He is the first Panthers player ever to kneel during the national anthem. The charismatic signal caller knew there would be questions about Eric Reid's signing and he was more than prepared. "But that's not the way it works".
Reid was the first player to kneel alongside Colin Kaepernick during the anthem in protest of social injustice. It will be interesting to see what platform Reid chooses when he takes the field on Sunday.
He added: "He's a great player". What he does outside of football, I am going to stand by him and be with him on that.

Moving the ball and scoring points has been a struggle this season for the Giants under Shula. But Carolina's second touchdown is as embarrassing as it gets. Both teams need a win, the Giants to build some momentum before a short-week showdown against Philadelphia next Thursday night and Carolina to prove they can be contenders - winning the games they should. However, Stewart suffered a foot injury that landed him on injured reserve this past week.
Vernon has 40 ½ sacks over the past five seasons while playing mostly defensive end. It ended a four-game drought. McCaffrey is averaging almost six yards per attempt, though he has just one for 20-plus on the season. That could be a major problem this week with Newton taking snaps.
Then, forced to return punts because of the Giants' ineffective return game, Beckham made a crucial mistake that cost them seven points.
Three bold expectations for the third home game of the season.
The 1-3 Giants, meanwhile, are more of a disaster so to speak. Shurmur isn't panicking ahead of Sunday's tilt in Carolina.
Though Newton has been sacked six times, his 28 rush attempts for 4.9 yards per offset that, and No. 1 backfield performer Christian McCaffrey has ben solid too.
