Falcons are not interested in signing free agent safety Eric Reid 

Allen suffered a torn Achilles Sunday in a loss to the Saints.

Reid, who has started 69 games in the NFL, is known for kneeling during the national anthem when he played for the 49ers.

“No, not at all,” Quinn said when ask if Reid’s anthem stance had anything to do with the team not pursuing him. “I recognized where the question goes, but a lot of things go into that. Contractually, that’s one that goes in to it with all players. But nothing from an off-the-field standpoint.”
