Chiefs' Justin Reid says he was asked about kneeling for national anthem during his draft interviews in 2018

May 8, 2023

Justin Reid helped the Kansas City Chiefs win their second Super Bowl title since the 2019 season in February when the team held off the Philadelphia Eagles, 38-35.

Reid joined the Chiefs before the start of the 2022 season after spending four years with the Houston Texans. The defensive back was a third-round draft pick in 2018 before he came on strong and made an immediate impact on that defense. He had three interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, in his rookie season.

However, Reid explained in Friday’s episode of "The Pivot Podcast" that he thought he was going to be, at the very least, a second-round pick. He recalled to Ryan Clark, Channing Crowder and Fred Taylor that teams that interviewed him had concerns over whether he would kneel for the national anthem.
