The NFL has announced that Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid’s collusion grievances against the league have both been resolved.
The two sides are bound to a confidentiality agreement, so it’s not known of any details of the settlement, though it’s likely that Kaepernick and Reid both received significant financial compensation.
“We continuously supported Colin and Eric from the start of their protests, participated with their lawyers throughout their legal proceedings and were prepared to participate in the upcoming trial in pursuit of both truth and justice for what we believe the NFL and its clubs did to them,” the NFL Players Association said in a statement Friday.
“We are glad that Eric has earned a job and a new contract, and we continue to hope that Colin gets his opportunity as well.”
Reid has found a new ball club in Carolina while Kaepernick has yet to resurface in the wake of his widely-publicized anthem protests.
Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman has heard “speculation” that Kaepernick will net between $60-80 million from the settlement.
