Re: Ed Reed to visit Texans
Seems to me like a smoke screen to other NFL teams. Do you take a chance to wait till tomorrow to see if Reed sign with the Texans or do you sign other available S now? Or, approach Reed's agents by phone to offer a lot more than Texans can offer which is likely be around 6M and for other teams to persuade Reed's agents to listen, needs to be much more with a firm offer in place as Reed and his agents are in Houston for seemingly their final step of negotiation. Meaning, if other NFL team/s want Reed now, you need to come up with an offer that may exceed his value which limits your cap space.
Prior to Reed's FA visit, I am pretty sure his agents talked to several NFL teams and likely Houston had most intriguing numbers in place which may be negotiable for a little more to satisfy Reed's asking #.
Anyway, we will see it tomorrow.
