New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft is among the NFL team owners to be deposed and asked to turn over records in the Colin Kaepernick collusion case. A league source tells ESNP’s Adam Shefter the request for documents includes emails, cellphone records and other paperwork. Kaepernick filed a grievance against the NFL last month accusing all 32 team owners of collusions against signing him to a contract. The former 49ers quarterback took a knee during the national anthem during the 2016 season to protest police brutality against African-American and racial inequality. The issue drew the attention of President Donald Trump who suggested players who kneel during the anthem be fired.
