Don't blame me. That's what my sources are saying, while tripping balls on rad shrooms in the danky basement of some old lady's house in Pearland.
I think we have the same source. Says something will happen in the next 48 hours.

Your source has no credibility. I defy you to find a basement in Pearland.

I don't know. I feel like he would have taken $7M back to the Ravens if that's what we had offered him.

However, I wasn't sitting in the room with him, so my "feel" may be way off base. I'd like to think if Rick Smith thought he would sign for $7M it would be a done deal.

Now, I used to sell cars for a living (that was a long time ago) & I know many times it's not the deal itself that is important, but the perception of it. Like the Barwin deal, I'm sure there is a way to structure this thing so that Reed can walk away saying he's got a $7M/yr deal when only $5.5 is guaranteed this year.

I think I could have closed him. Understand I am talking out of my ass being that I've never talked to anyone about "settling" for $5.5M/yr

As for the Texans, a league source with knowledge of the situation characterized the Texans' initial three-year offer as low enough that a fast deal was unrealistic.
This is the bad part imo, & reason the Texans should have egg on their face.



If you're going to go all, "Moving on up" on him, send out the Jet, roll out the red carpet, wine & dine.... then get all "unrealistic" when it's time to start talking money, then what's the point?

Probably exactly why they took out all the stops. Look at our beautiful facility, look at how good we treat our players, look at our great city and look at how excited the fans are.. now please come play for us on the cheap.


Ive been really busy lately so I havent been able to keep up with the Texans like I usually do.. but from someone who is just reading the headlines.. it appears as though we are dead set on not making the playoffs for a third time.

If things dont improve soon we are gonna be looking at another few years of rebuilding come 2014.

If I'm Ed reed I'd take a little less money to go back to Baltimore. Really I'd have little interest in joining the texans for several reasons.

This is a dead issue as far as I'm concerned.

Look at the last few SB champs: they build through the draft, undrafted FA's and signing depth thru Veteran FA aquisitions. Steelers, Giants, Pats, Ravens,Packers, etc....

My sources tell me the Texans put on the whole dog & pony show out of respect for A.J.'s desire to have his buddy here -- but it stopped at an exorbitant contract number.

My sources also say Taylor Swift is about to write a song about Matt Turk -- who knew they were dating? -- and that may delay the Texans bringing Turk back into the fold.

I'd guess they were taking out all stops for the things they could offer outside of the salary cap, because they are limited with the actual cap.

If I'm not mistaking they offered 5mil per year to Reed, that seems like a fair offer for a player at his stage in his career, no?

If Reed isn't liking what the market thinks he's worth, he should retire.

The Texans need to move their ass on to plan B at the position and quit dickin with this guy if he's looking to get overpaid. Personally, I don't think he's even worth what we're currently offering.

THREE years???? A three year contract???? I hope if that report is accurate, the first 2 years are the only ones that have significant guaranteed money!

Rumor is that people are seeing him here in Chicago..not talking to the Bears but shopping at the American Girl Doll store on Michigan avenue...he is a doll collector...allegedly. Take that for what its worth.

If I were Reed, I would stick around for another year or two before retire as there still money to be made. We are talking about at least 4~5 Mil $ x 2 years right? Would you retire and give up that kind of money? After retirement, there's no guaranteed money. I would like to secure with more money before my retirement. Wouldn't you?

Obviously someone thinks that was "unrealistic" that's what was in the quoted article.

Personally I think $5M is a good number, but I don't know if it's a "need to jump on it right now" good number. Bringing him in as early as we did in the FA period, sending out the Jet & overall making a big deal out of it, if we weren't prepared to throw out a "need to jump on it right now" good number, we shouldn't have wasted our time.
"We'll guarantee you $5.5M in 2013. We'll guarantee you $5.5M in 2014. What are you willing to guarantee for an extra $1.5M?"
Because I'm willing to pay a man of Mr.Reeds stature & reputation $7M but I need some guarantees. Guarantee me 16 games & I'll get you $500K. Guarantee me 5 INts & I'll get you $500K. Guarantee me less than a dozen missed tackles & I'll get you $500K. Guarantee me a touchdown & I'll get you $500K.


I should have been an NFL general manager
