Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is excited that the team recently inked veteran free agent safety Eric Reid to a contract, giving the talented playmaker a shot at being an impact player on a talented Panthers defense.

“Obviously it was a wowing kind of response from everybody, including myself” Newton said, according to the Panthers official website. “I think it was the right move. He’s a great player. We’ve accepted him with open arms. We know he’s going to be an impact player for us, and that’s all I care about.”

“We got a steal, I feel, I know there are a lot of teams that if Eric was still a free agent they would love to have him. I don’t need (to) say the teams, but I’m glad we got him.”

Newton also spoke about the issues regarding Reid and his protests during the National Anthem.

“I’m going to stand by him and none of that will be a distraction as far as us winning football games” Newton said. “What he does on the football field is going to impact this team. I know that. We got a steal, I feel. I know there are a lot of teams that if Eric was still a free agent they would love to have him. I don’t need (to) say the teams, but I’m glad we got him.”
