Kaepernick case heating up

You may or may not have heard about Colin Kaepernick’s lawsuit against the NFL where he claims that the owners have colluded to keep him out of the league. I’m not sure what kind of a case he’s got, but clearly the wheels are moving.

According to Adam Schefter, the attorneys want the email and cell phone records of at least three owners, including Bob Kraft, Jerry Jones and and Bob McNair.

“Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Texans owner Bob McNair, amongst others, will be deposed and asked to turn over all cell phone records and emails in relation to the Colin Kaepernick collusion case against the NFL, a league source confirmed. Others owners, teams and league officials also will be deposed, but those individuals have been confirmed for now,” Schefter writes.

This is very interesting. On one hand, they might find nothing to indicate a situation of Clarence Walker getting kicked out of the Beatles (“Hey Paul, let’s get rid of Clarence and steal all of his good ideas.”) On the other, what if they do find something? What if they do find evidence of some sort of collusion?

What kind of lawsuit would emerge from that? How much would the NFL have to pay in damages? I’m no attorney, but I’d love to know some possible outcomes if they do indeed find that two or more owners colluded to keep Kaepernick out of the league.
