Jones says Trump affected anthem policy

Kaepernick sparked a nationwide protest movement after he took a knee during the national anthem to raise awareness of inequality and police brutality

He has been without a team since leaving the San Francisco 49ers in March 2017, with Reid, who joined his teammate in kneeling, also still unsigned.

Mark Geragos, attorney for Colin Kaepernick, claims that an unnamed National Football League owner has testified under oath that he has been persuaded by President Donald Trump's comments to not hire the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback.

The NFL announced last week that it has adopted a policy that would fine teams and league personnel who do not "stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem". Reid's attorney also represents Kaepernick in his own collusion grievance, which was filed against the National Football League in October. And he continued over the coming months to lambaste the league, at one point calling for an unspecified change in "tax law" because of all the public tax breaks and incentives many NFL teams receive, because of the anthem protests. "There may be evidence that an owner decided not to sign Kaepernick because of his demonstrations, but it's not evidence that there was any agreement between multiple owners not to sign him".

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said Trump's statement "changed the dialogue".

Those deposed were required to turn over phone and email records related to Kaepernick, who has not played since the 2016 season.

Furthermore, Geragos also strongly hinted that a legal challenge would be mounted to the NFL's controversial new national anthem policy.

"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", Geragos said on the podcast. The quarterback has said he was protesting social injustice issues.

King asked if Johnson would support all player protests. Both McNair and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft expressed grave misgivings about Trump's anthem stance but were unwilling to defy the president.
