Re: Kaepernick, NFL Reach ''Confidential Settlement''

If Kaepernick was willing to play for league minimum he would have had takers. The problem is not collusion, but rather that he priced himself out of the market. Were there individual owners who probably thought the media frenzy was not worth it at any price, yes, but that alone is not collusion. The NFL probably settled because they felt that the cost for continuing and the potential loss of revenue by keeping the story alive was more than the cost of settlement. I deal with settlement negotiations all of the time because major areas of my practice include personal injury and matrimonial cases. I have had cases where I knew that my client would 100% prevail on an issue such as Child Support but still negotiated a settlement. We had reached a point where the other side made clear that anything more would not be forthcoming unless ordered by a Court after trial and appellate process and my client realized that, because of the age of the child, the difference in child support between what she was entitled to under the applicable law/precedent versus what I could negotiate in a settlement was less than the cost of trial/appeals on the issue.
