Eric Reid re-signs with Panthers for 3 seasons

The Carolina Panthers re-signed defensive back Eric Reid to a 3-year, $22 million contract.

What It Means:

Reid made his Panthers debut in Week 5 and became an immediate starter. "I feel comfortable here. I was excited just to get (the deal) done," the 27-year-old said. "I fit well into this defense." The 49ers originally drafted Reid in the first round of the 2013 draft.

Reid recorded 66 tackles with 1 interception and 5 pass deflections in 13 games for the Panthers last season.
