Colin Kaepernick may have pocketed up to $80million in his breakthrough settlement with the NFL.

The controversial free agent quarterback finally settled his collusion grievance against the NFL on Friday, ending the nearly two-year-long case.

The terms and details of the settlement were not disclosed but NFL columnist Mike Freeman speculates the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback may have received between $60million to $80million in the agreement.

'Number NFL team officials are speculating to me is the NFL paid Kaepernick in the $60 to $80 million range,' Freeman of the Bleacher Report tweeted Friday afternoon.

His former San Francisco 49ers teammate Eric Reid had filed a grievance against the league that was also settled on Friday.

'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.'
