Well, it sure looks like Eric Reid might have very well been caught lying.

The Carolina Panthers safety made it public that he’s been drug tested seven times back in December.

The NFL responded to that claim this morning.

A couple hours later, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport took to Twitter. It sounds like Reid was fibbing about how many times he was tested…

Reid was the second player in the NFL to kneel during the national anthem after quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Back in 2017, Reid alleged that the NFL, team owners, and President Trump colluded to prevent him from getting a contract due to his protesting.
