CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports free agent Colin Kaepernick has been granted access to "almost 100,000 documents" in his collusion case against the NFL.
Per La Canfora, Kap's legal team is reviewing communications from "numerous league and team employees." That includes "high-ranking NFL officials, coaches, and general managers from teams like Dallas, Baltimore, Tennessee and others who signed quarterbacks and worked out quarterbacks in season." The viability of Kaepernick's lawsuit is still unclear, but it's still alive four months after being filed. Feb 6 - 6:41 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said the team has discussed free agent Colin Kaepernick, but have no plans to sign him.

"Everybody gets discussed," O'Brien said in his best coachspeak. When asked if signing Kap was a realistic possibility, O'Brien replied "I like the guys that we have and we'll continue to try to coach them." Kaepernick is worlds better than any of the healthy quarterbacks on the Texans' roster, but the ship seems to have sailed for good. The matter has simply become too polarizing, not to mention Kap is suing the NFL for collusion. Instead of making their football team better, the Texans seem doomed to unimaginably bad quarterback play.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, owners Jerry Jones, Robert Kraft, and Bob McNair will be deposed and asked to turn over all cell phone and email records in relation to the Colin Kaepernick collusion case against the NFL.

Things are heating up here. Others will be deposed as well, according to Schefter, but those three have been confirmed. Jones is known to be the head honcho among NFL owners, with maybe even more power than commissioner Roger Goodell. McNair is already in hot water with the players regarding his "inmates" remarks, and his team just passed on Kaepernick in order to sign Matt McGloin and T.J. Yates in the aftermath of Deshaun Watson's torn ACL.

NFL insider Howard Balzer was apparently joking when he "reported" the Texans were willing to work out free agent Colin Kaepernick.

We really wish we had not passed this one along, but there was zero reason to believe a professional NFL lifer like Balzer was "joking," especially considering the straightforward tone of his tweet. We have sourced Balzer in the past, but will not do so going forward. Kap was and is a free agent who seems nowhere close to getting an NFL workout. His collusion lawsuit against the NFL is still moving forward.

Howard Balzer reports Texans owner Bob McNair has "signed off" on working out Colin Kaepernick following Deshaun Waton's season-ending knee injury.

Although probably an unknown name to many Rotoworld readers, Balzer has long been plugged into NFL circles. Ignoring all the politics — literal and figurative — Kaepernick would be a no-brainer addition for the Texans. Tom Savage arguably isn't good enough to even be on a 53-man roster. He plays the game of football at a glacial pace. There's no question Kap's play was in steady decline for the 49ers, but he'd also give the Texans an infinitely better shot at winning than Savage. Considering what a flashpoint Kap has become, it's not as simple as just football, but on paper, it would make the Texans considerably better, and keep their playoff hopes alive in the soft AFC South.

Coach Mike McCarthy emphatically shot down any possibility of the Packers signing free agent Colin Kaepernick.

"Is there any idea of bringing in Colin Kaepernick to compete for that backup job?," a reporter asked McCarthy, who fired back, rhetorically asking, "Did you just listen to any question I just answered!? I got three years invested in Brett Hundley, two years invested in Joe Callahan. The quarterback room is exactly where it needs to be." He's not interested; not that we expected the Packers to be.

Using the collective bargaining agreement, Colin Kaepernick has filed a collusion grievance against the NFL.

Kaepernick is pursuing his claim with his own legal team, but will have the assistance of the NFLPA. Profootballtalk reports Kap isn't just hoping to prove collusion in his case, but "trigger termination of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement" under a clause in the CBA (Article 69, Section 2). It's not debatable that teams have passed on Kaepernick for far worse players. The question is whether he can prove it was deliberate collusion on behalf of the owners.

According to Ray Lewis on Inside the NFL, the Ravens didn't sign free agent Colin Kaepernick because of a "racist gesture" his girlfriend posted on Twitter last month.

There's a lot to unpack here. "We [Lewis and Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti] were talking about giving this kid an opportunity to get back in the NFL," Lewis said. "I have been fighting for this kid behind the table like nobody has. ... I've never been against Colin Kaepernick. But I am against the way he’s done it. Then, his [girlfriend] goes out and put out this racist gesture and doesn’t know we are in the back office about to try to get this guy signed. Bisciotti has said it himself, 'How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?' ... We were going to close the deal to sign him. And it never happens because that picture comes up the next day." The picture can be seen at the following link. It sounds like a fabricated story to give the Ravens an excuse.

Jaguars EVP Tom Coughlin said he is "not interested" in Colin Kaepernick.

In Coughlin's defense, when your depth chart is topped by Blake Bortles and Chad Henne, you are pretty much set. With training camp done, it is even more unlikely Kaepernick finds a job this season.

Jaguars owner Shahid Khan said he would "absolutely" be okay with signing free agent Colin Kaepernick if EVP Tom Coughlin advised it.

However, it doesn't appear Coughlin and GM Dave Caldwell feel Kaepernick makes them better, at least at the moment. Khan is really the first owner that has come out and said he'd welcome Kaepernick's addition. Kap getting a job doesn't seem imminent. The Ravens and Seahawks have made the most effort in seeing what Kap can offer but ultimately passed on the idea.

Seahawks GM John Schneider said Colin Kaepernick is "committed to football."

Seattle is the only team which has shown concrete interest in Kaepernick this offseason, bringing him in for a visit in May, and Schneider left that meeting with no questions about the quarterback's interest in playing. "We had a great visit with him," Schneider said. "We wanted to be able to sit down and visit with him and go through the process with him knowing we know exactly who he is, exactly where he stands and we can go to him if needed." With backups Trevone Boykin and Austin Davis reportedly struggling in camp, perhaps the Seahawks will decide Kaepernick is "needed" in the near future. Until then, the wait continues.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec "can’t see" the Ravens signing Colin Kaepernick at this point.

Zrebiec believes if the Ravens did not make the move last week "when there was more uncertainty about Joe Flacco’s back" and "when Ryan Mallett was struggling mightily," they are not going to sign him now. With Baltimore seemingly out of the running and Miami signing Jay Cutler, it is looking more and more likely Kaepernick will not find a job during camp.
Mon, Aug 7, 2017 10:53:00 AM

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports free agent Colin Kaepernick's "name was raised" in the Dolphins' front office as a potential Ryan Tannehill (knee) contingency.

Per Anderson, the Dolphins have discussed Kap as "potential insurance" in case Tannehill's knee injury proves to be serious. Kap would not start over Matt Moore. No matter how serious the talks actually were, it's notable the Dolphins' front office is already putting out a Kap trial balloon. Of course, it could also be Kap's team trying to put pressure on the Ravens to make a decision.

According to ESPN's Dianna Russini, both coach John Harbaugh and GM Ozzie Newsome "support" the Ravens signing free agent Colin Kaepernick, but "have met resistance" from owner Steve Bisciotti.

That's exactly how it has felt in recent days. Harbaugh has continued to express a desire to get Kap in the Ravens' building, but Baltimore fans have flooded team headquarters with messages against the quarterback after he knelt for the National Anthem last season. Bisciotti recently said he is "praying about" the decision. It shouldn't take this long to figure it out. Russini reports the Ravens are now looking at Aaron Murray as they cycle fringe quarterbacks through the roster. Kaepernick would be a heck of a fit football-wise in Baltimore.
Wed, Aug 2, 2017 10:46:00 AM

Owner Steve Bisciotti indicated that whether the Ravens sign free agent Colin Kaepernick will be determined at least partly by fan reaction to the potential deal.

The Ravens have reportedly been "inundated" by fan messages since coach John Harbaugh leaked word the team was considering signing Kaepernick. "I hope we do what is best for the team and balance that with what is best for our fans," Bisciotti said. "Your opinions matter to us. … We’re very sensitive to it, and we’re monitoring it, and we’re trying to figure out what’s the right tact." Bisciotti said he is praying about the decision and asked fans to "pray for us."
