Ed Reed.

Posted: 1/29/2013 3:11 PM

Ed Reed. 


Sign him.  Don't let the Pats get him.  I grimaced when we passed on him for Byran Thomas (a solid player) in the draft.  Can he play SS?  Can Landry play SS?  Don't let Belichick get his hands on this guy.  Please.

Oh poo.
If Reed wanted to work for peanuts he'd give BAL a "home town" discount and stay right where he is - which is probably exactly what's going to happen.
No way would Hoodie pay him ginormous amounts of money at his advanced age.

It's one thing to have a healthy respect for Hoodie's abilities as a coach and general manager but let's not get carried away.
He's not Jay-ZUZ turning out fishes and loaves or making wine from water - YET.
You have to have sneaking suspicions once in a while - true - but he's not REALLY descended from the Olympic Gawds of Rome & Greece.

RE: Ed Reed. 


Idk man he's 34...well into his decline as he didn't play all that well this year (at least nowhere near Ed Reed standards) and he would probably cost too much for us to sign anyway since he'd likely want a couple of more years making $6-7 million...he's definitely a FS in my opinion and yes, Landry could easily play SS even though he played mostly FS for us this year since I believe that's what he played @ LSU and he played SS in Washington before Sean Taylor was murdered...

But in the end, I think it's inevitable that Reed either ends up back with Baltimore or in New England or Indianapolis...I doubt he signs with the Jets so it's definitely a longshot

I remember being disappointed when that happened (I didn't know anything about Thomas, but I knew about Reed.) That said, I would focus on Landry instead of Reed at this point.

RIP WIC 2005-2008

Re: Ed Reed. 


Ed Reed talks waaaay too much about retirement at this point in his career for me to believe he will still have the hunger needed to succeed.

Double that if he goes out and wins a Superbowl this weekend.

Agreed, saw them a lot last year and he has dropped off a lot. Just not the same guy, buyer beware.

He paid Shaun Ellis $5 mill for <10 snaps per game.

RE: Ed Reed. 


I also cringed when we drafted Thomas and passed on Reed. He was so productive in college with 21 Ints. If he was the missing piece and we were close to being a Superbowl contender I'd go after him because he's still better than most. However, what would be the point for the 2013 Jets who will probably being doing well to get over 8-8.

Pass. Jets are not a SB team next year, and if he gets more than a one-year deal, the contract will be an albatross around the team's neck long-term.

Re: Ed Reed. 


I dont see reed leaving baltimore but then again i didnt see dawkins leaving philly.  If its financially possible Id give it a go its definately a step in the right direction

Re: Ed Reed. 


Depends what is more important to him, Money or Superbowl as to where he ends up.. People are saying if he wins another superbowl he will probly sign for the money if he loses he will go for one more shot.

Im hoping he and Ray Lewis win the Superbowl, That way Reed can come back to Miami for on a one or 2 year deal.

RE: Ed Reed. 


Ed Reed is pissed @ Ozzie Newsome GM in Baltimore, so I doubt he goes back to the Ravens. I think he will be looking for the "Golden Parachute" type deal. We won't be able to afford him.

We will also not be able to re-sign Landry SS, especially after he was marketing himself @ the Pro Bowl.

We defiantly need to draft a stud safety (Vaccarro, McDonald, Reid, Rambo, Lester) in the first 3 rounds.

In the mean time I would have my Wake boy Bush @ FS and switch Bell back to SS.

Go Jets...Cyborg
