Robert Griffin III’s new job could provide further proof that the NFL is colluding to keep Colin Kaepernick unemployed.

Baltimore Ravens owner Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh will be questioned at the team’s facility Thursday as part of Kaepernick’s collusion grievance against the NFL, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
It’s possibly not a coincidence that the Ravens disclosed that they’ve worked out Griffin that they’ll sign him next week one day before these depositions. With the Ravens offering Griffin a contract last year (but not offering one to Kaepernick), Newsome and Harbaugh already were going to be grilled about their preference of Griffin to Kaepernick. Making it known that Griffin soon will be joining the team provides a degree of transparency that can’t make things worse, and that possibly will make things better. With Griffin’s eventual addition to the roster out in the open, neither Newsome nor Harbaugh will be tempted to get cute (which witnesses often tend to do) when asked about Griffin vs. Kaepernick. The fact that they’ll be signing Griffin slams the door on any effort to engage in verbal swordplay regarding what would have been hypothetical or potential interest in Griffin.
Kaepernick has the option to attend, like he previously did at Houston Texans owner Bob McNair’s deposition in Houston.

Newsome’s and Harbaugh’s depositions ironically come one day after the Ravens announced they agreed to a one-year deal with former No. 2 pick Robert Griffin III.
