On Monday, Reid had a visit with the Cincinnati Bengals where a conversation with Bengals owner Mike Brown quickly turned into a discussion about whether Reid would commit to not kneeling during the national anthem.
According to Pro Football Talk, Reid had already said that he had no plans to protest this upcoming year, but when Brown wanted a commitment that Reid wouldn’t protest no matter what, Reid wouldn’t commit to that.
Reid went so far as to have a physical and even reviewed film. During a meeting with Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, Reid was reportedly asked if he wanted to clear up anything that he’d said to ownership about his kneeling protest. Reid noted that he did not, and the Bengals did not offer Reid a contract.
“We are about playing football,” Lewis told reporters at last month’s owners’ meetings, the New York Post reports. “[Players who] have other agendas, this is not the place to be. On Sunday for us and throughout the week in the building, it’s about football. That’s how I’ve approached it. Whatever happens from the league standpoint we will go along with, but that is what our guys know. And they handle that for me. I don’t have to have a voice. They understand what I am about; anything beyond that gets in the way of us doing what we want to do, and that’s winning football games.”
