Free Agent Security Eric Reid is scheduled to visit the Cincinnati Bengals, a source that confirms ESPN.
The NFL network first reported the news Monday.
Reid's visit to Cincinnati is his first known visit to the agency's free time. He became an unrestricted free agent last month after spending the first five years of his career with the San Francisco 49ers. The Draft Pick of the first round of 2013 was a Pro Bowler in 2013. Reid tweeted at the start of the league year that he did not receive any interest from the teams because of his decision to protest during the national anthem. "The idea that I can be a great signer for your team, not because of my abilities, but because I have protested against systemic oppression, is ridiculous," he said in the tweet. "If you think that is, then your attitude is also part of the problem."

"I will only consider different ways to be active, different ways of raising awareness of the country's problems and improving the problems in that country."
"I do not think it will be in shape will protest during the anthem. I say "while" because it's crazy that the narrative was changed, that we protested against the anthem, and that was not the case. "
None of the Bengali players knelt during the national anthem, but they've gunned down as a team in a show of unity during the anthem before their match against the Packers on September 24. Bengal coach Marvin Lewis has said he is Proud of how his team did things last year, but also said he does not want anything that could get in the way of football.
"Our boys were excellent in this situation," Lewis told reporters Meet the owners. "In March, we play football. You have other plans, this is not the place. On Sunday for us and the whole week in the building is about football. That's how I approached him.

He has defended 10 interceptions and 36 passes in 70 career games.
