My write up on the essential Ed Reed info for fans
Basically, I focus on the stuff you want to know with a little commentary.
Personally, I think some of the hype about Reed getting one over on the Texans etc is overblown. It's a curiosity, and talk show thing but bygones. I think he is just an experienced player, coming off a long season so you are going to feel a bit dinged up, had a thorough physical that missed a slight labrum tear. Once he started really working out in earnest, it stuck with him, they checked it out, decided on surgery now.
He doesn't want to set a timetable for return because he is in middle of rehab process, hopes for no setbacks. Which is a totally reasonable point of view.
Nice to see him come out for 2nd day of minicamp to watch the young players.
