Did Colin Kaepernick sellout?

Reports have leaked that Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid received less than $10 million in their collusion case against the NFL. This has reignited talk that Kaepernick's case might not have been strong enough, causing the settlement. His critics say he sold out. Others are saying the reports are speculative and this does not deter from his work supporting charities aimed at alleviating racial inequality. What do you think? 🏈✊

Doubters really don't have much ammunition when it comes to Kaepernick other than he was a "bad" quarterback. Now, they have everything they need to bury him.

Kaepernick taking a settlement proved he really wasn't about the justice. He just wanted the money. If he really had a case, he would have exposed the NFL for all the wrong they have done by blackballing him. Instead, he took the money. 

If Kaepernick really had a case against the NFL, he should've continued to fight to expose the league. Now, all we're left with is a report that he and Eric Reid received $10 million and a non-disclosure agreement that prevents anyone from really knowing the true story.

Kaep sold out.

People who say Kapaernick sold out already have it out for him. First, he's not a patriot for kneeling. Then, he's just a bad quarterback. Now, he's a sellout. Where will it end?

Kaepernick taking a settlement isn't selling out. The collusion case has nothing to do with his fight against racial inequality. It only has to do with his lack of employment with the NFL. And the money that he took to "sell out" really isn't that much. He and Reid still split the money and probably have to pay legal fees. The total he gets most likely isn't close to what is being leaked. If anything, the NFL looks bad for settling because it looks like the league doesn't want to be exposed.

It's all speculative anyway. Kaepernick continues to help charities who aim to solve the problems he's fighting. He is still an activist who is still fighting.

He didn't sell out.
