Like every time a big-name player is linked with Houston and you know as soon as you hear it that it's bs. The team would make an offer matching their needs and not the player's desires/expectations, and the prima donna would move on to another sucker. I can't even count the number of wide receivers that have been rumored to be interested in the Texans over the years, and yet seemed always to sign elsewhere.

Look guys, we made an offer that GM thought was reasonable and Reed left. Give him 24 hours to accept and move on. It's business. Who cares if McNair sent his jet. He did what he thought was needed.

Ok guys here the news you've been waiting for!!!!

I have a friend with an awesome connection, who has a source who worked with a guy , who was in school with a player that keeps in close contact with another player through twitter, and says he's friends with Ed Reeds third cousin who happens who happens to live in a nbeiboring state and drives down to see there grandma all the time and supposably a grandson was told that the Texans might have a chance, but only if the money is more than what he is worth, unless he can't find a better deal, but he still might think about it because he's friends with dre and they went to the U, but he still needs a big pay check to retire with, so he still thinking about it, according to the grandsons brother who happened to be friends with the guy writing this, which doesn't know how to use periods, or make sentences only commas, and exclamations!!!

Ok, hope that clears things up,
Can we end this thread now!

John Harbaugh 'very hopeful' on signing Reed

A week ago, it looked like safety Ed Reed would never return to the Baltimore Ravens after taking a private jet to visit with the Houston Texans. Now, there's increased optimism that he could come back to Baltimore.


Ravens coach John Harbaugh told reporters Tuesday that he was "very hopeful" on the team's chances of re-signing Reed.

"On the hopeful scale Id say its of high hope," Harbaugh said at the NFL owners meetings Tuesday. "Its high on the measuring stick. Well just have to see how it works out.

Contrary to previous reports, Reed is not close to a deal with the Texans, according to The Houston Chronicle. The paper is reporting the Texans offered Reed $4 million a year, which is far below his asking price of $6-$7 million per season.

Reed's agent is in the process of contacting other teams, but it seems like the Ravens would have a chance to match any offer given his ties to the team. Harbaugh has kept in contact with Reed through text messages this offseason.

"Ed and I are very close and I know he would tell you the same," Harbaugh said. "Our relationship has just blossomed. Its been good, but this year with Ed especially, we really just got close."

Harbaugh said he doesn't feel Reed is close to making a decision. Beyond that, he's not making any prediction about Reed, only saying that he has his fingers crossed.

Looks like John and Ed patched things up after the "mutiny"... lol

If he won't take $4 million-per...if we could even up it to $5 million-per and he'd still be wishy washy and need days to consider....then I'm ok with us pulling away and looking elsewhere.

Sometimes the best deal is the one you never made. This has become a situation of Ed looking for money and not necessarily opportunity. We don't need that in 2013, we need guys who believe we can get it done. Not looking for one last ride out of NFL City at the expense of our team's cap and roster spot(s).

I'm officially hoping we walk away and go get the other possible secondary players that fit the budget plan.

Based on what happened...

Maybe provide a link or paste the tweet or snippet of Internet information to help us to not make jokes of the situation.

Not trying to attack you, just saying that that's how we got to the endless joking in the first place.

Where did you hear of this? Was it on twitter or ESPN or on radio, etc.? I'm all up for new information, just curious as to where you heard it.

Totally hear you. Was really asking for some substantiation from someone, myself!

Heard a couple comments from McNair about being careful with cap and having to extend WAtt and Cush. Sounds like we've got our price and aren't budging.
