National Football League owners met last week in Atlanta and amended their policy on anthem protocol, requiring that all players stand for the anthem while on the sidelines.
"The only reason, and the owners will admit this, that they haven't signed him, is they're afraid of Trump, and they've colluded because of Trump", Geragos said.
Last week, the NFL enacted a new national anthem policy that stated players were not required to report to the field for the anthem, but if they were on the field and did not stand, their team would be punished. Kaepernick hasn't been signed by an National Football League team since that season. The owner said he became against kneeling when he felt that the message from the players was being interpreted as anti-military.
In a separate deposition, Stephen Ross of the Miami Dolphins admitted the president "changed the dialogue" surrounding the anthem protests.
The NFL player's has filed a grievance in his defense, finding a party guilty of basing its decision not to sign Reid on the fact he challenged the implementation of a club policy, the exact wording they used to mount Kaepernick's case against league owners.

The Journal reported that the depositions suggest the league was influenced to issue the new policy by Trump's activism on the matter. "Tell everybody, you can't win this one".
