Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid have settled their collusion case against the NFL, but the payout is surprising.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the NFL paid Kaepernick and Reid less than $10 million in the settlement.
It’s unclear how the settlement will be divided and how much the players will receive once other fees are settled.
The amount of the settlement is far less than many anticipated, but the suit was viewed as a win for the players. The collusion case was filed after both men remained unsigned after they started kneeling during the national anthem to protest social injustices.
However, Reid was picked up by the Panthers this past year and signed to a three-year contract at the end of the season.
Kaepernick remains unsigned.
