Ed Reed counts more against our cap over the next three years than Quin will count vs the Lions' cap.
cap space is different than what we actually dishes out each year .
We are only responsible to pay $6M to get Reed to play in 2013; the Lions spend $250K more.
If both players last thru 2014, the Lions would still have to spend $250K more in actual money.
There's no guarantee that we even bring Reed back on 2014.
