Colin Kaepernick settles collusion case with NFL — Details Not Disclosed | Mashable

Colin Kaepernick argued NFL and teams colluded to keep him off the field; NFL denied.

NFL: 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.

News and Opinion Website Vox: Settlement doesn't force the NFL to sign either player to a team (Reid currently plays for the Panthers) but NFL Player Association rules could get Kaepernick a "financial award amounting to roughly double what he would have made if he had stayed in the league."
