Bill O’Brien now involved in Colin Kaepernick collusion case
Houston Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien is now involved in Colin Kaepernick’s collusion lawsuit against the NFL.
Houston Texans’ owner Bob McNair has already been deposed when it comes to Colin Kaepernick’s collusion lawsuit against the NFL.
Now head coach Bill O’Brien is being dragged into the lawsuit as well, according to Amy Dash.
Dash reported that O’Brien, along with Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy, are expected to be questioned as witnesses given the fact that both have publicly commented on possibly signing Kaepernick.
With Deshaun Watson now out for the season, O’Brien said the following about Kaepernick:
"“Colin Kaepernick is a good football player, hasn’t played in a while. These things are going to continue to be discussed,” per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle."
When it comes to McNair, he’s been instructed to turn over his email and phone records in order to aid in the investigation.
It’s very difficult to prove collusion, since there will need to be hard evidence to prove Kaepernick’s claim. From the outside looking in, it’s obvious that the NFL has blackballed Kaepernick, but there still needs to be evidence.
The Texans just signed Josh Johnson, who has a career quarterback rating of 57, while Kaepernick has thrown for 72 touchdowns, 30 interceptions with a rating of 88.9 during his career. He also has 2,300 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns on the ground.
It’s mind boggling that the Texans think T.J. Yates can play better than Tom Savage now that they’re giving him some first-team reps.. They’re pretty much the same player. Neither one will lead Houston to the post-season.
Next: Texans’ QB T.J. Yates getting ready to play?
Comment below and give us your thoughts on this situation. Do you think Kaepernick can prove that there was collusion?
