Despite being one of the more talented and versatile safeties of this free agency class, Reid didn’t garner a lot of attention. His first visit came with the Bengals on April 9th , and it is shocking it took him this long to even get a visit after hitting free agency in March.
Free agency has pretty much been put on hold with the draft quickly approaching. Usually, the only remaining players are veterans nearing the end of their career as teams would rather add a young rookie at the position instead of paying a veteran who may be beyond their prime. But that’s not really the case with Reid who is still a starting-caliber safety and someone the Bengals could use in their defense.
One reason people think Reid has waited this long to find a team is because he was one of the first players to show support of Colin Kaepernick ’s protesting during the national anthem.
The players know the science. When a player takes artificial testosterone, his body stops producing it. Instead, it produces estrogen. Sometimes, high levels of estrogen can be detected through the NFL’s testing procedures. Certain levels can cause failed tests. That’s why you’d use an estrogen blocker, though it can also cause a failed test.
Regardless of what the chemistry may or may not be in Davis’ case, the interesting thing is what it symbolizes to the players who spoke with B/R.
If an employee or contractors actions impact revenue, they absolutely do have a legitimate reason to ask about all manner of things.
Old Glory is always a legitimate reason to ask. If you disrespect the flag, you don’t deserve the privilege of playing in the NFL. Simple as that.
You mean like the armed services that pay for Patriotism before every game? That kind of special interest? I don’t have a beef with the military. I have had several family member and close friends either serve or are currently serving. Heck we all do. But does our military need to advertise themselves at the start of every football game? It’s not done out of Patriotism. It’s a paid commercial. I’m standing anyway but if someone chose not to I’m not going to get my feathers ruffled up. I’m not going to question their Patriotism. Heck standing up takes no effort. It doesn’t make you a good Patriot.
