Colin Kaepernick Wears Kunta Kinte Shirt To Deposition For Texans Owner Bob McNair
Guess who’s coming to deposition?
Colin Kaepernick was seen wearing a Kunta Kinte shirt while attending the deposition of Houston Texans owner Bob McNair in his collusion case against the NFL Friday.
McNair was reportedly surprised to see Kaepernick at the deposition, which occurred at 9 a.m. in Houston, and lasted for about two hours. TMZ Sports obtained a photo of the free agent walking out after the deposition in a shirt with the name of the Roots character, and smiling.
Last season, during a meeting with owners, team executives and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, McNair made a comment in response to player protests saying, “We can’t have the inmates running the asylum.” After this comment was made, nearly every Texans player kneeled during the anthem at their following game.
Kaepernick had filed a grievance against the league in October, claiming owners and other high-ranking NFL officials— including Seahawks owner Paul Allen , coach Pete Carroll, Jerry Jones, and Robert Kraft— were colluding to keep him out of the league after his national anthem demonstration. The quarterback remained unsigned about halfway through the season.
