    Re: Ravens may not want Ed Reed back, visiting Texans on Thursday



    If Ed does not finish his career with the Ravens it is his choice. Just like Ozzie did with Ray he told Ed how much the Ravens were set to offer him. If he can find a better deal than it is up to Ed to make the decision. This is nothing new and has nothing to do with the 'mutiny'

    Re: Ravens may not want Ed Reed back, visiting Texans on Thursday

    105.7 FM talked about it at the 6 pm hour. He's in Houston and might even be signing now. Keep your ears on the radio. Ravens haven't even made an offer. The guy says they're purging the vets to get younger and these were all guys with big mouths. Everyone knows that Reed has mouthed off in private and public and they didn't ask him to present the bikes to the NO Police Dept. JJ did.

    Same goes for Boldin and Pollard. Both were mouth pieces in the locker room and HARBs doesn't want em back.

    Get this. Pollard was the player rep that the players elected. He did a lot of talking in the locker room. Some of it was good. Some of it was bad but his release has nothing to do with cap space. His cap hit is only $750Gs.

    As guy on radio said, HARBs came in 5 years ago and physically ripped out the lockers and mixed up the d-guys with the o-guys for more harmony. He was asked to fixed the tension during his interview so this is what he did with the owner's blessing.

    So 5 years later he won the trophy and made the playoffs more than any other coach and has the juice to do whatever he wants. So it's goodbye to Pollard, Reed and Boldin who mouthed off and thought they were safe.

    Don't forget, Foxworth was the last player rep who was released as soon as the lockout was over. He even predicted it.

    That's the way it is. Football is a billion dollar industry but these releases have nothing to do with $$.

    Just one guy's opinion.

    It is not his choice. It's Harbaugh's choice. The Ravens haven't even attempted to bring him back. Do you really think Reed wants to leave this team after all he said after the Superbowl?

    Ozzies choice.

    I agree with your premise to an extent. The Ravens had better be careful if this is the direction they choose to go in. If what they seek is a bunch of spineless robots then they can forget about winning another SB.

    Ultimately it is Ozzie's choice, but I think he is giving his coach what he wants in getting rid of the vocal players. If Harbaugh were ambiguous to the situation I don't think Ozzie cuts Pollard and I think he tries to let Reed finish his career here. I guess this is Harbaugh's reward for firing his buddy, Cam, against his will.

    It's more about getting rid of guys who are comfortable enough to mouth off. Personalities are fine but Harbaugh has proven if you follow him he can lead you to the Super Bowl. You better not get too comfortable with your position because the NFL stands for Not For Long, especially for players who want to mutiny on a Super Bowl winning coach.

    We saw what happened when Billick let those comfortable players take too much power. They got lazy and old. If all the speculation is true, Harbaugh would be wise not to let that happen.

    Even so, it could just be that Pollard wasn't that great and Reed is old and they want to get younger. Might not have much to do with the "mutiny" at all.

    Ozzie assembles the team harbs coaches them. I'm sure harbs has opinions but final call is up to Ozzie.

    If it wasn't for that "mutiny" this team doesn't sniff the Superbowl. The coach isn't always right and the players called him to the carpet on it. It forced Harbaugh to change and fire his boy. We don't win the Superbowl if it wasn't for that. Those players should be applauded, not dicked over.

    Speculation at best.

    No shit? I'm sure Ozzie does take his coach's opinion into the matter though. Hell, fans have spent the past decade blaming Billick for Boller.

    Aaron Wilson ‏@RavensInsider

    The Texans have been involved and in on Ed Reed since the start of free agency, not sudden development, per sources

    Aaron Wilson ‏@RavensInsider

    Sources emphasize that the 49ers are actually a legit contender for Ed Reed should the Texans visit not lead to a fast deal.

    He wasn't a Superbowl winning coach when this supposedly happened last October. And they didn't start winning until after Cam was fired. So actually the mutiny led to the championship.

    Great point because that's all they have now that Ray is gone and Ed is soon to depart along with the others. They ripped out the heart of the defense so who is the leader now? Will anyone have the courage to even speak up?

    And whatever to PLAY LIKE A RAVEN. That's all these cats did more than anyone this side of Ray and that's what happened to them.

    I wasn't even upset until the guy on the radio said Pollard was the player rep and I remembered that Foxworth was too.

    You think this team wins the big one with Cam? Really?
