Re: Ed Reed to visit Texans
Houston's offer was competitive. That's why no other teams have swooped in to top it.
A guy like Reed is going to need a little time to mentally adjust to the fact that he is no longer worth what he once was. It's a reality check on the ego, and it's also why McNair and Smith utilized the private jet. It's a gesture that says, "We really want you here, so no disrespect intended by this offer that is based on market value."
Reed will be ready to sign when he comes to terms with his declined value, which may not even happen until he watches his former team start working out other safety FA's.
