a good week for the Kaepernick collusion case

While the actual proceedings have yet to commence, the Colin Kaepernick collusion grievance has gotten stronger this week, thanks to three different circumstances.

First, the Browns have made it clear that they’re still looking to upgrade the quarterback position, via their bungled effort to trade for Bengals quarterback A.J. McCarron. The Browns had interest in trading for Kaepernick last year, and current Browns coach Hue Jackson had interest in drafting Kaepernick six years ago, when Jackson coached the Raiders. Once the Browns traded for Brock Osweiler and drafted DeShone Kizer, they seemed to be out of the market for a veteran quarterback. It’s now clear that they aren’t.

Second, the Broncos have benched Trevor Siemian for Brock Osweiler, who continues to find gainful employment in the NFL despite being unloaded by Houston and cut by the Browns, who are paying him $15.225 million this year to not play for them. The Broncos had interest in trading for Kaepernick last year, and they have ignored him ever since then.

Third, the Packers pursued quarterback Brian Hoyer, more than two weeks after coach Mike McCarthy angrily dismissed the possibility of pursuing Kaepernick or any other quarterback to enhance the one-two punch of Brett Hundley and Joe O’Houlicallahan. Kaepernick on multiple occasions (and twice in the playoffs) rans and threw circles around the Packers. Hoyer has one career game against Green Bay, completing four of 11 passes for 49 yards before suffering a broken arm last year while playing for the Bears.

3. NFL Owners to Be Asked for Phone Records, Emails Relating to Colin Kaepernick

At least three NFL owners—the Dallas Cowboys' Jerry Jones, New England Patriots' Robert Kraft and Houston Texans' Bob McNair—will be asked to turn over communications related to the collusion case brought forward by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Adam Schefter of ESPN noted Friday those owners are being deposed for cellphone records and emails in connection with the case. He added "other owners, teams and league officials also will be deposed" as part of the case, but the names listed above are confirmed at this time.

Mark Geragos, Kaepernick's attorney, confirmed last month a collective bargaining agreement grievance was filed that said league owners colluded against the QB after he started a trend by refusing to stand for the national anthem during the 2016 preseason, per Ahiza Garcia of CNNMoney.

4. Texans situation is particularly glaring

Since Kaepernick's skill set matches that of Watson. They are still in contention for the playoffs and have no reasonable alternative. They are backing up their totally inadequate starter Savage with Yates and McGloin.

I don't think the case is particularly strong for the other three teams though. Osweiller makes the most sense for the Broncos. Hoyer is better than Kaepernick and would have fit the Packers system better. The Browns are well the Browns and McCarron is a better quarterback as well.

It would take someone like Hopkins demanding that the Texans go out and get Kaepernick.
