Kaepernick’s Lawyer: Elway Violated Collusion Case Gag Order With Kap Comments

The Denver GM said last week that the team had offered Kaepernick a deal and been rejected.

Football exec John Elway may have put his foot in his mouth with some comments last week.

While addressing the media, the Denver Broncos general manager said the team was not interested in signing Colin Kaepernick this year because the team had previously offered him a deal in 2016 and been turned down.

“We offered him a contract. He didn’t take it,” Elway said. “And as I said at my deposition – and I don’t know if I’ll be legally able to say this – but he had his chance to be here. He passed it.”

As Elway noted during the interview, it may not have been wise to speak on the matter for legal reasons. And, according to the attorney representing Kaepernick in his collusion case, Mark Geragos, it wasn’t.

“Mr. Elway, clearly he violated the protective order that the NFL has been wielding at me like a club at me,” Geragos said on his Reasonable Doubt podcast. “And he’s apparently suffering from some real brain trauma.”

Geragos went on to say that were the NFL owners not colluding to keep Kaepernick out of the league, he’d certainly be able to because he is still in prime playing shape.

“He works out like a banshee. I just saw him last week and physically he could not be in better shape. He’s in impressively good shape, ready to go at any moment,” Geragos said.
