Colin Kaepernick's settlement with NFL reportedly worth less than $10m
- Former QB and Eric Reid alleged they were blackballed from league
- Kaepernick has not played in NFL since end of 2016 season
Colin Kaepernick’s settlement with the NFL over allegations he was blackballed from the league earned him and former teammate Eric Reid less than $10m, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback alleged NFL owners conspired to keep him off the field because of his protests to draw attention to racial inequality and social injustice issues. When a settlement was reached last month, many believed it was worth tens of millions of dollars. The Wall Street Journal does not say how the money was split between Reid and Kaepernick. Reid now plays for the Carolina Panthers, while Kaepernick has not played since leaving the 49ers at the end of the 2016 season.
