Colin Kaepernick has hit out at the NFL, claiming the league is "blackballing" his former San Francisco 49ers teammate Eric Reid (above) and accused them of running "propaganda about how they care about Black Life."

Kaepernick and Reid participated in protests during the playing of the national anthem before NFL games to highlight social awareness and racial injustice in 2016.

The pair have both previously filed a grievance letter with the NFL, alleging team owners and the league colluded to prevent their employment due to the protest activities.

Quarterback Kaepernick has remained unsigned since 2017, while Reid joined the Carolina Panthers in 2018, but has been a free agent since being released in March this year.

Reid, a strong safety, had four sacks in 16 games for the Panthers last year and completed a career-high 91 tackles.

In a post on Twitter on Sunday, Kaepernick said: "While the NFL runs propaganda about how they care about Black Life, they are still actively blackballing Eric Reid for fighting for the Black community.

"Eric set two franchise records last year, and is one of the best defensive players in the league."
