Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio broke an interesting twist in the Eric Reid saga on Tuesday. Per a source with knowledge of Reid's situation, the safety has not received a formal offer from the 49ers despite reports that he turned down a one-year contract offer from the team. Reid is also scheduled to visit the Cincinnati Bengals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Reid was drafted with the 18th-overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft after the 49ers and Dallas Cowboys swapped first-rounders. San Francisco also sent a third-round selection (No. 74 overall) to the Cowboys as part of the deal.

During his five-year career with the 49ers, Reid collected 10 interceptions, amassed 34 pass break-ups, forced two fumbles and totaled 318 combined tackles (257 solo, 61 assists). He also made the Pro Bowl as a rookie in 2013, while being voted to the Pro Football Writers of America's All-Rookie team, per

Now embattled, Reid has been waiting patiently for his 2018 free agent tour to begin. According to Scott Polacek of Bleacher Report, "he was one of the first players alongside quarterback Colin Kaepernick to protest racial injustice and police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem."

The Niners current depth chart at strong safety includes Pro Football Focus' 10th-best safety in 2017, Jaquiski Tartt. He took over strong safety duties after Reid suffered a left knee injury in the 49ers' Week 2 road contest against the division rival Seattle Seahawks. Rookie safety Adrian Colbert took over free safety duties for the oft-injured Jimmie Ward too, after Ward broke his forearm in the team's Week 8 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Reid was quickly moved to linebacker following his return to action.

The 49ers would have to pay Reid $5.676 million to match his 2017 salary.
