Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, February 15, 2019

The NFL and lawyers for Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid released a joint statement on Friday announcing the resolution of the players' grievances against the league. "For the past several months, counsel for Mr. Kaepernick and Mr. Reid have engaged in an ongoing dialogue with representatives of the NFL," the statement read. "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." Given the confines of the agreement, specific terms, including finances, of the settlement aren't known. Kaepernick, who last played for an NFL team in 2016, filed his grievance through the NFLPA against the league on Oct. 16, 2017. The former San Francisco 49ers signal-caller alleged collusion that denied him a job with a team after he took a knee during the national anthem in 2016 to raise awareness of racial inequality and social injustices.

NFLPAToday, we were informed by the NFL of the settlement of the Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid collusion cases. We are not privy to the details of the settlement, but support the decision by the players and their counsel. We continuously supported Colin and Eric from the start of their protests, participated with their lawyers throughout their legal proceedings and were prepared to participate in the upcoming trial in pursuit of both truth and justice for what we believe the NFL and its clubs did to them. We are glad that Eric has earned a job and a new contract, and we continue to hope that Colin gets his opportunity as well.

#5 Sounds like a decent payday. Even considering that he was statistically better than half (?) the QBs in the league when they blackballed him, he didn't have to get concussed to make any of that money. I'd call it a win.

Kaepernick is going to make more money as a professional SJW than he ever did as a professional football player.

This will no doubt prompt some MAGAt snowflakes into burning their NFL gear.

That's the owners' fault, not his.

There's probably a second agreement wherein the US military reimburses the NFL for snuffing Kaepernick

I hear the settlement was in the 60 - 80 million range.

That's an awful lot of money to give to a guy who simply couldn't land a job because he isn't any good.

And you know he isn't any good because you read it here. It was posted by guys who won the award for most improved on their JV team their junior year in high school.
