    Re: Ed Reed could “definitely” see himself as a Patriot

    NEW ORLEANS -- Ravens safety Ed Reed clarified the statements that he made on Wednesday about possibly playing for the Patriots and coach Bill Belichick.

    "Of course I want to stay in Baltimore," said Reed, who will be an unrestricted free agent. "I was asked, would I play for Bill Belichick? Yes. What football players wouldn't play for Coach Belichick? Will I be in New England? Most likely not. It's just terrible that people get half the story. It's even more bad when you hear the comments that they make towards you. But it comes with it, man."
    That's how I took it when I read it in context. If Ed Reed wants to coach some day, why wouldn't he want to learn from as many of the best coaches that he can? He also said some of those comments in reference to having had experience with Belichick at the Pro Bowl. It doesn't mean he wants to play for the Patriots.

    Anyone that just looks at statistics doesn't understand what Ed Reed brings to the Ravens' defense. He has a few good years left in him, and he would be good to retain. Players respect him and learn a lot from him. Anyone who thinks he's a cancer is just flat out wrong.

    Re: Ed Reed could “definitely” see himself as a Patriot

    I don't have a problem with what Ed said. He is a free agent, if I were Ed and the possibility existed that I could not return to the Ravens (if does not retire) due to the cap or the organizations choice, I am not saying anything negative about any team that is a potential suitor for my services and certainly not saying anything negative about a coach who has been very complimentary about me (indicating he could be interested in paying me ). Add to the mix the fact that Ed would seem to be a guy who unless he was offered outrageous money would prefer to play for a competitive team, his comments make sense. I hate the Pats but I could learn to pretend I do not for the right price lol. Why limit your options.

    Absolutely correct!

    Ed Reed will truly be missed if he leaves/retired. While some here are quick to judge when he makes a mistake those same people fail to acknowledge every pass that doesn't happen because he's in the backfield!
