Eric Reid, Malcolm Jenkins get in confrontation

Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid is clearly not happy with the Eagles.

There's history between Reid and Jenkins: Jenkins is the co-founder of the Players' Coalition, a social justice partnership formed in the wake of Colin Kaepernick's protests against social inequality in America.

Once he was back towards the sideline, Reid had to be restrained from going after receiver Torrey Smith, his own teammates. Reid appeared to be yelling at Jenkins.


Jenkins and Reid had a disagreement over the Players Coalition previous year and how funds were allocated by the NFL in response to player protests during the national anthem, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. Reid tackled Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, who didn't have the ball at the time.

Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid started in his first game with the team and played significant minutes, despite not having played a regular season game since the end of the 2017 season. But Reid has been highly critical of Jenkins for allegedly working too closely with the National Football League and hanging the players out to dry, even calling the Coalition an "NFL-created subversion group". Zach Ertz then stuck up for Wentz and then the two got into it, resulting in personal fouls both ways.
