Do Andre what way? All he'd have to do is say to Andre: "hey man, thanks for all your help. But, Baltimore made me a better overall deal to stay."
And that would be that. Andre would understand.
Yes, I do think Reed is using the Texans as leverage, but, that doesn't mean that he's necessarily using his friendship with Andre. Was it Andre's boneheaded decision to grab the private jet and fly to Atlanta and get him, and then make a big deal about doing that in the media? I doubt it.
Reed is playing this masterfully, IMO. He's using the Texans, yet, he can also preserve his friendship with Andre.
