This is a guy they just signed and want to receive value for. I don't see how treating him "in a manner of distrust" is going to foster the type of relationship that yields the best results.
They didn't do enough homework and it was a risky signing anyway, just because he's an older player coming off recent injury. They're basically up a creek and Ed Reed's doctors and genetics have the only paddle.
