    From Emily Carron of Sports Illustrated

    The Carolina Panthers have signed free agent safety Eric Reid to a one-year contract, the team announced Thursday.

    The Pro Bowler became a free agent this past offseason after starting 12 of 13 games for the 49ers.

    Reid is currently involved in a lawsuit against the NFL. After joining former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2016 in kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial equality and police brutality, the NFLPA filed a greivance with the NFL on Reid's behalf last season. The lawsuit alleges that team owners and the league, influenced by President Donald Trump, colluded to prevent his employment because of his protests.

    After the Panthers starting safety Da'Norris Searcy was placed on injured reserve due to a concussion, the team desperately needed depth at the safety position. The team has said that their conversations with Reid were strictly football related, as his ongoing legal battle does not impact his ability to play this season.

    "Eric has been a starting safety in the NFL and has played at a high level throughout his career,” general manager Marty Hurney said in a statement. “After we put (safety) Da’Norris Searcy on injured reserve, Ron (Rivera) and I discussed our options, and Eric was at the top of our list. He is a physical safety with good ball skills and play-making ability.”

    Reid, 26, played five seasons with the San Francisco 49ers after being selected by the team in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft. The Louisiana State product tallied a total of 375 tackles, 10 interceptions, 34 passes defended, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries throughout his time in San Francisco.

    From Vincent Frank of YardBarker

    Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick may never play another snap in the NFL. He’s currently in the midst of a court battle with the NFL, claiming the powers to be have colluded to keep him out of the league.

    The same can be said for recently-signed Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid. In many ways, the former teammates have been tied at this hip since the Kaepernick-led national anthem protests started back in 2016. After all, Reid is also in the midst of a court battle with the NFL.

    A former Pro Bowler, Reid’s signing shocked the NFL world. For some, it was a long time coming. For others, the question about Kaepernick’s unemployment is now front and center.

    Immediately after Reid’s signing with the Panthers became official, Kaepernick took to Twitter to congratulate his friend. He also made sure to make a political statement in the process.



    More so than any other player, Reid has stood by Kaepernick during his battle against social injustice. To see his best bud sign has to be considered a win.

    None of this will impact Kaepernick’s collusion case against the NFL. In fact, Reid’s current legal war with the league will likely continue. But it’s clear that Reid is now the face of protest within the confines of the NFL. Whether he continues it once suiting up for the Panthers remains to be seen.
