QB Colin Kaepernick Reportedly Present for Depositions for Harbaugh and Newsome

Colin Kaepernick was present for Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome and coach John Harbaugh’s depositions Thursday as part of the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback’s collusion grievance against the NFL, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

The interviews were set to take place at the Under Armour Performance Center, according to a Pro Football Talk report Wednesday.

A Ravens spokesman declined to comment Wednesday, saying, “Legal proceedings of this nature are confidential and cannot be commented on publicly.”

Earlier Wednesday, the team announced it had agreed to a one-year deal with former Washington Redskins and Cleveland Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III. With starter Joe Flacco dealing with a back injury last training camp, the Ravens spoke to both Kaepernick and Griffin about potentially signing with the team.

Despite their public flirtation with Kaepernick, the Ravens decided not to sign him. Team officials acknowledged that they heard from fans both for and against the potential signing.

Kaepernick became one of the most polarizing athletes in the country after he knelt during the national anthem before games in 2016 to protest treatment of African-Americans and other minorities.

Kaepernick hasn’t gotten another NFL job after he opted out of his 49ers contract before the 2017 season.

He filed a grievance in October, alleging that the NFL is colluding to keep him out of the game.
