Eric Reid files collusion grievance against the NFL

Joe Namath Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid deserve to be on NFL teams

Joe Namath Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid deserve to be on NFL teams

The 26-year-old LSU product became a free agent after finishing his rookie contract with San Francisco last season.

"I feel like he was hung out to dry", Reid said of Kaepernick. Reid accompanied Kaepernick, when he received the Amnesty International Ambassador of Conscience Award for his public protests against what he perceived as racial and social injustice, last month.

According to Dan Graziano of ESPN, Reid hired the same representative of Colin Kaepernick, Mark Geragos.

"(Bengals owner) Mike Brown reportedly asked Reid if he'd be OK with not kneeling during the Anthem", reported.

He filed a similar collusion grievance against the league in October claiming that the club owners colluded to prevent a franchise from hiring him.

Earlier he had shared a video interview , recorded on March 18, with United States radio DJ Charlamagne on Twitter , in which he was asked about having a "mental breakdown" in 2016.

A Pro Bowl selection in 2013, Reid has been a starter in each of his five National Football League seasons. Some figures in the game say Reid's situation is down to a slow market for safeties, the position he plays, this offseason. Even the legal experts I trust aren't quite sure about what to think right now. "But I think we're going to take a different approach to how to be active". But after becoming a free agent in March, he's had a hard time finding a team to sign him - which he now alleges is due to his political stances. He hasn't garnered a ton of attention though getting only one interview with the Bengals.

It's yet unproven if a conspiracy against these players exists, but it's very suspicious that two talented individuals like Kaepernick and Reid are struggling this much to get signed.

In the era of the spread offense (and, make no mistake, its reached the National Football League and will only further entrench itself in the years to come), the ability to cover the entire field and play multiple positions is critical to any defense.

"I stand by what I've done", he said. "People who know me, know my character", he added.
