Denver Broncos general manager John Elway gave an hour-long deposition Tuesday to lawyers of Colin Kaepernick in the quarterback’s collusion grievance against the NFL, sources told 9NEWS.

The deposition was held at Broncos headquarters. Kaepernick attended the deposition as did lawyers representing the league and the players union.

Kaepernick is claiming NFL teams are colluding to keep him from playing quarterback in part because of his controversial protests against what he perceives as social injustice in this country by first sitting, then kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem prior to NFL games. Kaepernick demonstrated his position during the 2016 season while playing for the San Francisco 49ers. He has not played since he opted out of his contract following that season.
