Eric Reid doesn’t think his random drug testing is so random.
The Panthers safety claimed that he has been drug tested twice since training camp started and a total of three times this NFL year.

Reid credited his trainers for his muscular physique, while saying he was keeping track of the “random” drug tests.
He raised the issue of how he was tested last season, tweeting a photo out in December of what he claimed was his seventh drug test since joining the Panthers in September. According to Reid, he was being scrutinized by the league because of his collusion case against the NFL with former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick from their protests over social injustices.

Reid and Kaepernick were paid an undisclosed settlement by the NFL in March over the collusion case.
Reid said during training camp that he plans to continue to kneel during the national anthem and continue protesting.
