Colin Kaepernick's legal team is expected to ask for federal subpoenas for Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and top White House officials familiar with the president's anti-NFL position, Yahoo!

The aim will be a dive into the administration's political involvement with the NFL during Kaepernick's free agency and the league's handling of player protests, sources said.

Now, it looks like Trump could be using his ability to pardon as part of negotiations with NFL players who protest the national anthem.

The president spoke directly to a number of team owners, with at least one, Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, saying that Trump had influenced him to rescind his support for players who protested during the anthem.

"I don't like that", Trump said Friday as he was preparing to leave the White House for the G-7 summit in Canada.

However, to compel Trump to testify, Kaepernick's legal team will need to make a compelling, detailed argument as to the relevance and impact the testimonies would have on the grievance. Reid, 26, appeared in 13 games for San Francisco last season but is now unsigned and has also filed a grievance against the NFL. This one lifts me'.

However, no Eagles players kneeled during the anthem last season, a fact former Eagles wide receiver Torrey Smith pointed out on Twitter, calling Trump's decision to cancel the Eagles' visit "a cowardly act".

Kaepernick, who remains unsigned, filed a collusion lawsuit against the NFL for allegedly denying him "employment rights in retaliation" for protesting the national anthem.

Along with Jones, several other National Football League owners have been deposed as part of Kaepernick's collusion case, as well as National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell.

The NFL recently issued a new policy requiring players, coaches and personnel on the field to stand when the national anthem is played.
