Colin Kaepernick reaches settlement in National Anthem kneeling collusion case against NFL

    The NFL and lawyers for players Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid jointly announced Friday that they have settled a complaint of collusion by the players, who claimed football team owners blackballed them because they had protested by kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem.
    In a joint statement, the parties said: "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."

Related yesterday:

News came out that Kaepernick wanted $20 million per year to play football again. That's a ludicrous sum for a player who has been out of football this long and was fading fast before dropping out.

This is a "tail-between-his-legs" settlement.

From the article:

Quote
"team officials are speculating to me [that] the NFL paid Kaepernick in the $60 million to $80 million range."
In other words, they pulled a number out of their backside.

Like I pointed out before, the fact that he flamed out in 2016, sat out 2017 and 2018, and is still demanding $20 million a year in 2019 pretty much killed Kaepernick's case. If he got $1 million out of the NFL, he's lucky.

Besides, you're talking about a guy who hired Mark Geragos, who's won about one case in his whole career and is known for defending total sleazeballs like Gary Condit, Michael Jackson, Scott Peterson, and Susan McDougal (yes, a Clinton associate managed to get sent to jail, all because of his incompetence). There's no way Geragos was able to extract that much money from the NFL. Period.

(Oh, and by the way, this is the year the NFL starts bringing in about $170 million a year for the next decade from the Raiders, Chargers and Rams as part of those relocation deals. Even if it were a large sum, they're still in the black.)
