If Reed signs in Houston will we get safety riding slowly into the sunset with saddlebags full of gold or a fiery competitor wanting to show his skills?

He'd probably want to stick it to Baltimore for not bringing him back, and show his skills.

We would get the equivalent of Ken Stabler in Houston, Joe Namith in LA, and Earl Campbell in New Orleans.

If one more person asks if the deal is 10 or 11 million per year....pow! straight to da' moon, Alice.

I think if another team was going to get Ed Reed, it would have happened by now. Texans probably the best offer on the table.

.....According to my sources.

A couple of Ed's tweets and conversations on twitter hint he doesn't think Baltimore's offer is good enough.

Right. That's what this is about, the number of 10 or 11 is for a total 2-yr deal, meaning Houston reportedly is ranging around 5.5-per year, for 2 years.

But people are getting confused and thinking it's 10 or 11 per YEAR. Granted, the wording of these reports can be confusing at first glance...but still, 10 or 11 per year would be Carwin/Eagles type of contract. LOL.

Ed might decide to just retire, too. The longer it drags out, the more he'll decide being retired sounds good.

An offer lingering on the table, with no other team really making noise or having Ed in for visits, and him stretching this out unnecessarily long like this...makes me wonder if we should pull the offer and take it as a sign that it wasn't the hot deal we first thought it was (for us).

Reed will end up a Texan. That's my call. I may be wrong, but its just how I see it playing out.

However, our deal may be the highest Ed has on the table, which is why he's taking so long trying to see if anyone will outbid.

FWIF, from Profootballfocus:
Quote:
2. Ed Reed, Safety

In his prime there wasn’t a safety like Ed Reed. Clearly that time has passed. He would still walk away with a positive grade in coverage on the back of four interceptions and seven pass break-ups, but it was only the 17th-highest coverage grade of all safeties. Add in some sub-par run defense and too many missed tackles (15) and he was a long way from being worth the money.

2012 Cap Hit: $8.5m
2012 Performance Based Value: $2M
Value Differential: -$6.5m
BTW, PFF rates Reed as 59th of all safeties.

It was a down year for him no doubt, but he played with some very average players all year as well.
