The Carolina Pantherson Thursday signed Pro Bowl free-agent safety Eric Reid, who was not re-signed by the San Francisco 49ers in the offseason amid the controversy of his grievance with the NFL.

In 2016, Reid was the first player to join former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial inequality and police brutality.

In May, the NFLPA filed a grievance with the NFL on Reid’s behalf, alleging that team owners and the league, influenced by President Donald Trump, colluded to prevent his employment because of his protests. Kaepernick, who filed a similar grievance in October 2017, remains unsigned.
