Reid spoke out about the NFL’s drug-testing system earlier this season when he received a previous request. The NFLPA said they would be looking into the number of drug test requests Reid has received from the NFL, which is now seven in 10 games, including one which came during a physical before he joined Carolina.
Reid, 27, spent his first five NFL seasons with the 49ers and was a Pro Bowl player in 2013. He signed with Carolina on Sept. 27.
The Panthers losing streak was extended to seven when they fell to the Saints. They will take on the Falcons in Carolina next Sunday.
