Well, mentoring would be nice to have, if we had any safety to mentor. I honestly don't expect the Texans to draft a safety with a 3rd or higher if they sign Reed or Woodson. I think they will go for other positions that have holes and spend a 5-7th on safety like they always have. I'm leery about picking up a guy for "mentoring" purposes, unless they are really cheap. 2m or less per year would be fine with me, but I doubt either one of these guys go for less than 4m a year.
If we are talking about 2013 on-field impact, I think Reed is the better bet, but either one of them could miss games. Woodson only played in 9 of the Packers's 18 games last year. Reed at least played in every game, even if he sat out a half or whatever for a groin pull.
