Roger Goodell Deposed in Colin Kaepernick Collusion Case; QB Present for Hearing
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell took part in a deposition Tuesday as part of Colin Kaepernick’s collusion case against the league.
Per Richard Maese of the Washington Post, Kaepernick was in the room for the entirety of Goodell’s deposition that lasted all morning.
Kaepernick filed a grievance against the NFL for collusion last October after he went unsigned by all 32 teams as a free agent since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March 2017.
We knew all along that we got multiple guys that can make plays, create and be explosive offensively, George said. We’re not going to put that pressure on just one guy. Obviously, my job is to help Russ, and with that, it’s helping the team. It’s my job to bring it and to bring it at a high level.
The focus from the Thunder after the game, specifically coach Billy Donovan, was that there’s a lot to clean up for Game 2. He mentioned multiple times they have to be better in Game 2. There was a sense that George’s hot shooting carried them in possibly a fool’s gold kind of way — that the shots went in this time, and if they don’t next time, then things might go the other way. But then again, maybe he’s just now getting introduced to Playoff P himself.
Matt Nagy gets a holiday showdown in his first season, and the Lions get a potentially important home contest against a team it should be equipped to beat. Matthew Stafford vs. Mitchell Trubisky ?
This rivalry has some fresh pizazz, thanks to the arrival of Alex Smith to the Redskins and the departure of Dez Bryant from the Cowboys. Whose Thanksgiving will Josh Norman aim to ruin this year? We lose that classic matchup, but get a potential Smith- Dak Prescott battle. We were robbed of a quality season from the Redskins last year thanks to a rash of injuries, so it’s somewhat difficult to know what to expect from this meeting, but we’ll get a familiar face on an opposite sideline: Orlando Scandrick will now line up opposite the fellows donning the stars instead of counting himself as one of them. Juicier than grandma’s home-baked ham.
As any well-traveled (or well-engorged) Thanksgiving veteran knows, the feast isn’t complete without dessert. Consider this meeting the absolute best slice of pumpkin pie.
