What Reed can still do is ballhawk and make plays in centerfield. With the pressure our front 7 gets on QBs, Reed will have lots of playmaking opportunities. I think this is the point. Quin is solid. However, he doesn't fit the makeup of their high pressure, big play defense... At $1 million per year, he was an asset. However, they can't spend $5 million a year on a non-playmaker at safety and also spend all the money they plan to in the front 7 (Cushing, Watt, A.Smith, Mercilus, Reed, Barwin or replacement)
What pressure? That was our biggest problem. When your DE in a 3/4 is your leading sacker you have problems.
