Eric Reid, one of the former San Francisco 49ers players who kneeled during the national anthem alongside Colin Kaepernick in 2016, has finally found an NFL team.

The Carolina Panthers confirmed Thursday that they have signed the 26-year old safety to a contract.

Reid, who had previously filed a collusion grievance against the NFL this offseason, had compiled 10 interceptions and 52 tackles over a span of five seasons with the 49ers from 2013-2017. He was also a Pro Bowler in 2013.

He will replace Da’Norris Searcy in the Panthers’ lineup, who already sustained his second concussion this year.
