Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid have landed a confidential settlement with the NFL.
Kaepernick and Reid had filed a lawsuit against the NFL claiming owners and league officials colluded to keep them off NFL rosters because they chose to take a knee during the national anthem at NFL games.
The league had adamantly denied blackballing Kaepernick … even after President Donald Trump publicly urged owners to fire any “son of a bitch” who didn’t stand for the anthem.
Kap’s attorneys, Mark Geragos and Ben Meiselas, issued a statement saying, “For the past several months, counsel for Mr. Kaepernick and Mr. Reid have engaged in an ongoing dialogue with representatives of the NFL.”
“As a result of those discussions, the parties have decided to resolve the pending grievances. The resolution of this matter is subject to a confidentiality agreement so there will be no further comment by any party.”
Reid was picked up by the Carolina Panthers during the 2018 season and on Monday, the safety signed a $22 million 3-year extension. Kaepernick is still a free agent.
