LEBRON JAMES SAYS HE HOPES KAEPERNICK GOT A TON OF MONEY OUT OF THE NFL (VIDEO)
The news of the settlement came 24 hours after a seemingly false report of Colin Kaepernick demanding $20 million to play in the Alliance of American Football league.
Kaepernick and a former teammate, Eric Reid, had reached a surprise legal settlement with the NFL, which the duo had accused of colluding to keep them out of the league.
In a joint statement issued by the league and the players’ lawyers on Friday afternoon they said that “the parties have decided to resolve the pending grievances” and that “there will be no further comment.”
According to reports Kaepernick may have received between $60-$80 million to drop the suit.

On Saturday, Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James was asked by reporters about the settlement and he revealed how he stood and kneeled with anything Kaepernick does. He also hope former 49ers QB Kaepernick got a bunch of money from the league as well.
“I stand with Kaep. I kneel with Kaep… I’m happy he won his suit. I hope he got a hell of a lot of money to set his family up for a long time.”
My view: Lebron James is right. There's a time and a place for everything, it's time for Collin Kaepernick to move on, he has achieved his set goal, there's no need for him to go on to trial where he may get less money than what he has been offered.
