Eric Reid stated numerous times during the 2018 NFL season that he seemed to be targeted a lot for random drug tests by the league as they seemed to be less than random each time he got one.
The Carolina Panthers safety is now claiming it has continued this offseason.
On Sunday, Reid shared a photo of himself working out and revealed he has already been drug tested twice during training camp and three times total since the start of the league year. He used quotation marks around the word “random,” which is a clear indication that he feels like he’s being targeted yet again.
Odell Beckham Jr. also stated he has been “randomly” tested. Reid told reporters in his return to the league that he had been tested six times between September and November, stating, it “doesn’t feel very random.”
Reid was one of the first athletes to kneel alongside Colin Kaepernick back in 2016 when they were teammates in San Francisco.
He has already went on record to state he will continue to kneel during the 2019 season.
