"I can't wait to see him ball".

Eric Reid is getting another shot in the NFL.

Stills describes Reid as an impact player who should have been signed the first day of free agency. It's a long time coming.

Reid replaces Da'Norris Searcy on the Panthers' lineup.

When told after practice Thursday, Hyde responded, "For real?"

"It's an awesome opportunity", Reid said. One fan asked if this might be the best Carolina defense in its history.

The former LSU standout safety also was in talks with the Tennessee Titans before flight issues led to the team's signing of former New Orleans Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro.

Prosecutors say they were allegedly seeking firearms training and were arrested in possession of five small handguns. An investigation into other potential targets is continuing.

Back in August, the 49ers also offered Reid a contract.

Reid, 6-1 and 215 pounds, played the first five seasons of his NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers after being selected by the team in the first round (18th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft. "I think we're going to take a different approach to how we're going to be active".

Kaep and Reid were teammates on the 49ers and have been good friends for a WHILE.

As the report stands now, Reid and the Panthers did not discuss the safety's stance on the anthem protest moving forward this season and this was a "football move". Reid and Colin Kaepernick have been at the center of the protests featuring kneeling during the national anthem, with both players involved in a collusion lawsuit against the league. Terms of the deal were not announced. But despite his track record, no team signed him as a free agent in the off-season after his contract expired, leading him to join Kaepernick in filing a grievance against the NFL, alleging collusion to keep him out of the NFL by the league's owners. A native of Baton Rogue, LA, Reid was the first player to kneel alongside quarterback Colin Kaepernick during the playing of the national anthem as a protest of police brutality.

"We made this decision based on the fact he's a good football player", the Panthers general manager, Marty Hurney, told ESPN.

The Panthers are in need of help at safety after Da'Norris Searcy was placed on injured reserve due to a concussion.
