New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft will be deposed in connection with Colin Kaepernick's collusion case against the NFL, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Friday.

Citing a league source, Schefter said Kraft will be asked to surrender cell phone records and emails related to the investigation.

The report said Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, Houston Texans owner Bob McNair and others will be deposed.

Kaepernick, the former quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, filed a grievance against the NFL last month, alleging that he remains unsigned as a result of collusion by owners following his protests during the national anthem.
