After the game on Sunday, Reid criticized Jenkins as "complete" and "neocolonialist," according to Deadspin.

"His actions speak louder than his words," Carolina's defense told reporters in his locker room.

Reid accused Jenkins of "co-opting" the protest movement initiated by Kaepernick.

"He was corrupt because of the jump," Reid told reporters.

& # 39; I knew what I was doing from the offset.

"His goal was to sell us, and he did it."

When Jenkins was told about Reid's comments, he replied, "I would never get up here and say anything bad about someone I know whose intentions were real in helping the community, especially another black man."

"I respect him, I'm glad he has a job, I'm glad he's back in the league, I'll leave him like that."

The dispute between Reid and Jenkins is due to a disagreement between the two men over the players' response to the controversy over social justice protests during the singing of the national anthem.

Reid, a former member of the San Francisco 49ers, was one of the first players along with Kaepernick who knelt during the game of the Star Spangled Banner.

Jenkins also organized his own form of protest. He and other teammates raised a fist in the air during the national anthem.

While Reid and Jenkins agreed that there was reason to protest, they did not agree on the next step.

Jenkins agreed to stop raising his fist in the air after the NFL agreed to commit nearly $ 100 million to advance social justice problems.

Last year, the agreement was signed between the owners of the league and a group known as the Players Coalition, which was co-founded by Jenkins and retired NFL star Anquan Boldin.

But there were players who were not on board.

The guard of Reid and the Miami Dolphins, Michael Thomas, said that they were withdrawing from the agreement.

They were livid because they claimed that Boldin and Jenkins deliberately excluded Kaepernick from their conversations with the owners.

& # 39;[Colin Kaepernick and I] I think many players should have gotten ahead of Colin, "Reid told reporters on Sunday after his team's victory.

& # 39; I think Malcolm capitalized on the situation.

He co-opted the movement that was started by Colin to obtain financing for his organization.

& # 39; It's cowardly He sold us.

It was also said that Reid and Thomas were angry because the donation made by the NFL was promised with the understanding that the players would end their side protests.

"With much thought and consideration, I have decided to officially withdraw my participation in The Players Coalition, founded by Malcolm Jenkins and Anquan Boldin," the statement said.

"It was assumed that the Players Coalition would be formed as a group representing the NFL athletes who have been protesting in silence over social injustice and racism," the statement continued.

"However, Malcolm and Anquan can no longer speak on our behalf, since we do not believe that the beliefs of the coalition are in our best interest in general.

"We will continue to dialogue with the league to find equitable solutions, but without Malcolm and Anquan as our representative," the statement concluded.

Reid says he left the Players Coalition because Jenkins excluded Kaepernick from the meetings, and asked the players if they would stop protesting the anthem if the NFL made a charitable donation to the causes they support.

"Malcolm sent me a text message this morning asking me if we would feel comfortable when we finished our demonstrations if the NFL made a donation," Reid said.

"At that time, that was the last straw for me," he continued.

& # 39; Had a conversation with the NFL.

"We agreed that several people would be part of the conversations with the league, so it simply would not be him."

"He did not keep his word on that, and at no time did we communicate an agreement with the NFL to end the protest."

Carolina Panthers defender Eric Reid was not just mad at Eagles star Malcolm Jenkins for the Kaepernick saga.

He also attacked a Philadelphia sportsman for drawing a racist caricature and publishing it on social media before quickly eliminating it.

In addition to covering his hometown Eagles, Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice has a penchant for using MS Paint software to draw player figures from players.

On Sunday, however, he may have gone too far.

Reid showed the caricature in the locker room after the game by the writer Blesser Report Master Tesfatsion.

"This is exactly what I'm talking about," said the Panthers' safety.

"I expect nothing less than a racist."

Tesfatsion posted a screenshot of Kempski's original tweet under the title: "This is a picture of Jim Crow in 2018. It's disgusting."

Kempski then deleted the tweet and published an apology to Tesfatsion. He also said he wanted to talk to the journalist.

"It was a regrettable, but honest mistake, and I apologize," Kempski wrote on his Twitter page.

"I suggested that we discuss it in the press box, which he refused to do initially.

"I'll be here for at least an hour or so, I'm still happy to talk, let me know."

Another Twitter user asked Kempski why he eliminated the controversial tweet.

"I was told that for me it is a negative racial caricature, and when I examined it carefully, I obviously realized that," the journalist wrote on Twitter.

"So I deleted it."

Kempski posted a statement on his social media account.

"Today, I tweeted (and then erased) a drawing by Eric Reid in an attempt to make fun of his animated altercation prior to the game during the Eagles-Panthers game.

"For those of you who are not aware of my work, I regularly incorporate cartoons of badly drawn stick figures into my articles and on Twitter.

"Reid's drawing involuntarily mimicked that of a negative African-American caricature.

"For anyone who has been hurt and / or offended by the drawing, I understand their anger and I deeply regret it."

Reid apparently never forgave Jenkins for what he thought was a sale of the cause.

After Reid signed with the Carolina Panthers weeks ago, he called the Players Coalition an "NFL-funded subversion group."

He said he would continue to promote his own social agenda without the help of the Players Coalition.

Kaepernick became a politically polarizing figure after conservatives, including President Donald Trump, accused him and other players of denigrating the military and law enforcement.

Liberals praised Kaepernick for leading a movement that drew attention to social justice issues such as police brutality and criminal justice reform.

Kaepernick and other NFL players who knelt during the anthem deny that their intention was to crush the armed forces.

Both he and Reid did not find a team willing to sign them after they unveiled their side protests.

Reid finally managed to sign with the Panthers at the end of September, although Kaepernick still does not sign.

Both Reid and Kaepernick have filed complaints of collusion against the NFL, claiming that the owners conspired to keep them out of professional football as punishment for expressing their political opinions.

Despite the apparent bad blood between them, Jenkins was quoted as saying he supported Reid having another chance to sign with an NFL team.

"I think any team that is considering it will weigh up their political views and the firm stance they have taken over the past two years, and that is unfortunate, but it is what it is," said the Eagles' safety to NJ. Advance Media. March, when Reid was without a team.

"So I hope the teams see beyond that and evaluate him as a player, and I think that as a player he deserves a place in this league."
