For his career, Reid has started 69 of 70 regular season games played, tallying 375 tackles, 10 interceptions, 34 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
Reid had played the first five years of his career in San Francisco after being picked in the first round of the 2013 draft.
Reid is expected to start for the Panthers after they placed starting safety Da'Norris Searcy on injured reserve this week. "He is a physical safety with good ball skills and play-making ability". The NFLPA filed a grievance on Reid's behalf in May, alleging that NFL team owners and the league colluded to keep him out of a job due to the protest. Other than the Cincinnati Bengals, whom Reid visited in April, other teams did not show interest in him despite his solid performance with San Francisco, which included a Pro Bowl selection after his rookie season.
The free agent had gone unsigned throughout the offseason and into the start of the regular season despite a solid season playing multiple roles in San Francisco a year ago.
There had been no previous talk about the 49ers being interested in bringing Reid back into the fold. I say 'during, ' because it's insane that the narrative changed to we were protesting the anthem, and that wasn't the case. "People who know me, know my character". He could quickly return to form as one of the top safeties in the National Football League, and at the very least, he should be a starter and contributor on the Panthers defense.

Ford the professional environment she asked for", Grassley said. "I remember her saying the assailant was now a federal judge". According to the affidavits, Ford revealed the assault in varying levels of detail between 2002 and Koegler's email in June.
Reid backed Kaepernick while the quarterback chose to kneel during the national anthem starting in 2016. Absent an atmosphere of collusion, there would be no need to get the league's nod of approval before signing Reid. Hyde says that "I kind of felt like they was doing him the same way they were doing (Kaepernick), so it's good to see E-Reid got signed".
Smith, who has has defended the right of players to protest, called the 26-year-old Reid a "great leader" and one of the "best men that I know".
According to a report by Jim Trotter, Carolina didn't even ask Reid if he plans to continue demonstrating. "I don't see why a team won't sign him, or hasn't signed him".
The Panthers, 2-1, will host the New York Giants in Week 4.
