Default The NFL settles collusion case with Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid

Quote:
In a somewhat surprising turn of events, former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Panthers safety Eric Reid have withdrawn their collusion lawsuit against the NFL and have reached a settlement.

Mark Geragos, the lawyer representing Kaepernick and Reid in their cases, released the following 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.

The NFL released the same statement.

The NFL Players Association responded as well



Colin Kaepernick has been out of the league over the past two seasons. This all started in 2016 when Kaepernick and Reid decided to kneel together during the pre-game national anthem as a way to protest systemic racial injustices.

Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the 49ers when head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch took over the team following the 2016 season. Reid remained with the team for the 2017 season, but the team didnít renew his contract after the season. Kaepernick filed his collusion case against the NFL in November of 2017. Reid followed Kaepernick by filing his collusion case in March of 2018.

Reid, a former Pro Bowl safety, was unable to sign with a team until the Carolina Panthers gave him a one year contract three games into the 2018 season. Reid played well enough for the Panthers that they gave him a three year deal.

Even with Reidís three year deal in Carolina ó which he signed while his collusion lawsuit was still active ó Reid was pessimistic that Kaepernick would ever be able to sign a deal.

Why did the NFL agree to settle with Kaepernick and Reid?
The NFL likely agreed to settle with Kaepernick and Reid because there was probably enough evidence for the NFL to look bad in court. That wonít be happening now that the settlement has been announced.

This gives Kaepernick and Reid the chance to recover on lost wages during their unemployment. Kaepernick should get a large sum of money as the result of his prolonged unemployment.

The amount of money that Kaepernick and Reid have received hasnít been announced due to a confidentiality agreement between the parties involved.

Whatís next for Kaepernick and Reid?
Even with the collusion case settled, Colin Kaepernick likely wonít be playing in the NFL. Heís been waiting for an opportunity for two years now ó if it hasnít happened yet, it wonít be happening anytime soon.

Kaepernickís activism wonít stop now that the settlement has been completed. He continued to donate his money to causes that he supported even while he was unemployed.

Reid will continue playing with the Carolina Panthers. His settlement with the NFL doesnít change his contractual status with his new team. Now he has the opportunity to put this behind him and focus on being one of the better safeties in the game. Reid continued to kneel all throughout the season with the Panthers ó former Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers said Reidís actions were not a distraction to the team in anyway.

You have no idea if he was going to win or not. But how quickly they settled lets me know there are some things the NFL didn't want coming out, regardless if they won or not. They didn't want it going to trial. This was settled quick for a case of this magnitude.

He's always been able to play football. The problem is nobody will sign him, hence the collusion lawsuit.

He did win.

The moment the judge allowed his suit to go on he won.

They wont let him work in their company anymore but they WILL STILL PAY HIM.

If Kap and Reid accepted the deal now its because the money felt like a win for them.
