Colin Kapernick, Eric Reid and the NFL have been in an ongoing lawsuit regarding collusion for some time now. Well, it’s now officially over. Mark Geragos, who is the lawyer for Kapernick and Reid (who actually plays for the Carolina Panthers), released a statement announcing the settlement.

The actual terms of the agreement were subject to confidentiality but it must mean a significant financial resolution was agreed upon.
In a stunning move strongly signaling a financial settlement between Colin Kaepernick and the #NFL, Yahoo Sports has learned the QB has withdrawn his collusion complaint against the NFL. Sources previously said Kaepernick would only withdraw if a lucrative settlement was secured.

Reports are now circling that Colin Kapernick got paid a ton of money to settle this case.
Number NFL team officials are speculating to me is the NFL paid Kaepernick in the $60 to $80 million range.
