It's official: Colin Kaepernick's legal battle with the NFL is over.

In 2017, the quarterback accused team owners of colluding to keep him from playing, after he chose to kneel in protest against racial injustice during the national anthem in 2016. A semi-public hearing was due to begin early spring, which is presumably what prompted the sudden settlement. The settlement is subject to a confidentiality agreement, but rumors are floating around that the amount paid to Kaepernick was in the region of $60-80 million.

Eric Reid has also settled his own collusion case against the NFL, after he followed Kaepernick's lead and kneeled in protest.

Of course, Twitter has been providing us with a steady stream of chuckle-worthy memes in celebration of the settlement. Check out the funniest ones below.
