Kaepernick, Eric Reid settle collusion grievances with NFL

Deal?  $60-80 million. We remain suspicious. The NFL is a business and by settling with Reed and Kaepernick they, the league, can walk away free from having to disclose “collusion” by blocking the quarterback from earning a living.

No athlete, not even an athlete of color, should be deprived from earning a living. The Muhammad Ali Supreme Court victory in 1971 is a case in point.

The supporters of the “take a knee” social protest movement are left without closure.
