Former San Francisco Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has resolved the grievance he filed against the National Football League (NFL), the NFL and attorneys for Kaepernick announced Friday.

The joint statement says a confidentiality agreement prevents both parties from discussing the matter further:

“For the past several months, counsel for Mr. Kaepernick and Mr. Reid have engaged in an ongoing dialogue with representatives of the NFL. 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.”

In October of 2017, Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against the NFL, USA Today reported at the time:

“After remaining largely silent while languishing as an NFL free agent for more than seven months, quarterback Colin Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against league owners under the collective bargaining agreement Sunday.”

During his stint in the NFL, Kaepernick sparked national controversy by kneeling in protest during the playing of the National Anthem prior to games.
