2. Draft his replacement in this draft or next years draft. That way you could have him train his replacement.

I wouldn't mind Reed coming in at all. As long as that is the only big FA signing we do.
I think a 2 year signing and drafting a safety was the plan all along. The writing was kind of on the wall yesterday and even more evident today. Texans probably were even waiting for the Quin signing to have Reed visit because of perception, but its pretty clear what the thinking is now.

Bring him in for 2 years and draft a safety to groom.

Not to mention he's arguably the smartest and most instinctual safety to ever play the game possibly. Some people would hate the chances he takes at times if he were to sign here, but its how he plays.

Yep, he takes chances.

But that chance he takes gets QBs to doubt that throw knowing he's back there. That one second of doubt could be a sack.

Or maby the QB throws to someone else and that could prove favorable with Kareem and especially Joseph covering their guys...Manning is no slouch either.

With Cushing coming back as well...defense could be really good. I hope this will be a one way trip for Reed.

Bill Belly called him the greatest Safety ever.

He's a lil past his prime but he's still top notch.

I hate when people use the "intangibles" tag to justify guys, but the intangibles he'd bring would be exponential.

I hope so too...... I think it's very reasonable that word has been passed to the FO from Andre in that offseason that he would like to play here. If so, then it makes sense why an offer wasn't even made to GQ.

The FO over the past couple of years has always seemed to have a plan even if it's not a popular one with the fans, and there's a lot that goes on behind the scenes with negotiations. With Andre and Reed both still having homes back in Miami it wouldn't surprise me to know that something has been up.

I don't see that here Vinny..... I think the team looked at Quin and saw a good player we'd have to make a 5 year commitment to possibly depending on how his contract was structured. I don't see much of a down side to signing Reed to a 2 year deal. We gave Green $30 million I believe.

Reed is still an effective player and many would argue even at his age still better than GQ. I just fail to see the downside to him being here for 2 years while we groom his replacement.

Hmm,

I can't believe so many are down on Ed Reed, he's got *SOOOO* much experience that he can bring to this defense, intelligence, and a leader. Are his best years behind him, I think that question is obvious, but I still think he can help this YOUNG defense grow, and carry that same attitude and tenacity that the Ravens defense has.

I don't see how this can be bad.. other than he wants 6+ million a year.

A J has incentive clauses in his contract.

I'd rather see someone like Michael Huff than someone like Reed going on his 12th season. Reed is past his prime. Why don't the ratbirds just pay the man if he is so valuable? Personally, I don't want the used up players from good teams as they move forward and we take on the reasons they are moving on....we run tons of man. Reed can't cover in man like he used to and he can't close the gap like he used to in space. I just don't like the idea of him at this point in his career. If we ran tons of cover2 or we ran lots of zone in general I (may) get it...but with Wade's defense I don't understand the reasoning.

We use 3 Safety all the time. I'd be ok w Ed Reed for the right price IF we brought in someone else. Keo is horrible. I worry when he's on the field and attempting to play Defense. No amount of coaching can fix that.
