Eric Reid is still a free agent. But that’s strange, considering he’s the best free-agent safety on the market. And it’s almost certainly because of his protesting alongside former teammate Colin Kaepernick. But now, he’s joining Kaepernick on a whole new adventure — in a sense. He is now filing a collusion grievance against the NFL.

Back in March, Reid would speak on his status, noting that kneeling has cost him another job opportunity thus far.
“The notion that I can be a great signing for your team for cheap, not because of my skill set but because Ia��ve protested systemic oppression, is ludicrous. If you think is, then your mindset is part of the problem too.
“GMs arena��t the hold up broski. Ita��s ownership. People who know football know who can play. People who know me, know my character.”
But it didn’t end there. Last month, he would have a visit with the Cincinnati Bengals. However, he would leave without a contract. And for some reason, protesting was a topic of conversation among owner Mike Brown.
“Reid, caught off guard by the line of questioning, wasn’t willing to make a commitment on the spot. a�� After the meeting with Brown, Reid took a physical and spent time reviewing film with members of the coaching staff. He developed a clear sense that the coaches (specifically, defensive coordinator Teryl Austin) were interested in signing Reid and weren’t concerned about whether he’d kneel or otherwise demonstrate during the anthem or at any other time.” cheap zoloft online, dapoxetine online.
So a collusion grievance makes sense for the safety. And if teams keep acting this way, it’s only going to get worse for the league. So, what’s it going to be?
