Still waiting for the Kaepernick/Reid news

In the aftermath of Memorial Day, attorney Mark Geragos claimed that someone was about to “dime out” the NFL in connection with Colin Kaepernick’s collusion grievance. With Independence Day approaching, we’re still waiting for the dime to drop.

More recently, Geragos promised news on the Kaepernick and Reid cases “next week,” which seemed to mean last week but perhaps technically means this week.

“I will just say stay tuned that next week there will be news on Kap and on Eric Reid,” Geragos said on a podcast released Saturday, June 23, but taped before that. “That’s all I can say right now. I’m going to say, as you’re listening to this, there will be news next week.”

Geragos likely wasn’t referring to the news that the NFL hopes to short-circuit the entire case via a summary judgment motion (more coming on what that means). So the questions remain: Where is the news? And who, if anyone, is going to “dime out” the NFL?

  1. You’re waiting because it’s your job, the rest of us moved on a long time ago.

  2. It was announced that a team will sign him within 10 days. Announced last October haha

  3. Maybe, just maybe, and I know this seems crazy….but maybe the lawyer was not telling the truth

  4. Collusion,we talking collusion.the nfl never colluded against Kap,he just wasnt that good anymore to waste money on.the real collusion is trump and his good friend Putin,now thats collusion.

  5. “I will just say stay tuned that next week there will be news on Kap and on Eric Reid,” Geragos said on a podcast released Saturday, June 23, but taped before that. “That’s all I can say right now. I’m going to say, as you’re listening to this, there will be news next week.”

    The news is…. “Case Dismissed!”

  6. He’s got nothing, and he never had anything. He has proven time and time again that what he’s doing is using scare tactics to try and flush out anybody from the NFL who will give him something he can use.

    This case was dead on arrival, and it’s still dead today.

  7. How long can they string this case out?
    Not being American, I don’t know how your courts work.

    ————————————

    Slowly but with ever increasing levels of ridiculousness

  9. “Who will drop a dime on the NFL?”…….My guess is Joe Hockhart drops the dime if it ever falls.

  10. He hoped threats would make the NFL blink and rush to settle. The NFL knows he has nothing and hasn’t budged. You lose Mark. Time to move on to the next blood sucking relationship.

  11. This whole someone is going to “dime out” the NFL was pure speculation, rather an assumption…..no one ever stated that they had a NFL person ready to corroborate anything. More like someone has hopped on Kap’s/Reid’s bandwagon with full support and they are waiting for some sort of told you so vindication to legitimize article after article after article …..It’s not coming as this whole thing was a farce from the get go.

    Team 1: Did you talk to 49er’s?
    Team 2: Yeah
    Team 1: Did they tell you he’s not the player he was?
    Team 2: Yeah
    Team 1: Told me the same thing.
    Team 2: What did your scouts say?
    Team 1: He’s not the player he was.
    Team 2: Same here. You going to sign him? He’s only asking $10,000,000.
    Team 1: A lot for a backup. We don’t have cap space. We’re you going to pass.
    Team 2: Same here
