Eric Reid Calls Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins A "Sellout" After Pre-Game Clash

23 October 2018

Tensions involving former 49ers and current Panthers safety Eric Reid and Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins boiled over on Sunday, from the opening coin toss to the post game locker room.

Jenkins has been a fixture in the fight started by Kaepernick and Reid, raising his fist during the national anthem during the 2017 season, to go along with countless charitable acts in the community, as well as working with local lawmakers to solve the issue.

Reid also almost clinched the game with an interception on a late pass by Carson Wentz, though it was incorrectly overturned.

The two players, who spent 2016 and 2017 protesting against the United States during the national anthem, almost came to blows Sunday as they prepared to take the field against each other, according to Fox News.

The bad blood between the two stems from Reid splitting from Jenkins' The Players Coalition after the organization sought to have the protests during the national anthem stopped if the NFL made donations to causes the group supports.

"Malcolm did text me this morning asking if we would be comfortable ending our demonstrations if the National Football League made a donation", Reid said Wednesday.

He walked up the entrance ramp and was met by his two fellow members of faction The Shield, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose . This was an absolutely shocking announcement and obviously I join everyone in wishing him the very best with this battle.

"He co-opted with the movement that was started by Colin to get his organization started", he said after the game. "It was cowardly. He sold us out".

Reid says he was never consulted about such a deal, and wouldn't have agreed to it had he been.

After signing with Carolina, Reid called the Players Coalition, which is led by Jenkins, a league-funded "subversion group".

"You couldn't pay me to say anything negative about them", Jenkins said.

"Eric Reid! Enough said!" he wrote on Twitter. "So I'm going to leave it at that". I think he deserves to have a job in this league, I'm glad that he does have one.
