The Wall Street Journal reporting Kaepernick received less than $10 million in his settlement with the league. People briefed on the deal spoke to the Journal, but the terms remain confidential.
The former 49ers quarterback and Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid alleged the league’s teams colluded to keep them out of the league. While that is a bunch of money, that $10 million was no where near what people were speculating. Some NFL officials said that Kaepernick would receive anywhere between $60-$80 million.
A NFL spokesperson declined to comment to theWall Street Journal and an attorney for Kaepernick and Reid said they are respecting the confidentiality agreement.
