Ed Reed counts more against our cap over the next three years than Quin will count vs the Lions' cap.
Honestly I'd be surprised if we keep Reed around for the 3rd year. Granted I haven't really looked at the contract figures too closely but I feel like we'll keep Reed for two years and then release him with very minimal cap consequences. Glover on the other hand would be more severe. I really liked him on this team and wish him the best but personally I'd rather have Reed over Quin for the next two seasons even at their respective ages.
