Denver Broncos General Manager John Elway, was deposed by Colin Kaepernick’s attorney’s for one hour on Tuesday, as a part of the former quarterback’s collusion grievance against the NFL.
As Klis notes, “Kaepernick is claiming NFL teams are colluding to keep him from playing quarterback in part because of his controversial protests against what he perceives as social injustice in this country by first sitting, then kneeling during the playing of the national anthem prior to NFL games.
Interestingly, Elway was the last NFL executive to express an interest in Kaepernick as a quarterback, prior to the start of Kaepernick’s anthem protests.
Elway tried to orchestrate a trade with San Francisco, which would have brought Kaepernick to Denver.
In addition to Elway, Kaepernick’s lawyers have deposed Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones, Baltimore Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, Seahawks General Manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll, and owners Bob McNair and Stephen Ross.
