Colin Kaepernick, NFL announce settlement in collusion case

Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick has settled his collusion case with the NFL.

Kaepernick’s attorney Mark Geragos announced on Friday in a statement that the two sides resolved the matter.

The league issued a similar statement.

“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.”

Mr. Reid is a reference to Eric Reid, the safety for the Carolina Panthers who also joined the collusion suit against the league.

Yahoo’s Charles Robinson notes that there was talk from a source previously that Kaepernick would only withdraw his suit if there was a lucrative settlement.

It’s hard to view this as anything other than disappointing from Kaepernick’s party. His whole stance of standing up for social injustice and racial inequality seemed to be at the cost of his earnings. Why would he agree to a confidential settlement now rather than let the truth come out? It seems that would better serve society, and now those who wanted to know the truth won’t get those answers.
