PFT is really going overboard with the rumors, speculation, and twisting of things.

Is it really so hard to understand that the Ravens as an organization could not spend $5 mil on resigning an icon whose skills have diminished? Not only that, think about the media/fan shitstorm would happen next year if they were forced to turn around and cut him. An amicable parting where Reed still gets a big payday as a free agent is the best possible end to this.

Not wanting to handicap the team on the field and against the cap is not the same as wanting an individual gone.
