Low settlement makes it far less likely Kaepernick ever plays in NFL again

Low settlement makes it far less likely Kaepernick ever plays in NFL again

The moment that attorney Mark Geragos said Colin Kaepernick could still play in the NFL even after settling his collusion grievance — and predicted that someone soon would “do the right thing” and sign him — I started to think it would never happen. The moment Andrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal reported that Kaepernick and Eric Reid received a total of less than $10 million to settle their collusion grievances, I became convinced that no NFL team will ever sign Kaepernick again.

The fact that I’m stating it this strongly likely means that someone will sign him this weekend. But that would be a shock. The league bought the past ability to shun Kaepernick for less than $300,000 per team, gladly welcoming the possibility that Kaepernick could sue them again, if he continues to not be gainfully employed by the NFL.
