49ers Player Who Kneeled With Colin Kaepernick Has Been Signed

Reid was the first player to kneel alongside Kaepernick more than two years ago to draw attention to racial injustice and police brutality.

Panthers starting safety Da'Norris Searcy was placed on injured reserve last week with a second concussion in five weeks.

"Our union is proud to stand with one of its strongest player leaders and we congratulate Eric for making it back to doing the job he loves", Eric Winston, president of the NFL Players Association, said in a quote posted on Twitter.

"Congrats 2 my brother @e_reid35, all pro safety who should have been signed the 1st day of free agency, who has signed a football contract.", Kaepernick wrote.

Reid has signed with the Panthers and Stills says he spoke to Kaepernick on the phone Thursday.

The NFL Players Association filed a grievance with the league last season which claimed that league and team owners conspired against Reid to keep him from being employed in response to his protests.

Bill Cosby sentenced to 3-10 year for sexual assault
Montgomery Count District Attorney Kevin Steele rejected the idea that Cosby's age and failing health entitled him to mercy. Cosby was convicted in April of knocking Constand out with pills and molesting her at his suburban Philadelphia home.

Carolina's decision to sign Reid aligns pretty well with a new ownership group that seems to be forward-thinking and inclusive. He's led a team, played in a Super Bowl.

They signed Dezmen Southward, who was with the team in camp, to the practice squad on Monday and also have safety Cole Luke on the practice squad.

The NFL recently failed in its attempt to have Kaepernick's grievance thrown out, with an arbitrator ruling that it will go to trial. Reid was one of the leading players who took a knee during the national anthem.

Regardless of whether Kaepernick's National Football League career continues, experts in labor law are intrigued by what the Panthers' move could mean for the collusion grievances. "Then Ron (Rivera) and I talked first thing Monday morning about the safety position", Hurney said.

Hurney was out of town, and he wasn't working in the NFL when Reid was selected by the 49ers in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. "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". "He deserves it and it's not right what's happened to him".
