Kaepernick agrees to settle collusion case against the NFL

Kaepernick and former teammate Eric Reid, who both took knees during the national anthem before games in 2016 in a protest against systematic racism, had filed suit against the league for allegedly colluding against them to keep them from playing.

“For the past several months, counsel for Mr. Kaepernick and Mr. Reid have engaged in an ongoing dialogue with representatives of the NFL,” according to a statement by their lawyers Mark Geragos and Ben Meiselas.

“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,” said the statement, which was also released by the NFL.
