In recent days, former National Football League (NFL) quarterback Colin Kaepernick and current NFL safety Eric Reid settled their collusion lawsuit against the NFL. The collusion suit resulted from Kaepernick and Reid correctly believing that adverse treatment they received from the NFL was retaliation for their leadership in the national anthem protests against police terrorism. Kaepernick and Reid, when both played for the San Francisco 49ers in 2016, initiated the kneeling during the anthem and multiple players from multiple NFL teams began to engage in similar protests during the anthem every week leading through games throughout the 2018 season. During that 2016 season, Kaepernick started most of the 49ers games and performed well enough on a bad team. He completed 60% of his passes with 16 touchdowns and only four interceptions. Those aren't Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers numbers, two quarterbacks considered the best in the game, but Kaepernick's stats were far better than a number of quarterbacks currently on NFL rosters.
