Former San Franciso 49ers safety Eric Reid has filed a grievance against the NFL over his employment status, and the reason not team will sign him.
ESPN (@espn) reports, they’ve been told by a source that Reid is working with attorney Mark Geragos, who also represented his former teammate Colin Kaepernick, in his collusion grievance against the NFL.
Reid’s grievance is a system arbitrator case that will be adjudicated under the terms of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement. The claims in Reid’s grievance are similar to the same ones filed by Colin Kaepernick.
Reid remains unsigned after becoming a free agent in March when his rookie contract with the 49ers expired. Reid was one of the first players to join Kaepernick two years ago in kneeling during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and racial inequality.
