Panthers did not ask Eric Reid about demonstrating

Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid

He was, notably, the first player to kneel alongside former teammate (and current exile) Colin Kaepernick. "He's played at a very high level the last few years".

Many assumed that if Kap or Reid got signed they would immediately stop their collusion case against the National Football League, but it Reid's case who just signed with Panthers, it might actually help his case. Reid was the first player to kneel alongside Colin Kaepernick in 2016, when they were teammates on the San Francisco 49ers, and he continued to kneel in 2017.

Panthers general manager Marty Hurney told The Associated Press it was a "football decision" that was approved by new owner David Tepper.

The Panthers are in need of help at safety after Da'Norris Searcy was placed on injured reserve due to a concussion. "He's a hell of a safety, a really good player". He's lead a team, played in a Super Bowl.

The free agent had gone unsigned throughout the offseason and into the start of the regular season despite a solid season playing multiple roles in San Francisco previous year.

The Carolina Panthers have brought a polarizing character back into the NFL. I say 'during, ' because it's insane that the narrative changed to we were protesting the anthem, and that wasn't the case.

Stills and Dolphins receiver Albert Wilson have earned weekly praise on social media from Kaepernick for being the only players in the NFL to kneel during the National Anthem before each game this season. "I know how he is as a talent". "He's good enough to play, obviously". The 49ers could end up starting rookie fifth-round pick D.J. Reed at free safety and Antone Exum Jr.at strong safety, after he made the start last week against Kansas City in an 11-point defeat.

Financial terms of Reid's one-year contract with the franchise were not immediately available.

"Both of those guys should be playing, " Smith said of Reid and Kaepernick.

"I think that's great for him", McCourty said.

The Panthers are entering their bye week so Reid will not take the field until October 7 at Bank of America Stadium to host the New York Giants.
