ERIC REID OF THE CAROLINA PANTHERS, THE SAME MAN WHO PROTESTED ALONGSIDE COLIN KAPERNICK HAS NOW RECEIVED 7 "RANDOM" DRUG TESTS IN JUST 11 WEEKS FROM THE NFL! The NFL drug tested him again last night after the Monday Night Football game against the Saints. REMEMBER THESE TESTS ARE SUPPOSE TO BE "RANDOM"....... "Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid took aim at the NFL's drug testing policy on Monday after being selected to undergo a random test for the seventh time this season.
Reid, a staunch ally and former team-mate of ex-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, had already accused the NFL of targeting him unfairly as retribution for his lawsuit against the league.
The 27-year-old, who joined Kaepernick in his take-a-knee protests during the playing of the US national anthem, filed a grievance in May after he remained an unsigned free agent.
That case remains active even though Reid was picked up by the Panthers in September after the 2018 season kicked off.
However, since joining the Panthers, Reid has drawn attention to frequent requests by independent doping control staff to submit to drug testing.
On Monday following the Panthers' 12-9 loss to New Orleans, Reid was asked to undergo his seventh test of the season in 11 games.
Reid posted a picture of the doping order on Twitter, with the comment: "Number 7 ... 'random'." In comments to reporters, he later rejected any notion that he was being randomly selected for testing. "I've been here 11 weeks, I've been drug tested seven times," Reid said. "That has to be statistically impossible. "I'm not a mathematician but there's no way that's random," Reid added." #EricReid #Kaepernick7 @e_reid35 #ThisShitAintRandom #NFLProtest #Racism
