Following his support of right to protest with former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Reid has been at the front of the National Anthem controversy. "He's a player who has obviously played at a high level in this league".

Reid has been on Packer fans' radars for some time, especially in the wake of the poor (or, at best, inconsistent) play at the safety position out of Kentrell Brice and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to start the 2018 season. The team just placed safety Da'Norris Searcy on injured reserve last week after he suffered multiple concussions in a short time, so Reid will likely start immediately.

"He's a physical safety with good ball skills and he makes plays and he has experience", Hurney said.

The NFL recently failed in its attempt to have Kaepernick's grievance thrown out, with an arbitrator ruling that it will go to trial.

"A football team signing a good football player isn't really a landmark, in my opinion".

After the season, Reid - like Kaepernick - had suspiciously not been signed by any team.

Michael Avenatti Tweets Bombshell Allegations Against Brett Kavanaugh By New Accuser
Bill Cassidy (R-La.) reacted on "Outnumbered Overtime" to the third sexual misconduct accusation against Brett Kavanaugh . Avenatti says that there are other corroborating witnesses, but they have not been made public at this time.

Reid is now involved in a lawsuit against the NFL.

"I'm immensely proud of what all the guys have done that are trying to have a voice for the voiceless", Reid said. "I know how he is as a talent. But the sense I get is that he's very excited to play football".

"I always knew he'd get signed", Sherman said, via NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.

Reid was a first-round NFL draft pick in 2013 and was named that season to the Pro Bowl and the NFL All-Rookie team. In addition, the Seattle Seahawks offered Reid a one-year deal in August prior to Earl Thomas returning, a source informed of the situation told Trotter. He was the second player to join Kaepernick in his protest by sitting on the bench during the playing of the national anthem.

In Carolina, Reid joins a defense that has uncharacteristically struggled this season; the unit, regularly among the league's best, now ranks 23rd overall, via Football Outsiders' metrics, and is 20th in pass defense.

The Panthers next play October 7 at home against the New York Giants.
