Patriots owner Robert Kraft latest to be deposed in Colin Kaepernick collusion case, report says
As former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s collusion case against the NFL continues, Patriots owner Robert Kraft is the latest executive to be questioned in connection to the grievance, according to a report from TMZ.
Details haven’t been revealed when the deposition will take place or whether Kaepernick will be in attendance as he has been in the past.
Kaepernick’s collusion case claims that he has been unable to find a job with the NFL and has been blackballed by NFL owners as a result of kneeling during the national anthem as a form of social protest.
ESPN reported in November that Kraft would be asked to “turn over all cell phone records and emails” after Kaepernick filed the grievance.
“For a long time, I was told that this was a fool’s errand and that I was wasting money and that we weren’t going to win,” Christie said. “I think that hanging in there for as long as I did, spending the money that we did, is gratifying when the highest court in the land says you were right all along.”
He called the Supreme Court’s decision “incredibly gratifying, for sure.”
Orlando, Atlanta, and Memphis will host the other three franchises. Salt Lake City’s team will play at Rice Eccles Stadium.
The AAF plans to launch next February, with a 10-week regular season and two rounds of playoffs.
Head coach Pete Carroll noted the team would like to use the San Diego State product as a three-down back who can also stand inside in pass protection via Bell. “We’re gonna work real hard with his pass protection and make sure that he’s up to speed there,” Carroll said of Penny. “We’d like to see if we can make him available to us on all three downs. Kind of like we use Chris [Carson].”
“I’m going out there and I’m going to play football how I know to play football,” he said, via the Buffalo News. “I’m still working on a lot of things. Coach [Brian] Daboll’s going to help me out. Through this whole draft process, I felt like I’ve made a lot of strides. . . . As we progress through this rookie minicamp, and through the rookie developmental period, I plan to improve every day.”
