Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross was deposed Tuesday in Colin Kaepernick’s grievance against the NFL, according to a report by Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports.

Ross is the third owner deposed, following Jerry Jones of the Cowboys and Bob McNair of the Texans. According to Yahoo, Ravens coach Jim Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell have all been deposed.

According to the report, Kaepernick’s attorneys may be interested in comments Ross made in New York that appeared to tie his stance on player kneeling to President Donald Trump. Ross later clarified some of those comments, explaining that in his opinion, kneeling is an ineffective social justice tactic, a topic he said he cares passionately about.

The Dolphins considered Kaepernick when Ryan Tannehill was injured prior to last season, according to a source, but opted for Jay Cutler because of his familiarity with Adam Gase’s offense.

Kaepernick is out to prove some sort of collusion among NFL owners to keep him from returning to the league. Ross said at the NFL owners meetings in Orlando that he believes in players’ rights to speak their thoughts.

“That’s what America is all about,” he said.

Ross has also personally funded the Ross Initiative in Sports for Equality (RISE) to the tune of $7 million. RISE uses sports to bring people together to promote understanding, respect and equality and to promote race relations.
