While the safety is back in the league playing for the Panthers, Kaepernick remains a free agent.

Reid was out for football for nine months after being the subject of controversy when he knelt in protest alongside his teammate and former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The Carolina Panthers are coming off their bye week and will be heading into a matchup with the New York Giants that seems to have more storylines off the field than on it. He later added in his press conference that he doesn't consider Reid's political views and demonstrates "a distraction".

- As the national anthem played, every player on the Carolina Panthers sideline could be seen standing, except one. "I haven't been in the place where I felt like I could really go out and do everything that I'm capable of doing", Beckham said. Nevertheless, the Panthers responded to the challenge in Eric Reid's first game as a member of the team. But what he does on the football field is going to impact this team. After the game Reid wore a shirt that read "Know your rights" and listed 10 points.

He ultimately made a decision to kneel, saying "I've always told myself when the time comes to stop kneeling, I will stop".

Getting second-year wide receiver Curtis Samuel back on Sunday, after he sat out the first three games following a procedure for an irregular heartbeat, also was big.

"My Brother @E_Reid35, with @KSTiLLS and @iThinkIsee12, continue to take a knee against systemic oppression".

"I've talked to a couple of people about it as I said I'm still evaluating the scope of our country", Reid said.

Several high-profile Carolina players said they were prepared to support Reid, a 2013 Pro Bowl selection, if he protested. "I didn't think it was that far when I went out there". Because it's not that way right now. "But we're going to keep pushing toward that".

Receiver Torrey Smith said conversation about potential protests before the games hasn't gone down in the locker room since Reid joined the team, the report states.

Reid did tell coach Ron Rivera before the game that he was going to kneel, but also said he didn't believe he needed anyone's approval to do so.
