Panthers Safety Eric Reid Drug-Tested For 7th Time In 11 Weeks

Panthers Safety Eric Reid Drug-Tested For 7th Time In 11 Weeks

Reid believes the extra tests are related to fallout from his collusion case against the NFL which alleges owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his decision to kneel during the national anthem to protest social and racial injustice.

Once again, Panthers safety Eric Reid was given a random drug test. Here are the cleats Reid will wear as he takes part in the NFL's "my cause, my cleats" campaign. "It also has the 10 point platform of Colin's Know Your Rights Camp".

Speaking with reporters after the game, Reid challenged the notion that he's being randomly selected.

Following Carolina's 12-9 loss to the Saints on Monday, Reid posted a photo on Twitter featuring the NFL's notice taped to his locker explaining what he needed to do for the random procedure.

"I've been here 11 weeks, I've been drug-tested seven times", Reid said in the video from The Riot Report.

Kovrig has been working for the International Crisis Group since February 2017 as its senior adviser for northeast Asia. Its website says Kovrig previously worked as a Canadian diplomat in Beijing and Hong Kong and at the United Nations.


He'll continue that for Monday night's game against the New Orleans Saints. "That has to be statistically impossible".

When asked if the drug tests would become part of his collusion grievance, Reid replied "Duly noted".

The artwork shows protesters holding signs reading "I know my rights" and "If not us, who?"

Using a cumulative binomial probability calculator, those numbers work out to a 0.17 percent chance of Reid getting randomly selected at least six times in 11 chances, according to the NFL's rules.
