Mike Brown had a meeting with Eric Reid last week. He had every intension to bringing on a very talented Safety but something got in the way. Mike Brown asked the question about Eric Reid can no longer protest the anthem. Reid responded not to Brown’s liking.
Eric Reid has a considerable amount of talent that will be over looked because of him being the first to help Colin Kaepernick in the anthem protests. How can an owner turn away talent because of protests yet he does not punish his existing players? The past two decades Brown has signed tons of talent with a long list of arrest warrants.
Reid has not had a single visit this off-season till the Bengals scheduled a meeting. It could be his last due to the stand of an owner that usually allows mischief. This is purely blackballing players due to limiting players freedom of speech.
It is a shame that Brown can’t look past it. The Bengals could be having a great talent that already went thru his rookie contract. Now the Bengals will have to take and develop a safety in the draft. In this league good safeties are hard to come by.
This might be the first down point in the Bengals off-season.
