Eric Reid is still coming to the defense of Colin Kaepernick and has called the NFL's use of Kaepernick, in a season opening social media video, "diabolical."

Eric Reid on Monday called the NFL's social justice campaign this season "half-hearted at best" and the league's use of video of Colin Kaepernick kneeling while the quarterback remains unsigned "diabolical."

The free-agent safety tweeted that commissioner Roger Goodell "has gotten comfortable" saying he was "wrong" not to listen to players about social injustice "as if his mere acknowledgement reconciles his admitted wrongdoing. He hasn't even called Colin to apologize, let alone reconcile, proving this is only PR for the current business climate."

Reid added that "Goodell uses video of Colin courageously kneeling to legitimize their disingenuous PR while simultaneously perpetuating systemic oppression, that the video he's using fights against, by continuing to rob Colin of his career. It's diabolical."

Reid's tweets came a day after Kaepernick called out the NFL's campaign.

"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," tweeted Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who has been out of the NFL since 2016.
