It’s been just a couple of days into free agency and here he is whining about not being signed yet. Typical.
Behold: the mastermind behind Kaepernick’s kneeling isn’t part of the free agency feeding frenzy.
San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid was the first player to follow Kaepernick’s lead on the anthem protest. As a matter of fact, it was Reid that suggested that Kaepernick kneel instead of sitting on the bench during the anthem.
Now Reid says that his history with the anthem protest which was to combat ‘systemic racism’ is what has kept him from being signed just a couple days into free agency.
Back at the end of the season, Reid acknowledged that this could be an issue for him, but said he was ready for it.
Safety Eric Reid said Friday he’ll head into free agency well aware that his anthem protest could affect his value on the open market.
“I wouldn’t use the word ‘concerned.’ I’d say I understand that that’s a possibility,” Reid said Friday when asked if he’s worried the protests would diminish his free-agent value. “And I’m completely fine with that. The things that I’ve done, I stand by. And I’ve done that for my own personal beliefs. Like I said I’m fine with whatever outcome comes because of that.”

Today, not so much.
He says that his value shouldn’t be diminished because of his protests:
What happened to being fine with whatever the outcome is?
Must be that the potential loss of a few million dollars makes people antsy.
And Reid deserves millions, right? After all, he’s a legend in his own mind.
Reid was out of the lineup for several weeks due to a PCL injury early in the season and his replacement, Jaquiski Tartt had played so well that the 49ers were reluctant to take him out of the lineup. When Reid was ready to play, he was moved to linebacker, which turned out to be temporary as Tartt suffered a season-ending broken arm just a few games later.
Bro, you didn’t even keep your own spot on your own team.
However, Reid is putting the blame on the owners.
Maybe that’s the problem.
They know your character.
Perhaps the strategy of maligning owners — your potential bosses — isn’t the best one, Eric.
Just a thought.

We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
