This is why I didn't want to sign him. Sounded like that's what he wanted and it would be stupid to give it to him.

I was ok with a cheap price, but even 5 mil makes me nervous.

Ed Reed leaving Reliant Stadium without a signed contract just shows that the Texans ARE NOT committed to bringing a Super Bowl trophy to Houston. Boo to Rick Smith and Gary Kubiak. We are in cap trouble, have more holes than we had at the end of the season and Schaub is going to be here for the next couple of years.

So the Texans aren't committed to win because they didn't sign Reed to a big contract? Though you believe the team is in cap trouble? See any conflict between those two statements?

For us, that $1 or $2 mill is vital for other needs. And frankly this possibly Ed trying for a big deal with the Texans, cashing in a favor of Andre Johnson to take a run at joining our team at the same time. Two birds with one stone. After this, our front office should tell AJ to stop the twitter invitations to his pals out there (psssst! It doesn't work out well for us, Andre.).
Well, let's think about this. It's not my money, so I really don't care. Aj is saying he is willing to restructure, so more or less, it's his money. If he is saying he will restructure his contract so they can bring Ed Reed in...... Let's say Andre restructures to clear another $10M over 2 years... that's Reed, plus $3M/yr for the next two.

I'm not saying I want to pay him $7M. I really don't care how much they pay. But like Quin & Barwin, sometimes it just has to "sound" like $7M/yr. Throw Flacco in there too.

We could sign him to a 3yr $21M contract ($7M/yr) But guarantee him $8M over the next two years plus incentives.

Well, restructuring really isn't the same thing as taking a pay cut. Any player is willing to restructure because it's putting more money in his pocket now, and potentially guaranteeing future unguaranteed salary. So, AJ really isn't sacrificing anything by restructuring.

If the Texans FO thinks that ER is the kind of piece that puts them over the top and helps them be a real contender, then they'll restructure someone and will pay him his 7MM. If not, then they won't. It might be an indication of what they really think the position that this team is in.

The Texans signing a 35 year old safety to a 7 million a year contract would indicate the FO is brain dead. You did read that Ed Reed wanted a bigger contract, right? Boo to you for being such a reactionary, low-information fan.
