The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid settled their grievance with the NFL for less far less than previously thought.  According to the report, the two will receive less than $10 million in the settlement.

Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid, the NFL stars who alleged the league’s teams colluded to keep them off the field after they led protests during the national anthem, will receive less than $10 million to settle grievances with the league, according to people briefed on the deal.

If the report is accurate than that is far less than the $80 million that Kaepernick and Reid were originally thought to have settled for.  This is very hard to believe.

If this amount is true then there has to be something else involved in the settlement that made it worth it for the two to settle.  Maybe there’s a guarantee that Kap will be signed by a team or something.
