It looks like Colin Kaepernick has something to celebrate.

According to reports, he and Eric Reid have confirmed that they have reached a confidential settlement with the NFL in their collusion case.

The NFL players filed suit against the National Football League alleging team owners and officials colluded to keep them off of professional teams because of their decision to take a knee during the National Anthem at games, ultimately launching the #TakeaKnee movement.
