The NFL has reached a financial settlement with quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid.
Colin Kaepernick Has Worked Out a Confidential Settlement with the NFL https://t.co/soFYJ73isW

Kaepernick and Reid had a joint collusion case against the league. Kaepernick, who filed his grievance in October 2017, alleged that the NFL was working to keep him out of the league after he began kneeling during the national anthem three years ago.
Reid, who knelt with Kaepernick in San Francisco, had also been out of work until being signed by the Panthers during the 2018 season. Reid had also filed his own grievance against the league.
The players’ complaint, which alleged violations of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, was headed to a full hearing before an arbitrator later in February.
The word on the street is the payment was between 60 and 80 Million.
Number NFL team officials are speculating to me is the NFL paid Kaepernick in the $60 to $80 million range.

Just a tiny slice of the pie.
Surprised Colin caved so quickly, but not surprised he took the cash.
He obviously cares way more about money than he does the cause.
