Eric Reid: Panthers (and many other teams) could use Colin Kaepernick

The Panthers didn’t send a representative to Colin Kaepernick’s workout in Atlanta Saturday. Other than Eric Reid, at least. Via Joe Person of TheAthletic.com, Reid said he drove to Atlanta for the session, and was back before the Panthers’ team meetings last night, which kind of eliminates any excuses their personnel department might have had.

Falcons win two in a row, hammer Panthers 29-3

The Falcons don’t look like the same team as before the bye, and that’s a good thing. Because the old one nearly got everyone fired.

Matt Ryan moves into top 10 in all-time passing yards

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is leading his team to another convincing performance, and moving up the all-time lists in the process.

Falcons up 20-0 at halftime

The Falcons didn’t fire everybody during the bye week, and they suddenly look like a competent football team.

Falcons with early lead after Kyle Allen pick

Panthers quarterback Kyle Allen got a bunch of people excited by winning his first four starts this season, making some wonder if he was a starter of the future.

Panthers dinged up at cornerback against Falcons

The Panthers will have James Bradberry back on the field this week, but they could still be a bit thin in the secondary against Julio Jones and the Falcons.

Christian McCaffrey makes another quick recovery

The Panthers are using running back Christian McCaffrey carefully during practice. It’s unclear whether he’s getting rest, or whether he actually has fought through a collection of injuries.

Which teams are attending Colin Kaepernick’s workout?

Colin Kaepernick will workout for scouts Saturday in Atlanta. As PFT reported earlier Thursday, the league has not provided and does not plan to provide Kaepernick’s representatives with the names of those attending.

Some teams which obviously have no interest in Colin Kaepernick are going to the dog-and-pony show Saturday anyway. Some teams aren’t going to bother pretending.

Eric Reid spoke to David Tepper about Colin Kaepernick last week

Panthers safety Eric Reid is a former teammate and close friend of Colin Kaepernick, so it was no surprise that reporters came to him for comment about the workout the NFL arranged for Kaepernick in Atlanta this Saturday. It wasn’t the first conversation that Reid has had about Kaepernick potentially returning to play recently. He [more]
