Last month, news surfaced about Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid finally reaching a settlement with the NFL regarding their collusion grievances. Though the main concern of the resolution – the amount of money distributed – has been kept confidential via a nondisclosure agreement, reports have emerged of what the duo received from the league. According to the Wall Street Journal, the tandem reached an agreement under $10 million USD, while details of how Kaepernick and Reid will be splitting the settlement remain unknown.
