Lawyer for Colin Kaepernick, Eric Reid promises more developments soon

Getty Images

The lawyer representing former 49ers Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid in their collusion case against the NFL is continuing to promise big developments.

Attorney Mark Geragos said on his Reasonable Doubt podcast that big news is coming.

“I will just say stay tuned that next week there will be news on Kap and on Eric Reid. That’s all I can say right now,” Geragos said on the podcast, which was released on Saturday. “I’m going to say, as you’re listening to this, there will be news next week.”

Geragos previously promised a dramatic turn in the case, hinting that there could be someone inside the NFL ready to testify on behalf of the players. There’s been precious little news coming out of the case since then, which raises the obvious question of whether Geragos overplayed his hand with that promise. But he’s continuing to claim that a big development is coming for his clients.

  1. He keeps saying that. Yet nothing. Meanwhile Tre Boston is out there talking about how hard the ‘in the box SS’ market is and how he and a bunch of other guys are not getting anything but low-ball and back-up offers.

  2. Would dropping the case because they don’t have a leg to stand on be considered big news?

  3. Just here for the comments by PFT’s noted trust of contract attorneys and civil litigators.

  4. I promise to bleed every single red cent each has left until they are broke and destitute.

  5. Is this the guy that was saying DT was going to be indicted “any day” for Russian collusion, 18 months ago??

  6. Please don’t…most of us don’t care. We just want to watch football on Sundays while drinking beer and eating hot wings. We can watch politics anytime during the week.

  7. The league is going to crush Geragos.
    Clark Hunt, Bob Mcnair and Jerry are leading the charge and will make sure these troublemaking, disrespectful players will cease their “protests”, or will be on the corner panhanfling soon.
    The Owners will certainly show by example , who exactly are the shot callers and the true bosses.
    Make no mistake, Kaep and Reid screwed up, and now the league will crush any other player who forgets what his role really is,and where his place exactly is.

    ________________________

    You have summed it up perfectly!

  9. The Owners will certainly show by example , who exactly are the shot callers and the true bosses.

    Reid and Kaep are gone, forget it. They will never draw another paycheck from a team or the league.

    The Owners are going to make it very clear on what will happen to any other players, who decides that they want to rise up and challenge them.

    Those Escalades, diamond bling, gold front grills, and high dollar kicks can be taken away in a split second, and then its back to the old way of living for the inmates

  10. They are working on a Three Stooges routine which they are going to perform in their next press conference.

  11. I sure see a lot of Mueller “witch hunt” references from people who don’t know what either a “guilty plea” or a “conviction” is…

  12. Ive been waiting with bated breath for months wondering what was going on with these two guys. No, seriously I was.

  13. “Attorney Mark Geragos said on his Reasonable Doubt podcast that big news is coming.”

    Nothing says professional lawyer like “Ill break big news on my podcast”. The guy is a high priced ambulance chaser. That being said, if Reid and Kaep are dumb enough to be bled dry by this clown, then they are the real fools.

  14. “You guys just wait and see, because Im gonna do something, its gonna be big too. Just watch. Because something big is gonna happen. Its going to be a bombshell. Yup, something will happen. Uh huh. Its all going to be clear soon. Just wait and see.”

    I think its because they do know what Mueller is supposed to be looking for and has yet to find anything at all on it. A couple of sideshow findings on unrelated stuff from a decade ago is not the mission he was hired for. Those guys should certainly be punished for those old crimes because there were still crimes. But that’s a pretty hollow victory for those who are rooting for collusion charges or any sort of election related anything that could be used for any sort of effective attack on what they are after really.

  18. You guys who hate Trump should have lived at some point during the first 200 years of this country’s existence….back when morals ruled and “anything goes” wasnt a thing.

  19. BREAKING NEWS: Kap is still unemployed and still threatening owners for work and Johnny Manzeil is off his party rock tour and working in Canada!

  20. Let’s see these players pool their money together for this cause they care oh so deeply about because the nfl will cut no corners for expenses to win this case

    Most of us couldn’t care less about Kaepernick or want to see his fake martyrdom flame out but the comments on these stories as well as the Florio’s complete lack of awareness is usually entertaining. Since he kicked this “update” to MDS it might mean that even Florio is getting tired of his crusade being mocked.

  22. What happened to deposing the president? What happened to the proof of collusion? If you had anything, you would have told us what it was by now. Congrats on continuing to bill both your clients.

  23. I think its because they do know what Mueller is supposed to be looking for and has yet to find anything at all on it.

    The investigation is far from over, and no summary findings have been publicly revealed. There are more than a dozen witnesses cooperating with Mueller, and no one (outside of the investigation) has any idea what they’re discussing or pursuing.

    So how exactly do you (or anyone) know what the investigation has found and what hasn’t been found?

  24. You guys who hate Trump should have lived at some point during the first 200 years of this country’s existence….back when morals ruled and “anything goes” wasnt a thing.

    Yeah morals were on big display during the days of human slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, open hostility towards nonwhites, women, and gays. Those were really some pure times for America.

  25. NFL teams won’t hire me so I’m going to sue for collusion. I’m really good and can throw the ball really far, plus I don’t kneel during the anthem. I demand to be on an NFL roster!

  26. Kaep and Reid will be too old to play, long bankrupt and living under a bridge, and this lawyer will still be telling them that any day the case will be broken open.

    Pretty easy. Mueller, Strzok, Page, Clinton, Rice, Obama, Lynch et-al. are desperate to get Trump out of office on some fake frame-up before he prosecutes them all for the multiple felonies they have all committed. If Mueller had anything we’d have heard it by now.

    The facts show only one thing: The only collusion with the Russians was with the democrats at all levels of government.

    See you in November.

  32. You’ve all cried wolf too often. I’ll believe it when I see it. Where’s that “major development” that was going to drop that the Head Writer alluded to over and over a month ago?

  33. This whole thing is just so stupid. Plain and simple. There was no collusion. Independently we are ALL sick of you. You had no right to protest on paid time by the owner and fans. End of story.

    Stormys lawyer said same thing
    =====================================

    Ask Michael Cohen and Trump how bored they are with the Stormy Daniel’s Lawsuit. At this stage, it’s a foregone conclusion that Cohen will become very familiar with the interior of a prison cell. Remains to be seen whether it will sink Trump or not. I’m betting it will if he lasts that long.

  35. The media has said Kap should be a starter. And it was crap! He is 4-20 in his last 24 starts. Not good. Foles sits but he starts. Really?

  36. It’s a beautiful thing that Kap is spending his dwindling fortune on lawyer fees when all he has to do to secure a job is not be a jackass.

  37. That’s nice…. i just don’t want anymore politics creeping into sports or music, etc…that is my time to push the world out of my mind for a bit…. I went to the wells Fargo center last week and saw U2. It was the most political concert that I ever went to….the whole show was subliminal or not so subliminal politics …..when I go to the circus I just want the clown to make me laugh….I don’t want to know his thoughts on the immigration policies of our country…if I want to hear about politics I can tune into CNN or fox news

  38. Not sure where in the quotes it says “big” news is coming. This is so stupid. There is no collusion or conspiracy needed for the smart owners of an NFL franchise to know employing these two losers would be bad for their business, a business that relies on mostly blue collar joes forking over lots of hard earned money. Blue collar joes who don’t like these 2 idiots.

    That the Irish faced awful treatment 100 years ago blows up the original posters point that “morals ruled” back then — so thanks for inadvertently supporting my argument.

    Your other post about Peter Strzok and Obama (lol) is so hopelessly unfounded and unsubstantiated and clearly ripped directly from the same 2-3 websites desperate heave to discredit a federal investigation that I won’t even bother responding.

    See you in November, indeed.

  41. Whoever brought up the SS market by Tre’ Boston is spot on, and it was hilarious to hear. Vaccarro, Boston, Reid and others are all without jobs. Or, the hilarity that was AJ Green saying he supports Julio Jones quest for a new deal, but he’s “set for life” with his and isn’t actively trying to get a new deal. But, Florio said white people are racist for thinking that the rich shouldn’t ask to get richer. I’ve complained to NBC about this. PFT is no longer what it once was. Fact is, Kap and his followers got politics involved, and not that they are, well, so long suckers.

  42. Big news – We are starting a CG saturday morning kids show with Kaep and Erick doing voices for the two main characters. It’s a show about two buddies that are never invited to play with their peers.

    Irish where captured like animals, chained into holds of ships and brought over as property (at least the ones that didn’t die on the way)? Had their wives/husbands/children ripped away and sold off whenever their owners felt like it? And when the war to free them was over they were forced back onto the same land to work as virtual slaves, with no rights to vote, strung up by lynch mobs, and shot in the back by law enforcement officers with little or no provocation?

    You’re right, I missed that particular KKK meeting. And the coloring/comic book that was issued by Aryan Nations.

  45. Laughing at the folks telling commenters who are posting opinions that they don’t know anything about the case but then immediately post an opinion of their own which has been proven wrong or is a straight up lie…about the case.

  46. How can there be collusion when there are so many social justice owners? Kaepernick is clearly better than any of these team’s backup QBs: NE, MIA, NYG, SEA, MIN, CAR, ATL. Kraft, Ross, Lurie, Mara, Tisch, Allen, Wilf, Tepper, and Blank should put their money where their mouth is and sign Kaepernick, explain why they haven’t signed him, or admit to being all bluster and no substance.

    You sure about that? “Why don’t fans support players seeking new contracts”.

    “Third, it’s would be foolish to not consider the racial component, especially against the backdrop of the ongoing anthem debate. Some (many) white fans surely resent (consciously or not) the fact that African-American men parlay God-given physical skills into the kind of money and fame that the average white person never will enjoy, no matter how hard he or she works. So when African-American players try to get more money that some (many) white fans think they don’t really deserve, those fans get even more upset, reasoning that the players who already have more than they should should simply be happy with what they’re getting.“

    Pretty disgusting stuff. White guilt.

    If we are going to play the ‘how do you know’ game then it applues just as much to your claims that they do have something. How do you know?

    What I do know is the predetermined verdict crowd keeps claiming there is something and then when confronted the fact that there is nothing goes back to square one with that ‘because they need to keep looking still’. And as time continues to go by with no change this just keeps looking sillier each day.

  53. Yeah I know that is u2 ‘s deal but doesn’t mean I’m into it. Wife wanted to go.

  54. Kaepernick is clearly better than any of these team’s backup QBs: NE, MIA, NYG, SEA, MIN, CAR, ATL.

    ————————————————————————————
    Show me where Kaepernick has said he would accept backup money or the veteran’s minimum for the chance to backup and prove himself. Show me anything! Truth is you can’t. I’m sure we could pick gnat poop out of pepper and prove than there are 3rd stringers not as good as CK. Fine. But remember, 3rd stringers and backups accept the minimum salaries for the opportunity to get developed into a future starter outside of a precious few. Kaepernick wants 10M+….no one is going to devote that kind of cap space to a backup QB. Teams can’t afford to. So then the argument becomes this….is Kaepernick, who has never thrown for even 3400 yards in a season, who has a career 59% completion pct….who’s career QBR is below 90…who runs a read option offense no longer run in the NFL…better than 32 starters?? That’s the question.

  55. Not a fan of Kap but if the NFL did conspire to keep him out of a job he needs to be compensated. If you are in a Right To Work State this would be illegal not to mention wrong. Agree or disagree with him everyone deserves the right to work and make a living. If it turns out every NFL owner just don’t want him because they believe that he would hurt their franchise then he shouldn’t get a thing.

  56. Just watch when u folks are watching these foreign soil games and the NFL Employees hide in their locker rooms during the National Anthem and then trip each other to stand tall for that foreign countries anthem. THIS IS THE N-F-L!!!!!!

  57. I always wince when someone mentions “talent,” or “gifts” of a genetic nature, as one’s reason for success.

    it implies some kind of superiority.

    the biggest factor is environment.

    literally where your mother birthed you.

  58. The players who kneel tell you that they are not disrespecting the flag or the military, that they are calling attention to unfairness in the justice system. Trump and his mindless followers choose to believe that Kaepernick is lying about his motivation, even though he contributed more than a million dollars to community causes related to his protest and even though he had the guts to protest knowing that it would damage his career.

    Those of you who believe that kneeling is disrespectful have great opportunities for voicing your own protest at ever church in the United States.

  59. I honestly challenge whether Kaepernick truly wants to play, or does he want to fight this fight for other reasons. All I hear is what other people say about his wants and desires. I never see a direct quote from CK himself saying he wants to play….that he’ll accept a minimal contract to prove himself….I don’t see videos or photos of him staying in shape….nothing!

    So what gives?

    This is an example of failing to separate desire and fact. Yes you want to see Cohen go to jail, but that does not make it a fact or foregone conclusion that he is. You have already made a supposition that he is guilty when thus far despite the raid if his offices and supposed cooperating witnesses etc they have yet been unable to file even a single charge. I wont say that there aren’t some (but not yet conclusive) grounds to believe there is a chance they will find a way, Only that their very aggressive work thus far has not produced that. Thats not to say he isnt guilty of something, no one has any grounds to claim that either. Right now nothing is a ‘“forgone conclusion”, this is all still wait and see and anyone saying they actuall know anything fir sure is speaking their desires not their knowledge.

  63. How dare these guys fight for human rights. How dare they stand up for disenfranchised people who may be relatives, friends etc. How dare they use their platform to try to bring the country closer together. Keep these nuisances away from our sacred game and suspend anybody who speaks up on anything pertaining to the real world.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Just spitballing here but it might be because that anything remotely negative towards Trump or his team has been leaked days or even weeks before any official action/comment is made by the Mueller team. If there was a smoking gun piece of evidence it would be on the front page of the New York Times within 24 hours of discovery…and all the leaks have not dealt with actual wrongdoing concerning collusion, just the old unrelated stuff they happened to find.

  65. Anytime “Kaepernick” is in the title, the phony patriots hitch up the mule-drawn carriages and show up to express their disgust about peaceful protest.

    “I hate me some peaceful protest.”

    Or…their current roster situation has nothing to with anthem protests and teams have decided they don’t think they’re good enough to sign to their 53 man roster. There are dozens of players who sat or knelt currently on NFL rosters. If it was all about denying anthem protesters….why are there literally dozens of players who knelt currently signed?? Because it’s about talent versus expected salary. A compelling argument can made that Kaepernick had two good seasons 5 years ago and DCs figured him out long ago and he’s not all that effective for how much money he’s demanding. Reid is a better talent, and would probably get signed closer to the season had he not sued the NFL. But then again, there’s 3 other veteran Safeties not signed right now waiting for jobs too. Some are younger and cheaper.

    How dare these guys fight for human rights. How dare they stand up for disenfranchised people who may be relatives, friends etc. How dare they use their platform to try to bring the country closer together. Keep these nuisances away from our sacred game and suspend anybody who speaks up on anything pertaining to the real world. This world is only for good ole’ boys, we need to bring the 1800s and 1960s back and make this country right

    They can fight for everything they believe when they are not “on the clock” at the stadium before the game, during or after.

    The league is going to crush Geragos.
    Clark Hunt, Bob Mcnair and Jerry are leading the charge and will make sure these troublemaking, disrespectful players will cease their “protests”, or will be on the corner panhanfling soon.
    The Owners will certainly show by example , who exactly are the shot callers and the true bosses.
    Make no mistake, Kaep and Reid screwed up, and now the league will crush any other player who forgets what his role really is,and where his place exactly is.

    Stormys lawyer said same thing
    =====================================

    Ask Michael Cohen and Trump how bored they are with the Stormy Daniel’s Lawsuit. At this stage, it’s a foregone conclusion that Cohen will become very familiar with the interior of a prison cell. Remains to be seen whether it will sink Trump or not. I’m betting it will if he lasts that long.

    ——————————
    This is an example of failing to separate desire and fact. Yes you want to see Cohen go to jail, but that does not make it a fact or foregone conclusion that he is. You have already made a supposition that he is guilty when thus far despite the raid if his offices and supposed cooperating witnesses etc they have yet been unable to file even a single charge. I wont say that there aren’t some (but not yet conclusive) grounds to believe there is a chance they will find a way, Only that their very aggressive work thus far has not produced that. Thats not to say he isnt guilty of something, no one has any grounds to claim that either. Right now nothing is a ‘“forgone conclusion”, this is all still wait and see and anyone saying they actuall know anything fir sure is speaking their desires not their knowledge.

    ————————-

    I’m saying if Vegas was offering odds on Cohen going to prison, the smart money is going with Cohen doing time. You would bet that he won’t do time? Seriously? Or are you just mumbling incoherently for no reason?

    ——————-
    I have the good sense not to bet. To me this is not a sport where there there are two teams trying to beat each other, or at least it shouldnt be. The guys getting all militant and treating it like a contest are the real problem. And they have become so emotionally vested that they have lost their ability to see that.

  72. If we are going to play the ‘how do you know’ game then it applues just as much to your claims that they do have something. How do you know?

    What I do know is the predetermined verdict crowd keeps claiming there is something and then when confronted the fact that there is nothing goes back to square one with that ‘because they need to keep looking still’. And as time continues to go by with no change this just keeps looking sillier each day.

    I’ll say it again: 5 convictions (all pleaded guilty), 15 individual indictments, and 3 corporate indictments. In an ongoing (read: not finished) investigation.

    You people still claiming “there is nothing” either willfully aren’t paying attention or just refuse to believe that guilty pleas and convictions do not arise out of “nothing.”

  73. I thought kicking Sarah Sanders out of that restaurant established that it is OK to discriminate on the basis of political beliefs. I can’t understand the kneeler groupies logic. One one hand they say no one can face any consequences for political beliefs. On the other hand they say it is OK to discriminate against people whose political beliefs the kneeler groupies don’t like…

    Still whining? Maybe if you take off you hate glasses you would see the Country is doing better than ever, at least in the eyes of the working men and women. Glad you get to enjoy your morning, whilst the people defending this country are hard at work (even for the whiny slackers)

    I’m not whining, I’m just speaking the facts.

    and by the way, I’ve been fortunate to have been employed for 39 straight years and still am, and I am a defender this country. I don’t however defend our president, as he mocks the very essence of the US Constitution.

  75. If standing “respectfully” during the national anthem is so important why don’t they close the concession stands while the band plays and monitor every fan to ensure that they are properly saluting the flag?

    Ban kneeling in church on the basis that it is disrespectful.

  76. If Eric Reid had ANY BRAINS WHATSOEVER he would keep his Mouth shut until atleast the first week of August at the Earliest. Their are multiple good Safetys still unsigned, Tyvon Branch ranked as the 6th best Safety in NFL per PFF he’s still out there, M. Mitchell is still out there so is Tre Boston and Kenny Vaccaro, of course so is Eric Reid. Teams will be signing these guys among other players right before training camp kicks off like every year, at this point its almost as if Reid is purposing burning bridges trying not to get resigned.

    ——————-
    Everything you are trying to make something of was a sideshow charge (tangent to the investigation) of old crimes these folks committed away from the election and not connected to it. They even tried to get all those guys to turn evidence (your assumed cooperating witnesses) and if they have gone on to just prosecute them then it has already turned out they had nothing to offer related to the election. The investigation was to look into collusion and election related crimes and they still have nothing, zip, zero on that. Its a hollow victory that is not what was being hoped for and I suspect that anyone who has resorted to celebrating small consolation prizes as victories has accepted in their heart, and whether they are honest enough to admit it or not, that the real thing they were looking for is just not happening.

    Coming back to the actual article, I hate to say it, but this lawyer’s actions after being just this type noise for this long are also very revealing and its clear he has nothing too.

  92. Frankly, I’m already shocked. Flabbergasted. Appalled. All of these things, I have experienced.

    Truly, truly impressed. Geragos, I’ve been…inspired.

  93. I have an idea what the owners should do with Kaepernick. Someone should sign him, keep him for one week, then trade him to another team. Then that team should keep him for a week, then trade him, too. Keep doing that until every team has had him on their roster and traded him at least once. When he gets traded back to the team which originally signed him,they should bench him and let him rot there.

    Dumb question. People can agree and disagree on different issues. Your word choice here demonstrates either a complete lack of facts awareness or a poor attempt to promote an agenda you don’t even understand. The kidnappers in that scenario you mentioned are the drug dealers and sex traffickers that are pretending to be related to the young children they are going to sell if handed their asylum court date and asked to return for processing. In order to try and paint Trump as a monster you ignore the real monsters and through your ignorance you are actually assisting them. Good job. Can we get back to football now?

    Just like your hero Trump you relate a ridiculous right wing conspiracy about drug dealers and children because the actual fact that Trump’s obnoxiously cruel policy of separating families who LEGALLY seek asylum at the border does not fit your foolish agenda.

  107. ..ur type is out burning flags. doubt you even own one

    ——–

    actually, I currently own 2 flags (a 50 star flag and a 48 star flag).

    I am also responsible for having one burned. It was my fathers’ flag that draped his casket in 1968 (deceased veteran), when I was still a child. My mother gave it to me about 20 years ago, it was in rough shape due to it having been attacked by bugs while being packed away in a closet. I heard about a veterans group that disposed of flags through a special ceremony, during which they were burned. Although I would like to have kept it, the right thing to do was to give it up so it could be disposed of properly.

    so yeah….I guess I’m the flag burning type.

  108. That policy was in place during the reign of King Obama. You people live on lies. It was enacted because of child trafficking.

    —–

    and generally cases where child trafficking was suspected, or a claimed parent-child relationship did not exist, was when children were separated from adults.

    The Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act had widespread bipartisan support and was signed into law in 2008 by George W. Bush. This law covers children of all nationalities except Canadians and Mexicans. Central American children who are apprehended trying to enter the United States must be released rather than detained. There is no part of this law that requires separation.

    Under Obama, parents entering illegally generally were not charged….and thus families stayed together. The AG’s decree on April 11th instituted a zero-tolerance policy (and specifically states that this policy supercedes all other policy) whereby parents were being held on charges of illegal entry, and since children cannot be detailed, the result is separation.

    I’m not going to claim that I know the answers to all of the problems and issues, and I’m not trying to claim that the zero-tolerance policy is wrong, but certainly it appears that this administration had no real plan how to deal with the mass separation of families created by the zero-tolerance policy that they instituted.

  109. 345snark, that’s the thing. “mass separation” is media created hysteria designed to rally people who act on feelings without verifying any data. The separations are actually under 350 and not the 2k or 12k numbers tossed out there by people trying to make their point seem more logical. The political arguments on this site and actual political sites are all pointless because very few participants have bothered to verify any data at all. The allegiance in politics is now roughly the same as a bitter sports rivalry. There is little thought involved and the media and politicians on both sides exploit it for power and profit.

  110. FinFan68…..I wholeheartedly agree with political argument comments.

    however I am curious where you got the ‘under 350’ number. I just looked at the Homeland Security website and their press release of 6/23 notes that they have reunited 522 children that were separated and expected 16 more to be reunited within 24 hours. and that doesn’t even count those still in custody.

    You Trump lackeys insist on pushing your FAKE NEWS. The head of HHS reported 2,047 children still separated from their parents. Where did you get the 350 number? (as if only 350 would be all right). Sean Hannity? Laura Ingram? Ann Coulter. Look to that trio of right wing charlatans for a continuing stream of the most vile fake news.

  112. I also meant to mention, that Homeland Security notes on that same fact sheet (which is about zero-tolerance prosecution and family reunification) that as of June 20th, they had 2053 separated minors in HHS funded facilities.
