The attorneys for quarterback Colin Kaepernick are seeking to conduct a deposition with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell as part of Kaepernick’s collusion grievance, according to a person familiar with the case.

The request to depose Goodell comes in addition to requests for depositions with several team owners – including Jerry Jones of the Cowboys, Robert McNair of the Texans and Robert Kraft of the Patriots – and for certain teams’ electronic communications involving Kaepernick.

The desire to depose Goodell was first reported by ESPN, which also reported that Kaepernick’s lawyers are seeking to conduct depositions with a few officials from the league office.

The NFL declined to comment.

Kaepernick’s grievance accuses NFL teams of colluding to keep him out of the league. He has remained unsigned since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers after last season. He began the players’ movement of protesting during the national anthem last season.

The grievance would be heard and resolved by Stephen B. Burbank, a University of Pennsylvania law professor. Kaepernick is being represented in the grievance by Los Angeles-based attorney Mark J. Geragos, and the NFL Players Association has offered its support.

THE NFL Players Association and the league are not giving serious consideration to a settlement in the case involving Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension, according to a person with knowledge of the case.

The person said there’s little chance the union and league would agree to a settlement by which Elliott would serve a reduced suspension. ESPN reported Sunday that Elliott’s outside attorneys have attempted to reach a settlement with the NFL.

The NFLPA has taken the case to court on Elliott’s behalf and likely would have to sign off on any settlement. The second-year Dallas running back played Sunday against the Chiefs after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit granted the union’s request to keep Elliott’s six-game suspension by the NFL on hold pending Elliott’s appeal of a ruling last Monday by a federal judge denying him a preliminary injunction.

A three-judge panel of that appeals court is next in line to take up the matter, probably this week.

A.J. GREEN and Jalen Ramsey started yapping on the opening series. It escalated from there and nearly spiraled out of control.

It ended with both being ejected in Jacksonville’s 23-7 victory against Cincinnati. The altercation surely will result in league discipline, maybe even a suspension for Green, the Bengals’ star receiver.

With the Bengals trying to run out the clock late in the first half, Green jogged through his route and didn’t expect Ramsey, a cornerback, to knock him down. Green jumped up, grabbed Ramsey around the neck and slammed him to the ground. Green then delivered numerous punches to Ramsey’s helmet.
