Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid resolved their collusion grievances against the NFL on Friday. The National Football League Players Association Chris Lindstrom Jersey , which had helped fight the players’ case, released a statement applauding the settlement.The NFLPA also added it hopes Kaepernick gets “his opportunity” to return to the NFL.Kaepernick has not played since 2016. Reid, who had to wait until the season started last year to find a job, signed an extension with the Panthers earlier this week.“Today, we were informed by the NFL of the settlement of the Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid collusion cases,” the NFLPA wrote. “We are not privy to the details of the settlement, but support the decision by the players and their counsel. We continuously supported Colin and Eric from the start of their protests, participated with their lawyers throughout their legal proceedings and were prepared to participate in the upcoming trial in pursuit of both truth and justice for what we believe the NFL and its clubs did to them. We are glad that Eric has earned a job and a new contract, and we continue to hope that Colin gets his opportunity as well.” DENVER (AP) — Some wore full costumes and others sported jerseys, including one Denver Broncos supporter with “P. Bowlen” on the back. Quite a few devotees stood in the rain for about an hour before making their way inside the stadium.The fans arrived in droves Tuesday to pay respect to owner Pat Bowlen, who died last week at 75 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/kaleb-mcgary-jersey , and just two months shy of his enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.The public tribute to Bowlen at Broncos Stadium at Mile High featured all sorts of memorabilia, including his famous fur coat , Super Bowl trophies , vintage photos, videos and numerous footballs marking big moments. Then there was his desk, which was noteworthy for a piece of paper resting in his in-box . It was a to-do list containing three items: be No. 1 in everything; beat the Raiders; win the Super Bowl.Of course, all three boxes were checked.“He’d be incredibly overwhelmed by all this support and love,” said Brittany Bowlen, who along with her siblings stood in line for hours greeting fans as they made their way through the exhibit. “It’s pretty astonishing, to see all these artifacts and things that were important to him in life. He’d be incredibly overwhelmed by the support. It would be moving for him.”Super fan Jesse Esquibel wore some of his game-day outfit for the occasion, including a mask. He’s known as “Bronco Reaper Kendall Sheffield Jersey ,” a name he selected after experiencing a few near-death encounters throughout his life. Another supporter wore an orange Darth Vader helmet.“I wanted to show,” Esquibel said, “that Broncos fans are fans through and through.”Peyton Manning was in attendance. So was John Elway. Longtime receiver Rod Smith recounted a golf game when he partnered with Bowlen and they took on coach Mike Shanahan and quarterback Brian Griese.“We ended up winning. You should’ve seen his face — he was fired up,” Smith said. “In the weight room, didn’t matter where he was, on the treadmill, Pat was competitive.”Very much so.Bowlen had as many Super Bowl appearances (seven) as losing seasons, and Denver went 354-240-1 since he bought the club in 1984. The team won Super Bowls in 1998, ’99 and 2016.“There’s not a person in this community who’s had a more profound impact on Denver and the state of Colorado and really the Rocky Mountain region than Pat Bowlen,” Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said. “I wanted to make sure I came and paid my respects to the family and the memory of a great man who’s done a lot for all of us.”A private funeral service will be held Monday, with Bowlen’s good friend John Finney delivering the eulogy. Finney http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/john-cominsky-jersey , who lives in Honolulu, has so many rich stories from their longtime friendship. Like how they used to paddle a canoe through giant waves in Hawaii, or how they opened a business together, or their trips on Bowlen’s jet.“He had a lot of friends from all walks of life here, from beach boys to bankers,” Finney said in a phone conversation. “He was devoted to the Broncos and devoted to winning.”Finney recalled the time Bowlen came back to Hawaii soon after the Broncos were beaten 55-10 by the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 24. Bowlen steered clear of their beach club for about a month, knowing he would be razzed.“So Pat finally shows up after a long absence and (someone) says, ‘Great game, brah,'” Finney cracked. “We’re always teasing one another.”A competitor with class, that was Bowlen’s reputation.“There was not a dishonest bone in his body Qadree Ollison Jersey ,” Finney said. “He was so respected in the NFL, because the other owners could trust him. He wanted to be part of the betterment of the NFL, and it worked.”On Feb. 7, 2016, Elway thrust the Lombardi Trophy into the air and hollered, “This one’s for Pat!” That moment came 18 years after Bowlen had declared, “This one’s for John!” following the franchise’s first Super Bowl championship.And on Tuesday, Beth Bowlen Wallace paid respect to the legion of Broncos fans that showed up by saying: “This one is definitely for you all.”
