Union Files Grievance Against NFL Supporting Eric Reid

The NFLPA says at least one team asked Reid inappropriate questions about demonstrations during the national anthem. Last week, Reid filed his own grievance against the National Football League, citing collusion in the free agency process.

The NFL Players Association alleges that since NFL rules don't ban kneeling during the national anthem, the Bengals were out of line to ask a free agent about it during a meeting.

Reid was the first teammate to protest alongside former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who hasn't played in the league since 2016 and filed a collusion grievance against the NFL in October.

Specifically, the grievance focuses on allegations that the Bengals asked free agent Eric Reid whether he meant to continue protesting next season. Despite being one of the top safeties available on the market, Reid remains unsigned into a third month of free agency.

Reid and Kaepernick have legitimate grievances on their alleged punishment (unemployment), Florio said, because the owners gave the players a right to protest and then took it back when it became unpopular. "We stand shoulder to shoulder with the NFLPA in our fight for justice, equality and inalienable rights of all Americans".

Reid met with the Bengals on April 9 and was reportedly asked if he would kneel during the 2018 season.
