Panthers safety Eric Reid and Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins don't see eye-to-eye on everything when it comes to handling social justice.
The two had to be separated before playing each other Sunday. "We believe a lot of players should have stepped up for Colin," Reid told reporters in Philadelphia after the game. "I believe Malcolm capitalized on the situation. He co-opted the movement that was started by Colin to get his organization funded. It's cowardly. He sold us out."
At the same time, both safeties clearly have the same views on one part of Colin Kaepernick: The former 49ers quarterback deserves a job in the NFL.
"We've always maintained, I know I've always maintained, and every chance I get to say Colin Kaepernick has started this. Eric Reid deserves a job. Colin Kaepernick deserves a job," Jenkins said to reporters Wednesday. "I can turn on the tape this week in our opponent and see that Colin Kaepernick deserves a job."
On Sunday, Jenkins' Eagles play quarterback Blake Bortles and the Jaguars. Bortles is ranked last in Matt Maiocco's lastest QB Power Rankings, and he was benched in the second half last week.
In seven games this season, Bortles has thrown for 1,735 yards and nine touchdowns with eight interceptions while completing 60.6 percent of his passes -- which actually is a career high. The Jaguars are just 3-4 one season after making it to AFC Championship Game.
When Kaepernick last played in the NFL two seasons ago, he completed 59.8 percent of his passes while gaining 2,241 yards in 12 games. He tossed 16 touchdowns to four interceptions.
