In Charlotte, North Carolina, NFL star Eric Reid, who helped spark league-wide protests in 2016 when he became the first player to kneel alongside Colin Kaepernick during the playing of the national anthem, took a knee ahead of his first game with the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. Reid’s protest against police brutality and racial injustice came after he spent the offseason as an unsigned free agent before he was finally picked up by the Panthers late last month. Both Reid and Kaepernick have filed grievances with the NFL alleging owners conspired to deny them contracts over their protests. Kaepernick is still unsigned.
