Prior to yesterday’s recreation between the Carolina Panthers and Philadelphia Eagles, Panthers security Eric Reid needed to be restrained from going after Eagles’ security Malcolm Jenkins because the crew was being launched. The two had exchanged phrases throughout pre-game warmups and the strain carried over in the course of the recreation and into the post-game.
According to ESPN, Reid and Jenkins have been at odds since late final season, when Jenkins, who counded the Players Coalition, stopped kneeling in the course of the nationwide anthem after the NFL introduced it could donate $100 million to causes thought-about vital to the coalition.
After the sport, Reid stated Jenkins “capitalized on the scenario,” including, “He co-opted with the motion that was began by Colin to get his group began. It was cowardly. He offered us out.”
Reid signed with the Panthers final month after beginning free security Da’Norris Searcy was positioned on injured reserve. At Redi’s introductory press convention he described the Players Coalition as an “NFL-funded subversion group.”
