Kaepernick attorney Mark Geragos said that one NFL owner has admitted under oath to the about-face decision, because Trump began attacking the players who took a knee during the playing of the national anthem, Sports Illustrated reported.
"I think it could stir things up which is a problem", said new Carolina Panthers wide receiver Torrey Smith after day one of the second week of Panthers organized team activities.
A White House official did not dispute the testimony, per The Wall Street Journal.
The Journal report also said that Jones, Ross and Houston Texans owner Bob McNair testified that they are convinced the protests have hurt the National Football League financially.
Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said Trump's statement "changed the dialogue".
Earlier this month, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced the league would fine teams and league personnel who do not "stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem".

Last Week Moss Bros Group plc (LON:MOSB) Ratings
Shares of William Hill traded up GBX 1.70 ($0.02), reaching GBX 314.80 ($4.27), during trading on Tuesday, MarketBeat.com reports. ZPG Plc owns and operates home-related digital platforms in the United Kingdom.The company has 2.12 billion GBP market cap.
As it stands right now, the league has effectively silenced not only the players but an audience that many of them represent.
"President Trump, on the other hand, commended the new policy, which was seen by many as a response to his public crusade against the kneeling, and Vice President Pence tweeted out the news of the new policy and added, "#Winning".
"Let's (not) give (Trump) that much credit", Jones said, according to the report. Some of the best people I know and best care givers are people of color but they are not running from police and committing crime.
"When you ask them, and specifically, 'Why isn't he being hired?' and they say 'Because of the national anthem policy'".
Geragos also claimed to have extensive depositions proving that NFL executives view Kaepernick as a starting quarterback and have not signed him due to the national anthem protests.
The NFL may be facing another hurdle as it struggles to maintain the confidence of players and fans after rolling out a new, and highly controversial, national anthem rule last week.
