    Not true.

    Ray tested the market twice and we ended up paying a fair price for his services in the end. There's many new articles out there suggesting Ray sobered up in terms of his asking price. And I doubt the Ravens will offer more than any other team for Ed as well.

    Agreed, but if some team is willing to shell out big bucks for Ed Reed, then he is as good as gone. He's been bitching about his contract every off-season for the past 2-3 years now.

    I'd love for him to stick around on a fair deal though (for a year or 2...no more).

    Re: Ed Reed playing next year

    I don't see how the Ravens can afford to pay Ed Reed more than a Mckinnie/Birk type contract. Some team is going to offer more.

    This is what I can see. A young Bucs team with a real weakness at secondary seeing Reed as an instant upgrade and a way to sell tickets. They need to get up to the cap floor anyway which kicks in this season so they will pay a little more to get him. Reed can add a great deal to a team like that. Think Darren Sharper going to the Saints a couple of years ago.

    That is what came to my mind too.

    Maybe not the Bucs...but definitely something along those lines. Carolina, San Francisco maybe.

    Bellichick loves Ed. Unless Ed wants a huge contract, I really see him becoming a Pat next year.

    Re: Ed Reed playing next year

    If he wins a ring, he'll either stay with us, happy that he's made it, or he'll go to some less-competitive team where he can get a nice contract and not have to tackle. The ideal situation for him would obviously be going to the Saints; he'd be on a good team, become an instant leader on defense, and be back in his home city. I see Miami or Indy as alternatives too.

    If we lose, I see him going to New England.

    Ravens
    Saints
    Colts

    In that order. With the outside chance of TB or Miami or even Dallas if one of them hands him a HUGE payday, which is doubtfull. But I could see the Colts or Saints offering him slightly more than us and him taking it, Saints being hometown and Colts having Pagano. Anyone else is gonna have to go big which I doubt.

    I don't think the guy is washed up; I think he has just decided when it's necessary to turn it on. He plays so much more disciplined in the playoffs. To him, the regular season is just a formality, and he picks up his game only when he has to do so. He can probably still be effective for three more years.

    This is true. He's a different player in crucial games.

    The teams mentioned the most have cap issues or better or comparable players at FS. I dont think Ed would be in a rush to go and sign with a non contending team that has cap space. I really see this thing dragging out and Ed possibly sitting and waiting late in the game, even possibly him being forced into retirement because of offers not up to par with what he's used to making. My gut tells me he's out on the open market a long time and the Ravens sign to a modest 1 yr deal after they figure out Flacco, Kruger and Ellerbe.

    Re: Ed Reed playing next year

    I wished I could see Ed play his entire career in Baltimore, but I don't think that will happen with the cap situation and other priorities. I just hope he does not go to a division rival or the Pats. I would not mind too much seeing him as a Saint.
