  • Safety Eric Reid signs 3-year deal to return to Panthers

The Panthers have re-signed safety Eric Reid to a three-year contract that runs through the 2021 season.

Reid was set to become an unrestricted free agent after completing his first season with Carolina.

Carolina signed Reid to a one-year deal four games into the 2018 season, when he immediately became the team's starting strong safety.

The NFL news cycle paused only briefly Monday afternoon to allow Eric Reid his 15 minutes of fame. "I fit well into this defense". "I'm still the same player".

Carolina signed Reid after the third game last season when safety Da'Norris Searcy was placed on injured reserve with a concussion.

In a conference call with reporters after the contract was announced, Reid said loyalty to the Panthers "played a minimal factor" in his decision.

"That was probably the toughest thing I've ever had to do - I've never been away from my family for that long, especially my daughters", said Reid. And this year I signed a more substantial contract.

Reid joined Kaepernick in a lawsuit charging the National Football League and its owners with "collusion" for keeping the two players off the field as punishment for their social justice activism. So I'm excited that this year, they'll be with me. "Charlotte reminds me of Louisiana in the sense that [there's] a lot of country, a lot of space".

But that time will not be filled with doubt as it was last season for Red - and most importantly, he'll get to spend it, and the rest of the season, with his family.
