “ somebody has decided they were going to dime out the NFL for what

Colin Kaerpnick and Eric Reid 's lawyer suggested a witness can come forward with evidence of the NFL 's collusion against the two former 49ers Geragos only said that “ somebody has decided they were going to dime out the NFL for what they were doing," when asked to provide more explanation.

I’m skeptical, but maybe this gets interesting.

The Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid collusion cases could take a dramatic turn in the near future. Or, we’re just getting played by a PR-savvy defense attorney. I‘m leaning the latter, but I’ve got my popcorn ready if it’s the former!

Attorney Mark Geragos, who is representing both players in their collusion cases made an appearance on CNN Wednesday evening. I did not get a chance to catch it, but according to Pro Football Talk, Geragos said the case is “about to take a dramatic turn,” and, “somebody has decided they were going to dime out the NFL for what they were doing.”

Kaepernick collusion case proving that teams viewed him as a starting quarterback

  Kaepernick collusion case proving that teams viewed him as a starting quarterback Remember when quarterback Colin Kaepernick initially went unsigned after becoming a free agent in March 2017? As it turns out, it was.

To the surprise of some NFL observers, Reid is currently a free agent and not drawing much interest from teams. In other words, while discussion of collusion in the NFL revolves around various strains of contemporary political debate, the key to proving collusion as a legal concept is not about politics.

Colin Kaepernick's collusion case against the NFL could soon take a turn. In an appearance on CNN Wednesday evening, Kaepernick's attorney Mark Geragos gave indication more evidence will come He added, " Somebody has decided they were going to dime out the NFL for what they were doing.”

I remain skeptical that there is physical evidence the NFL colluded, but if there is a witness who will contradict the NFL, that makes this a whole lot more interesting. It does not guarantee Kaepernick or Reid will win their cases, but it would be more than we’ve seen to date in this case.

There have been reports of deposition statements from owners that Donald Trump’s comments in general and to them specifically have influenced their decision-making. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reportedly stated that Trump told him they can’t win, and, “Tell everybody, you can’t win this one.” Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said he was supportive of the players “until Trump made his statement.” According to the Wall Street Journal report, Ross noted that owners’ conversations with Trump were passed along during a league meeting, and that “I thought he changed the dialogue.”

We’re not a point where collusion has been proven, at least from the public standpoint. Given Geragos’ comments, I’m wondering if we see a Friday afternoon news dump on this case. It feels like something where he’d want to leave the NFL scrambling heading into the weekend.

Waiting for the 'dramatic turn' in Kaepernick case to come .
As noted on Thursday, the “dramatic turn” in the Colin Kaepernick collusion grievance promised by lawyer Mark Geragos presents its own drama. As noted on Thursday, the “dramatic turn” in the Colin Kaepernick collusion grievance promised by lawyer Mark Geragos presents its own drama. Either Geragos delivers or he doesn’t, and he’ll take the heat that goes along with writing a check that reality couldn’t honor if there is no dramatic turn.
