The announcement came Friday, seemingly out of nowhere. The NFL, Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid have settled their joint collusion grievance, ending with little fanfare a case that has transcended the sport into the cultural debates of the country.

Kaepernick first filed the grievance in October 2017, saying that NFL teams were in violation of the anti-collusion clause of the collective bargaining agreement (CBA).
