You make some great points, but man Michael Huff blows. Seen way too many Chargers/Raiders games with that guy playing and he's not very good. I'd rather have Kerry Rhodes before him.

Maybe Wade sees a change in philosophy for us. Might be that Wade watched the playoffs and realized that you can't consistently bait teams into taking advantage of favorable match ups anymore.

It would be highly atypical for this FO to bring in someone like Ed Reed.

Wade would really have to change his scheme with Reed and Manning as his safeties. It's probably for the best anyway. The man scheme is AWFUL against the spread that teams are going to nowadays.

As said earlier better than what we have on the roster right now. Pair him with DMan the guy is a ball hawk and a proven leader who is not skeeret of the bright lights of a big game ie MNF, Pats, 2nd round of play offs and is not a half azzer. It's balls to the wall with Reed with no BS right in the same mode as Watt, Cush,and JJo. 2 years and draft one this year. Very good safety draft this year and having Reed in the locker room is PRICELESS.

Meh...

Depends on what he wants. He's going into his 12th season and could be a short term solution. Ney, I meant a really good - short term solution. That said, I would've rather invested more to keep Glover Quin as he is way younger.

I'd prefer Rhodes, too, but Huff has been playing out of position a lot. In 2012, he was moved to LCB for games 3-16. The guy has experience at all DB positions, but FS is his natural.

Ed Reed for a season and hopefully we can draft someone in rounds 3-5 to take over the position in 2014.

True, he has been moved around a lot in his time there but he had some really bad seasons there. I know he improved some from those, but he could only go up from being that bad.

If I had to rank the guys out of who I want based on what I think they'll cost to get them I'd say:

1. Reed
2. Rhodes
3. Woodson
4. Mikell (I don't think he's signed with anyone yet)
5. Aso and move him to safety

I'd like to believe those of you that say Reed is over the hill. Yet, every year there he is ... making plays in the most important games.

This team needs more winners IMO. That swagger is infectious, and the more of those guys that can come around the better. Draft a young S and let the man groom him a year or two.

I write this knowing full well that it wont happen, but trying to discredit the move using his playing ability is futile. The man leads by example. Pay the man Rick.

Realistically, he's fetching the highest contract so the Ravens can match it.

That may be true, but I guarantee you Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, & the great Joe Flacco would rather see Demps between Kj & Jj than Ed Reed.

Agreed. We're going to need all of the big-time playmakers we can get on defense. Because that new-look Broncos offense is going to be highly explosive with the addition of Wes Welker. Denver is probably going to be the team to beat in the AFC but we shouldn't be far off from them.

Not sure about your last paragraph though? I've got inside information telling me Ed Reed will sign with Houston (practically a done deal), but I can't really disclose my information until it's official. So just wait it out a little while my friend.

Apparently we've been hot after him ever since FA began. Makes me wonder if we truly wanted to re-sign Quin or not.

Denver will have to add many,many more dink and dunk plays for him because he doesnt have the separation and quickness that he once had, strong on paper, will have to see how that will mesh, but no doubt the Bronco's arent playing around, that Vasquez signing was real strong also. Hmm, wonder where they are getting the money to pay all these guys, Peyton included. Oh yeah they have a great GM.

Forgive me for being crass, but if I had a nickle for every forum contributor that i've run into through the years that said he had 'insider info' and the such, well i'd have like 20 cents, but you get my drift. I hope you're right, but like other guys here have said, too flashy and atypical for the Texans to sign a polarizing player, they are too conservative and 'classy' for all that nonsense.
