His short term contributions would not be worth the long term impact. Not to mention, with his injury and threat to retire, any contract for him is risky. You might end up paying for a player that is not playing.

    And when Ed hits the open market in a huff he will realize real fast no one is going to pay him shit, because of everything you just mentioned. The Ravens know this as well, just like they did with Ray, and are sitting back laughing at Ed's delusional thinking.

    I think another factor involved in the Ravens reluctance to extend Ed Reed now is what happened with Jonathan Ogden. The Ravens gave him a big contract extension with a big signing bonus. Ogden then retired a couple of years into that deal due to his toe injury, and kept that big signing bonus. The Ravens cap was negatively impacted for several years after that. I could see Ed Reed doing the same thing. Sign a new contract with a sizable signing bonus, and then retire after a year or two at the most due to his neck injury and keep that signing bonus.

    Yup. I think Steve McNair left us with dead money when he retired to. His contract wasn't as big as JO's but I don't think the Ravens traded for him and gave him new money with the expectation that he would retire two years into his deal. It's the reason that they structured Ray's deal the way that they did.

    Ozzie probably turned this like the 'in other news' section of the paper.
    "When questioned, the Elders explained that they were in search of magical powers. However, they're actually searching for the whereabouts of a certain ring. This ring is a legendary treasure that long ago was known to exist"

    His remarks last offseason made it sound more like he was just looking for the security of a nice chunk of bonus money. Ive never heard him complain about his salary or say that he isnt making enough money or anything.

    Ravor said he doesnt even have an agent right now. If he was trying to get silly money dont you think he would at least have an agent?
    I don't know but after Webb got his money I read that Reed stated he should be the highest paid in the Ravens secondary
