Both players had filed grievances alleging NFL teams had colluded to prevent them playing in the league due to their protests created to highlight racial and social injustices, including the shooting of Black men by US police.

The Panthers announced the signing of the free-agent safety to a one-year deal in a press release on Thursday.

Danny Welbeck happy to wait for Premier League start at Arsenal
The Englishman, who has seen minutes come few and far between so far this season, was handed the opportunity to show Unai Emery what he can bring to the team.

Reid, the first player to kneel alongside Kaepernick during their time with the 49ers, filed a collusion grievance against the National Football League after not receiving interest from teams during free agency this offseason. The team just placed safety Da'Norris Searcy on injured reserve last week after he suffered multiple concussions in a short time, so Reid will likely start immediately. "He is a physical safety with good ball skills and play-making ability".

Kaepernick congratulated his Reid on Twitter, saying Reid "should have been signed the 1st day of free agency".

There were also lingering questions about whether Deborah Ramirez , Kavanaugh's second accuser, would testify. He also accused Judge Kavanaugh of misleading senators in previous hearings.

In March, Reid said he wouldn't take a knee during the anthem once he's back on the field. "He's one of the best men I've been around, so I hope that is something that can happen for us because I know that with the injuries we have he's a guy that can help this team". I wanted to do something, but didn't know what or how to do it. "Then Ron (Rivera) and I talked first thing Monday morning about the safety position", Hurney said. "But the sense I get is that he's very excited to play football". But both Trotter and Branch have reported the team offered Reid a one-year contract.

Stills and Dolphins receiver Albert Wilson have earned weekly praise on social media from Kaepernick for being the only players in the NFL to kneel during the National Anthem before each game this season. The 49ers could end up starting rookie fifth-round pick D.J. Reed at free safety and Antone Exum Jr.at strong safety, after he made the start last week against Kansas City in an 11-point defeat. Reid could also quickly swoop in as a key part of their secondary while stabilizing that unit of the defense moving forward this season.
