Lawyer: Trump comments kept NFL team from signing Colin Kaepernick

Mark Geragos told the Straight Aim podcast on Tuesday the testimony provides proof of collusion.

“In this civil case, there’s no doubt that the existing coaches — and I’m talking about Super Bowl-winning coaches — have testified under oath that he’s a starting quarterback in this league, and so that’s mind boggling,” Geragos said.

More than a dozen NFL executives have been deposed by Kaepernick’s legal team, including owners of the Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans and New England Patriots, as well as Denver Broncos general manager John Elway.

“When you ask them … specifically why he isn’t being hired … they say because of the national anthem policy,” Geragos added. “The only reason — and the owners will admit that — they haven’t signed him is they’re afraid of Trump, and they’ve colluded because of Trump.”
