Panthers sign Eric Reid

It's about time.

After months of waiting, free agent safety Eric Reid has found a new home. The one time San Francisco 49ers safety has signed with the Carolina Panthers. Injuries have left the Panthers light at the safety position, with Da’Norris Searcy recently placed on injured reserve.

Reid currently is currently involved in a collusion grievance against the league. Even though he has signed with a team, he does not have to drop his grievance. He could continue attempting to prove NFL teams colluded against him — it does not have to be every team. He could still argue his market value declined because of collusion.
