Eric Reid is still a free agent. And while he believes it’s because of his kneeling during the anthem, he’s probably going to stop.
“From the beginning, Colin has been flexible. He started by sitting. He changed it up. We decided to kneel. And we understand that you got to change with the times. So Ia��m not saying Ia��m going to stop being active, because I wona��t. Ia��m just going to consider different ways to be active, different ways to bring awareness to the issues of this country to improve on.”
But Reid doesn’t stop there.
“I dona��t think ita��ll be in the form of protesting during the anthem. And I said a�?duringa�� because ita��s crazy to me that the narrative got changed to we were protesting the anthem, because that wasna��t the case. But I think wea��re going to take a different approach to how to be active.”
At the same time, he doesn’t regret a damn thing.
“I stand by what Ia��ve done. I know why Ia��ve done it. My faith in God is the reason. I can go to sleep at night confident I did what I was called to do. Ia��m just gong to stay positive and keep trying to stay in shape and wait and see what happens. … I said at the end of last season Ia��m OK no matter what happens.”
As for a reunion with the 49ers, GM John Lynch doesn’t rule it out entirely.
