Colin Kaepernick, Eric Reid, And NFL Reach Settlement — May Sign With Patriots Or Panthers

It may just be a “win-win” for Colin Kaepernick after settling with the NFL and reports say he may soon sign with the Patriots or Panthers.  Reid recently signed with the Carolina Panthers and the players’ lawyer Mark Geragos and Ben Meiselas expect Colin to sign soon.

The men sued the NFL for collusion after they participated in kneeling protests as a way of bringing attention to racial discrimination and police brutality.

The full details of the NFL settlement won’t be revealed through Geragos, but the attorneys did release a statement on their clients’ behalf.

The statement reads as follows:

“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.”

Though we don’t have facts, estimates say that the settlement could be anywhere between $ 60 and $ 80 million. Needless to say, Kaepernick and Reid should be very happy with their financial settlement as well as their return to the game.

Some believe that with Cam Newton’s shoulder surgery, there’s a good chance of seeing Colin Kaepernick sign with the Panthers. Reid has been picked up for three years, and it seems fitting the two should go to the same team.

There’s no question that this was a huge win for both Kaepernick and Reid and it’s also a bold statement for those who supported Colin in boycotting the SuperBowl earlier in February.

According to Mark Geragos, there is no doubt that Kaepernick wants to play in the NFL again. The win comes at a time that there is great scrutiny on Jussie Smollett and his claim of being victimized in a MAGA racist and homophobic attack.

Civil rights leaders and U.S. politicians showed sympathy with Smollett with some referring to the attack as a modern day lynching. Now there are conflicting reports that Smollett allegedly had his hand in staging and orchestrating the attack.

His attorneys deny those claims.

Kaepernick’s victory comes at a time when the political ice is thin and at any moment it could cave in. Though things have been racially tense for the beginning of the year, Kaepernick’s and Reid’s victories should help the pair move forward with their lives and careers.

Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid Settle Collusion Lawsuits Against NFL

(NEW YORK) — Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid have settled collusion lawsuits against the NFL.

In a three-sentence statement released Friday, the NFL 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.”

Kaepernick’s lawyer tweeted an identical statement.

Kaepernick and Reid filed collusion grievances against the league, saying they were blacklisted because of protests during the national anthem at games. Kaepernick has not played in the league since 2016, while Reid missed three games last season before signing with Carolina.

Colin Kaepernick And Eric Reid Settle Case With NFL For Undisclosed Settlement

After nearly two years of a back and forth battle with the NFL, Colin Kaepernick has settled his lawsuit with the league.

In 2016, in response to the police killings of innocent and unarmed Black men, Kaepernick started kneeling in protest during “The Star Spangled Banner.” The whole thing caused a national discussion on whether his actions were unpatriotic. The NFL instated a rule that forbid players form kneeling during the anthem. (The rule has since been suspended.) The NFL was so perturbed by Kaepnerick’s actions that there were rumblings that they weren’t planning on renewing his contract. He opted out of his contract and filed a collusion case against the league, along with teammate Eric Reid, who also knelt with Kaepernick. Reid stayed on for the 2017 season but they didn’t renew his contact after that season.

Now, two years later, the league has settled the case with Reid and Kaepernick, suggesting that there was a good chance they would lose the case if it had gone to trial.

Kaepernick’s lawyer Mark Geragos released this statement regarding the matter.

While Kaepernick and Reid aren’t speak about the amount of the settlement, NFL officials told columnist Mike Freeman that the number is between $ 60-80 million.

Check out the reaction from the people on the following pages.
