Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid confronted Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins during the pregame for using Colin Kaepernick situation to get his organization funded.

Reid and Jenkins were both part of the Players Coalition, a group built to foster social initiatives for underfunded communities and further opportunities for African-Americans. Reid left the group in late 2017 after Jenkins, on the group’s behalf, agreed to a partnership with the NFL that would contribute $90 million to groups and causes endorsed by the coalition.

The 26-year-old got into an altercation with Jenkins prior to the game. He also bodyslammed Eagles tight end Zach Ertz during the contest, after delivering a late hit on quarterback Carson Wentz.

Reid expressed his continuing irritation postgame, accusing Malcolm Jenkins for taking money from the league and allegedly turning his back on Colin Kaepernick.

Eric Reid accused Malcolm Jenkins of selling out the culture for his personal agendas. Eric Reid is fighting systemic oppression in America. He believes more players should support Colin Kaepernick. Which aI believe he’s right, 70% of the NFL are people of color. When you watch a football game you will see a majority of black players. Most of them have experienced systemic oppression in America.

Colin Kaepernick tweeted his support for his former teammate Eric Reid:

Jenkins refused to retaliate, instead praising Reid for his efforts and intentions to help with social justice initiatives.
