Former NFL player Colin Kaepernick was all smiles while walking out of his NFL collusion meeting with Houston Texans owner Bob McNair.
Kaepernick has been receiving media attention during his trip to Houston. The former 49ers quarterback attended training camp with Head of Sports Performance at William Paterson University, Josh Hidalgo on Thursday and also attended a deposition with McNair for his collusion case against the NFL.
TMZ Sports snapped a photo of Kaepernick following the deposition with his attorney, Ben Meiselas and Kaepernick appears to be in good spirits. The deposition comes after Kaepernick filed a grievance against the NFL with claims team owners and other high-ranking NFL officials worked together to blackball the quarterback from the league following his widespread protest of the national anthem.
McNair agreed to be a star witness in the case. Kaepernick’s legal team from Geragos & Geragos also subpoenaed Seahawks owner Paul Allen and coach Pete Carroll along with Jerry Jones and Robert Kraft.
Kaepernick was slowly removed from the NFL after the 2016 season following his widespread protest of the national anthem. The Baltimore Ravens coach recently admitted that a U.S. military official advised him not to sign Kaepernick over the protest.
Kaepernick remains passionate about making a return to the NFL.
