CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Carolina Panthers on Monday filled a big need in the secondary by re-signing safety Eric Reid to a three-year deal that runs through the 2021 season.

Reid spent five seasons with the 49ers before joining the Panthers during the 2018 season.

"If anything, it proves my point from previous year", Reid said. "I think we have that here - I think there's a good mix of veteran players who know the game of football, can make all the checks and recognize what's coming before the snap and then we have young guys who bring a lot of energy who we can help [mold] into great players". "So it made the season that much more hard not being able to just be there for them, so I decided this year that they'll be with me". The grievance alleged team owners and the league, influenced by President Donald Trump, colluded to prevent Reid's employment because of his protests.

Veteran Da'Norris Searcy, who is under contract through 2019, started the first two games of the 2018 season before suffering a concussion that landed him on injured reserve.

"Knowing what I know my hope tank is on E [empty]", Reid said.

"I believe otherwise", Reid said.

"I enjoy being here and it reminds me of where I grew up" in Louisiana, Reid said. "I'm just excited for my family's future".

However, Reid said re-signing with the Panthers was more about the contract than any sense of loyalty to the team that gave him a second chance in the NFL. "They can cut me at any time".
