Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid used the NFL's “My Cause, My Cleats” program to pay tribute to the "history of protest," including Colin Kaepernick and the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback's "Know Your Rights Camp."

For Monday night's game against the New Orleans Saints, Reid wore special cleats that featured drawings of Kaepernick along with other protesters and civil rights leaders centered around the quote, "If not us, who? If not now, when?"

"We all benefit and stand on the shoulders of those giants who decided their moment was best used for the sake of the people," Reid quoted artist Brandan Odums as saying of the design. "And it's always the right time to do what's right. No different from you using your moment to take a knee."

Reid's cleats also highlighted the ten points of Kaepernick's Know Your Rights Camp, which which aims "to raise awareness on higher education, self empowerment and instruction to properly interact with law enforcement in various scenarios":

1. You have the right to be free.
2. You have the right to be healthy.
3. You have the right to be brilliant.
4. You have the right to be safe.
5. You have the right to be loved.
6. You have the right to be courageous.
7. You have the right to be alive.
8. You have the right to be trusted.
9. You have the right to be educated.
10. You have the right to know your rights.

When both were with the 49ers in 2016, Reid was the first to join Kaepernick in kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice and police brutality.

Kaepernick, who remains unsigned, has filed a collusion grievance against the NFL, accusing the league of blackballing him over his kneeling during the anthem.

Reid filed his own grievance against the NFL after having trouble getting signed. The Panthers eventually picked him up shortly after the regular season began. He is pursuing the lawsuit despite being signed, and has alleged that since his return, he has been unfairly targeted for drug tests and on-field violations.
