Carolina Panthers' Eric Reid scraps with Malcolm Jenkins, other Philadelphia Eagles

Tensions were running high for newly-signed Panthers safety Eric Reid and Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins at the start of their Week 7 matchup Sunday.

It reportedly goes back to their feud that began past year, when Reid withdrew from the Players Coalition.

Reid's former team mate at the San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick was the first player to refuse to stand during the playing of the national anthem before games, a protest he said was aimed at bringing attention to racism and police brutality.

Check out Reid's comments in the videos embedded below.

Eric Reid is NOT getting along well with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Julius Peppers came through with a clutch sack/forced fumble on Carson Wentz, which helped seal a win for the Panthers over the Eagles.

Both players are guaranteed to be in the Hall of Fame.

Reid was one of the first to join Kaepernick in protesting, with Jenkins among the many other players throughout the National Football League then taking up the cause.

Jenkins, the co-founder of the Players Coalition, initially joined in the protests.

The bad blood between the two stems from Reid splitting from Jenkins' The Players Coalition after the organization sought to have the protests during the national anthem stopped if the NFL made donations to causes the group supports. Reid and several other players announced in November 2017 they were withdrawing from the coalition.

"We believe a lot of players should have stepped up for Colin", Reid said in a post-game interview.

Jenkins took exception to Reid's claim then, telling ESPN that Reid was well aware of the "scope of the plan".
