NFL's Panthers sign Eric Reid, who joined Kaepernick in anthem protests

Shortly after that, National Football League reporter Jim Trotter revealed the San Francisco 49ers made a strong run to bring back Reid earlier this week prior to his decision to join the Panthers. "After we put Da'Norris Searcy on injured reserve, (head coach) Ron (Rivera) and I discussed our options, and Eric was at the top of our list".

Reid was an All-Pro and All-Rookie player during his rookie season, and last season he started 12 out of the 13 games he played in.

Reid filed an official grievance letter with the NFL in October of 2017, alleging that team owners and the league colluded to prevent his employment due to his protest activities.

He was named NBA Finals MVP in 2014, when he helped the Spurs defeat LeBron James and the Miami Heat. Leonard's focus "is on this year, this group that I have and striving to get to a championship".

The 26-year-old safety, a former first-round pick in the NFL Draft, had played for the 49ers from 2013-17. "I told you the reason we chose to go that direction is because we made a tough decision, but we had to do it". "The only way I would personally be happier is if he ended up on a team that was on our schedule so that way I'd have a chance to play against him but I'm super excited for him". Moreover, Bengals owner Mike Brown allegedly questioned Reid about his future plans to protest during the playing of the national anthem, stirring speculation that teams backed away from Reid because of his activism. "I hope that's something that can happen for us, because I know with the injuries that we have he could help this team". The younger Reid said he wants to stay focused on football and helping the Texans win their first game. We went with Tartt. "I don't think this is going to make or break his case". You can't give a lot of money to backups, and that's what he would be if he came here.

"I'm on the West Coast visiting schools all week", Hurney said during a phone interview from the University of Southern California, "so I actually haven't talked to Eric". Eric is a good player, he's a good person. "Then we brought him in Wednesday night". I don't think it will be in the form of protesting during the anthem.

Starting strong safety Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, and free safety Adrian Colbert (hip) was limited.
