Maybe I'm missing something, but, is Ed Reed THAT important? I would have given my left testicle for him two years ago. But, now? I don't know. Does he still have any gas left? And, is whatever gas that's left worth it for Andre to restructure (which, as others have said, will only push these issues down the road, which will be worse in the long run)?
I'm not one of those "panic" people, and in no way am I panicking in this case. But sometimes I really don't understand this team.
I don't think Ed Reed is that important, BUT I do think filling a hole or 2 on the team with quality players is. If its Reed, then so be it but I think something needs to be done because 1 draft class will not fill all the needs w/ instant quality starters or at least the odds are against it & most of Smith's success stories have been players that have developed as opposed to instant success. I actually believe its time to go to plan B & give players such as Huff & Mikell a call. They could fill the gap & possibly be cheaper. The quicker the better, imo, because a lot of time has been wasted on Reed & the other players surely aren't waiting on the Texans.
