The Carolina Panthers pretty much threw the entire NFL for a loop on Thursday by announcing that they have signed former Pro Bowl safety Eric Reid.

On the field, Reid is a massive upgrade for the Panthers. Off the field, he brings years of National Anthem protests a close relationship with Colin Kaepernick with him to Carolina.

Still in the midst of claiming league owners have colluded to keep him out of the league, the photo announcing Reid’s signing tells us something about his mentality.

Needless to say, those on Twitter had some reactions to the surprising move.
