Reid riled by ran­dom tests

Sport360 - - Nfl -

Pan­thers safety Eric Reid, a staunch supporter of for­mer San Fran­cisco 49ers quar­ter­back Colin Kaeper­nick’s so­cial jus­tice protests, found him­self at odds with NFL poli­cies again this week.

Reid was tabbed for a ran­dom drug test af­ter Thurs­day’s loss to Pitts­burgh, say­ing it was “like the fifth time since I’ve been here”.

Reid signed with Carolina in Septem­ber and has played six games. He re­turned to the league say­ing he would con­tinue to kneel dur­ing the na­tional an­them. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy tweeted on Fri­day to re­assert the drug test­ing was ran­dom, re­pu­di­at­ing sug­ges­tions Reid is be­ing tar­geted.
