He con­tin­ued to kneel last sea­son, with the sup­port of his team­mates.

The NFL Play­ers As­so­ci­a­tion said Fri­day that it did not know the terms of the new set­tle­ment.

“To­day we were in­formed by the NFL of the set­tle­ment of the Colin Kaeper­nick and Eric Reid col­lu­sion cases. We are not privy to the de­tails in the set­tle­ment but sup­port the de­ci­sion by the play­ers and their coun­sel,” the state­ment said.

“We con­tin­u­ously sup­ported Colin and Eric from the start of their protests, par­tic­i­pated with their lawyers through­out their le­gal pro­ceed­ings and were pre­pared to par­tic­i­pate in the up­com­ing trial in pur­suit of both truth and jus­tice for what we be­lieve the NFL and its clubs did to them,” it said.

“We are glad that Eric has earned a job and a new con­tract, and we con­tinue to hope that Colin gets his op­por­tu­nity as well,” it said.
