Happy 30th Birthday To Colin Kaepernick! The latest team that snubbed the free agent QB only adds to the disrespect

He added "other owners, teams and league officials also will be deposed" as part of the case, but the names listed above are confirmed at this time.

Per the collective bargaining agreement, collusion must be shown to have taken place between a team and the league office, or between multiple teams, and could include outside agents influencing teams to ignore certain players for various reasons.

By filing a grievance against the NFL, Kaepernick and his legal team are looking to prove that NFL ownership has agreed to a united front to not sign the 30-year-old quarterback in an effort to avoid public backlash and issues with sponsorships.

Jaish-e-Muhammad militant killed in Samboora gunfight
The official twitter handle of Jammu and Kashmir police said said that the slain militant was identified as Badar of JeM. Meanwhile, five personnel were injured when militants attacked a bus that was part of a CRPF convoy in Anantnag.

We reached out to the Seahawks for comment - so far, no word back.

Kaepernick, who turned 30 on Friday, previously said his agent reached out to all National Football League teams to make sure they were aware of his interest in playing this season.

Kaepernick opted out of his 49ers contract this offseason and has yet to get significant interest from teams, despite being more talented than are a handful of those now employed.

Israel offers to help Druze village in Golan Heights
Druze residents tried to cross into Syria, but were held back by Israeli soldiers, Israel's military said on Twitter. But it has bombed Syrian territory on a sporadic basis, sometimes in response to stray Syrian army fire.

Kaepernick has been a controversial figure since he first sat and then knelt during the national anthem before games with the 49ers in the 2016 season as a protest to denounce police brutality against African-Americans, social injustice and racial inequality.

Oakland Athletics' catcher Bruce Maxwell kneeled during the anthem last season. Kaepernick made headlines when he protested against the National Anthem last preseason.

That ESPN story said Kraft "politely rebuked" hard-line owners who were demanding that all players stand for the anthem.

Israeli jets bomb Syria arms depot: Monitor
JERUSALEM--Israel Air Force jets reportedly fired on an ammunition warehouse in Syria Wednesday evening. Israel and Syria have exchanged fire on numerous occasions in recent months.

Kaepernick filed the grievance in October because he felt the owners told teams not to sign the veteran quarterback.
