Decision reached in collusion grievance brought by Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid against the NFL

The collusion grievance of former 49ers Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid brought against the NFL was resolved Friday — not with a bang, but with a confidentially agreement.

“For the past several months, counsel for Mr. Kaepernick and Mr. Reid have engaged in an ongoing dialogue with representatives of the NFL,” read a joint statement between the league and the players’ attorneys emailed to media outlets. “As a result of those discussions, the parties have decided to resolve the pending grievances. The resolution of this matter is subject to a confidentiality agreement so there will be no further comment by any party.
