Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reports that Colin Kaepernick has withdrawn his collusion complaint against the NFL, signaling a financial settlement between the two parties.
Sources previously told Robinson that Kaepernick would only withdraw if a lucrative settlement was secured.
The AAF reportedly reached out to Kaepernick about playing in the new league, but a report mentioned that he was seeking more than $20 million.
Reports from last year mentioned that Kaepernick is still working out regularly and hoping to get another shot in the NFL. However, there hasn’t been any reported interest in him since last year.
Kaepernick, 31, is a former second-round pick of the 49ers back in 2010. He was in the third year of his seven-year, $126.97 million contract that included $61 million guaranteed when reached an agreement with the 49ers on a restructured deal that allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent in 2016.
The Seahawks showed interest in bringing Kaepernick in for a visit last offseason before canceling the meeting altogether.
In 2016, Kaepernick completed 59.2 percent of his passes for 2,241 yards and 16 touchdowns and four interceptions, while adding 468 yards rushing. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 27 quarterback out of 36 qualifying players that year.
