The Carolina Panthers added some help to their defense today by signing Eric Reid to a one-year contract. The five-year NFL veteran has played with the San Francisco 49ers since he was drafted in 2013 and was selected to the Pro-Bowl.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera wanted a little something more from his offense, which is why he turned to his old boss Norv Turner as the team's new coordinator this season.

Rivera, who once coached under Turner in San Diego, said he got exactly what he was hoping for Sunday.

It’s been an offseason of turmoil for Carolina Panthers management with workplace misconduct allegations against now former owner Jerry Richardson. New owner David Tepper has brought change, and there are indications more change is coming.

The National Football League and its players’ union continue to butt heads over players kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice. Wouldn’t it be impressive if on game days players and their team could present a united statement on liberty and justice for all – one everybody could stand up for? 

It can be done, and the Carolina Panthers are just the team to do it.
