Panthers sign safety Eric Reid to 3-year contract extension

The Panthers have reportedly agreed to a three-year extension with veteran safety Eric Reid, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Set to become a free agent, Reid signed a three-year contract with the Panthers as Hurney attempts to reload a roster expected to endure a lot of turnover this offseason.

Reid finished with 71 tackles, five passes defended and one interception in 13 games after signing with Carolina in Week 4 last season.

Reid said after a December 17 loss to the New Orleans Saints that he had been selected for drug testing for the seventh time since signing with Carolina in late September.

Reid originally signed with the Panthers in September after safety Da'Norris Searcy suffered his second concussion of the year and had to go on injured reserve.

A first-round draft pick in 2013 for the San Francisco 49ers, Reid made the Pro Bowl as a rookie and helped the team reach the NFC Championship Game that same year.

The NFL Players Association filed a collusion grievance against the NFL on Reid's behalf in May.

"We always knew he was a solid football player, and he showed it to us", coach Ron Rivera told the team website. And this year I signed a more substantial contract.

Reid has an ongoing lawsuit against the NFL owners for colluding to keep him out of the league.

"We'll probably get a place with a yard for my dogs, so I'm excited to have [my family] here with me this season".

"I enjoy being here and it reminds me of where I grew up" in Louisiana, Reid said.
