Eric Reid: NFL teams won't sign me because of national anthem protests with Colin Kaepernick
17 March, 2018, 13:40
'The notion that I can be a great signing for your team for cheap, not because of my skill set but because I've protested systemic oppression, is ludicrous. Now, the former San Francisco 49ers safety may be proving himself right.
Reid added that he thought it was team owners, who tend to skew conservative, that are keeping him out of a job rather than anyone on the playing side. "People who know me, know my character", Reid posted.
Then, Kaepernick became a free agent and has gone unsigned since then. The Baltimore Ravens coach recently admitted that a US military official advised him not to sign Kaepernick over the protest.
However, Reid shouldn't be completely surprised by National Football League owners exercising their right to not hire someone they perceive as a potential distraction. They do not understand why players are kneeling, but that's a whole other matter entirely.
Reid was drafted out of LSU as a safety, however, previous year the 49ers moved him to weakside linebacker.
He made it clear on Twitter Thursday that he was speaking out about his free agency because of the "false narratives out there". Kaepernick's contract expired and he went away, but Reid continued to take knees, and to then play and play well for the 49ers a year ago.
And Reid thinks the anthem protests are the reason why.
