Kaepernick's attorney has stated that he thinks Kaepernick will rejoin the NFL.
Former second-string 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, has reached a settlement deal with a group of NFL owners accused of conspiring together — and with President Donald Trump — to lock Kaepernick out of the league over his pre-game anti-racism protests.
CBS News reports that both Kaepernick and the NFL's attorneys announced late Friday that they'd reached a deal, estimated to be in the high tens of millions.
"For the past several months, counsel for Mr. Kaepernick and Mr. Reid have engaged in an ongoing dialogue with representatives of the NFL," the two parties said in a joint statement released Friday evening. "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."
All parties are prevented from revealing details of the settlement, by the settlement's terms, but various news reports put the settlement between $60 million and $80 million split between the two players. Those reports are, of course, unconfirmed.
