That's actually why it's an apt comparison. There were signs, in the case of Green, of what was to come. You don't take a guy who is injured or has been injured frequently of late, and expect him to improve at age 30, in Green's case. What Green did as a Texan was predictable.
Reed suffered from injury last season, despite playing through it, and his production suffered. To expect him to return to form at his age is just unrealistic. JMO, but it was stupid to let Quin go in favor of Reed, especially when the money was effectively the same. I was hoping for Swearinger on draft day, however, so I have hope that it won't matter much.
