    You've said some pretty stupid things here, but cmon man, he played really well in the play offs, but he wasn't the sole reason we won one play off game.

    Pretty sure if the player retires, that money comes off the books and is not owed, nor does it impact the cap.

    Pretty much most jobs you can't say, "Yeah, I'm quitting. And by the way, you're still paying me."

    Re: Ed Reed at it again

    I think Ed really wants to stay a Raven. It doesn't make sense for him to keep threatening retirement the year before he enters free agency if he's looking for a big pay day. No team is going to tie money into a player that they are not sure will be around. He's scaring off other teams and killing his market value by trying to force the Ravens to re-sign him.

    Make it happen Oz!!!
    The way Reed talks, he doesn't appear to be willing to take one for the team. He wants to be paid. Honestly, it might be better for the Ravens to let him test free agency and show him that his value is at it's highest here in Baltimore.

    I think it does. The team is still responsible for any bonus money that he's already been paid. I don't know if it remains pro-rated or if it becomes due immediately like when a player is cut. But when they retire, the team does still have to take that cap hit from whatever bonus money that player has already been paid.

    Better a year too early than a year too late. Let's get what we can for him in a trade and move on. As great as Ed was,we didn't win a SB with him. Since Belichek is so in love with Ed. trade him to NE for drafts picks.

    Re: Ed Reed at it again

    Sounds like blasphemy to wonder if we could trade Reed but it's possible
    Yeah, Belicheck is in love with him and their secondary is ridiculously young. Of course it makes sense to bring in a wily vet and lead them


    But then our secondary is very young too. Even Pollard who seems he's been around forever is only 27 making him one of the older players.
    I say Ozzie ignores all contract discussions and lets him test FA and a deal is done then
    We'll know more then


    Ed Reed is looking at those deals done before the rookie salary scale.
    He was once the highest paid safety in the league but not anymore.
    If I was in an organization and a younger person earned more I think I'd feel hard done by too

    Are you kidding me? He broke up 3 would-be TDS to andre johnson who was getting behind coverage intercepting the game sealing throw.

    Any other safety, we lose that game.

    Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens FS Ed Reed said he was not referring to retirement when he said he is not fully committed for the 2012 season. He said he was referring to his mental preparation for the season. Reed said he is not considering retirement and hopes to play several more seasons.

    The salary he didn't earn doesn't impact the cap but the bonus money gets pushed up the same as if he was cut or traded. We had that happen with JO and McNabb. Since Reed is in the last year of his deal though there isn't an bonus from future years to get pushed forward so there would be no negative impact.

    Re: Ed Reed at it again

    I generally have liked Ed and recognize his talents. I have also cringed on some of his "Wild, Wild West" syndrome. His Motor-Mouth though does get old and as you get older, you start to let that define you. I have come to accept that Ed will run his mouth without the safety on and it just gets ignored.

    The Ravens let Ray test the market to see how that would play out. I do not see them treating Ed any differently. I am just concerned about how much his mouth becomes a distraction and how that tests Harbaugh. This stuff is not "team-like", but Harbs seems to have accepted Ed's mouth as just part of the package.

    I would say "Ed, just shut up and play. Or don't shut up and don't play." But I know that would go in one ear and out the other.
