The pair had filed a lawsuit against owners and league officials claiming that they had been kept off of NFL rosters for choosing to kneel during the national anthem.

"For the past several months, counsel for Mr. Kaepernick and Mr. Reid have engaged in an ongoing dialogue with representatives of the NFL. As a result of those discussions, the parties have decided to resolve the pending grievances. The resolution of this matter is subject to a confidentiality agreement so there will be no further comment by any party," a joint statement by attorneys Mark Geragos and Ben Meiselas reads.

Reid was eventually signed by the Carolina Panthers in 2018, he signed a $22 million, 3 year extension earlier this week. Kaepernick remains a free agent.
