Reid said in November that he had been chosen by the league random drug test program five times in addition to the first test that came when he first logged with the team. The NFL Players Association in May filed a complaint on behalf of Reid to claim teamwork interactions to keep him unsigned after his two seasons of protests during the National Anthem playing before matches with San Francisco 49ers.
