Who says Reed won't do the same to stay w/ the only team he has known as a pro. I believe it's time to put Reed's feet to fire & do what's best for the Texans before they are left w/ scraps.
Another team offered Asomugha more than $60 million?
It would make sense that Smith knew what the Ravens were willing to pay before he made his offer. The meeting was: "Here's what we think of you, here's how you fit what we do, here's what we're willing to pay you." It wasn't part of a multi bid process. It was one shot. Smith does not make that shot unless he knows what cards the other players are holding.
