Panthers’ Cam Newton Excited for Addition of Eric Reid

Published

on

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is excited that the team recently inked veteran free agent safety Eric Reid to a contract, giving the talented playmaker a shot at being an impact player on a talented Panthers defense.

“Obviously it was a wowing kind of response from everybody, including myself” Newton said, according to the Panthers official website. “I think it was the right move. He’s a great player. We’ve accepted him with open arms. We know he’s going to be an impact player for us, and that’s all I care about.”

“We got a steal, I feel, I know there are a lot of teams that if Eric was still a free agent they would love to have him. I don’t need (to) say the teams, but I’m glad we got him.”

Newton also spoke about the issues regarding Reid and his protests during the National Anthem.

“I’m going to stand by him and none of that will be a distraction as far as us winning football games” Newton said. “What he does on the football field is going to impact this team. I know that. We got a steal, I feel. I know there are a lot of teams that if Eric was still a free agent they would love to have him. I don’t need (to) say the teams, but I’m glad we got him.”

Panthers Sign Eric Reid

The Carolina Panthers have signed free agent safety Eric Reid, according to a team announcement.

Reid had spent a lengthy time on the free agent market after his departure from the San Francisco 49ers where he notably joined former then-Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick in kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial equality and police brutality in 2016.

The NFLPA filed a grievance with the NFL on Reid’s behalf last season and alleged that team owners and the league, influenced by President Donald Trump, colluded to prevent his employment due to the controversial protests he engaged in.
