    Re: Ed Reed playing next year



    Dashon Goldson for the 49ers has been franchised this year and they still haven't negotiated a deal yet (2nd year in a row). If he walks, the 49ers are definitely going to need a ball hawking Free Safety, and Jim Harbaugh is not afraid to kick the tires on a proven vet like he did Moss

    Bengals. They have Marvin, and they have massive amounts of cap space that they are now required to spend.

    Moss was different, they got him for cheap. Ed is going to expect money wherever he goes. The only chance of him taking a paycut would be if he were staying in Baltimore which I doubt happens (thought best case scenario is we draft mid-rounds and let Reed mentor him), but that's a little too utopian

    Good point

    Re: Ed Reed playing next year

    In all honesty, I'd really like to see Ed retire a Raven, whether it be after next weekend or a new contract with the Ravens, and he retires 1 or 2 years from now. I can't gut the feeling of him playing for Bellicheat and the Cheatriots, or the Gang Green of New York.

    Yeah because he's clearly a HOFer and his jersey will be retired someday. Why not let him retire a Raven like Ray Ray? (assuming a deal is possible)

    This. A 1000 times this.

    I've been saying it for a while:

    This will play out almost identical to the Lewis a few years ago.

    He'll test the market. It will be underwhelming. He'll return on a deal structured much like Lewis' was.

    Re: Ed Reed playing next year

    Reed is my favorite Raven of all time but honestly, unless he's willing to stay on the cheap [not going to happen] then it's time for him to go. He had 8 picks in 10 games in 2010, but only has 7 picks in his last 32 games so I think his ballhawking days are largely over. When it comes to tackling, he's either bouncing off a guy, getting hurdled, or getting flagged. The best aspect of his game left is the reputation (not too many deep balls thrown this postseason) and that he can be the defensive general on the field when Lewis leaves. I don't think that's enough to pay him the top dollar he's going to want and sooner or later you're going to need move on with young talent.

    The salary floor starts to go into effect next year so you're going to see teams with a bunch of room reach for these stars. I won't be betrayed if Ed goes elsewhere and I hope he can still make some records fall. He'll always be remembered as a Raven.

    Older veteran players on the downside of their careers go to New England as their last shot at getting a ring, not because they are offered a lot of money. Ed appears to want one last payday. I don't expect New England to be a player for Ed Reed, plus, even though Belicheat loves him, I doubt Ed would get along with him very long. BB would not want to put up with Ed's diva ways. One of the few players New England did break the bank for was Adalus Thomas and they regretted that deal soon after it happened. They did not get the player they payed for, which happens often when our defensive players leave the Ravens via free agency.

    I don't think Ed is going to go to the Patriots. Why would he, assuming the Ravens win the Super Bowl? The reason veteran players go to the Patriots is to get a ring. Ed would already have one. I think he goes to Indy and plays out his career for Pagano. Pagano coached Ed at Miami and with the Ravens. Ed loves the guy, and the Colts have cap room.

    What's better than one ring? I agree with your reason for Reed going to the Colts, which is why I have them as one of the options. Same reasoning for the Pats. The Jets is a stretch, but we all know how Rex likes to take Ravens players. I never considered the Saints, but I can see him going the whole "going home" route like Heap and many others.

    If the Ravens sign Reed for even less than the minimum they are nuts.

    I believe Reed will retire a Raven so I believe he'll be back HERE next year. He's not going to get top dollar anywhere else given his age. I can't see him wearing anything but purple.

    Re: Ed Reed playing next year

    Personal I don't like Ed. He's been past his prime for years. And each year is the on again off again saga of him retiring. Get him his ring and let him move on. Reguardless he still can't tackle and is always out of position except the last 2 games which were against teams that don't throw the bombs that burn him often. Take that money and get young for the future. I expect him to play all out at the SB because that is what it is. Then next year if you give him a bunch of money it will be the old Ed of the last few years. Sorry, business decision
