Who says this FO doesn't do shyte in the offseason?
I don't think this takes safety off our draft board. Now you draft a safety to learn from Ed Reed, and in two years you'll have a strong backfield.

I am very happy if this is true. We need a veteran WR damn it. Drafting a rookie will not give us the immediate impact we need now.

know there are people who think safety Ed Reed is done. They think he's slowed. They think he's hanging on to make cash and pad his legacy. There are those who believe all of that. I am not one of them.

Houston won the Reed derby and they won it big time. I know in texting with one Baltimore Ravens official there is genuine sadness that he's gone. The feeling in that organization is that Reed is still highly effective and now the Texans have him.


Houston desperately needed someone like Reed on that defense. Almost every time I've seen that secondary in a big spot, against a good quarterback, it gets absolutely torched. Tom Brady destroys a lot of secondaries, but what he did last season against Houston is considered a misdemeanor in 15 states.

Congratulations to the Texans for signing Reed.

I remember when we signed Jonathan Joesph and Daneal Manning. That was supposed to get us to the AFC Title Game, or to the Super Bowl. Instead, we have continued to fall short because we of weakness at WR and QB.

That hasn't changed.

thats debateable Urlacher took one to the house this year and still shows flashes, but Im not calling on him to cover Gronkowski, we were weak as hell up the middle last year, and Im comfortable saying Urlacher plays the inside run much better than either James or Ruud. Im assuming that Manning is going to be in the box much more (which i feel is a role he will thrive in) i think between he and Cush (assuming he's back to form) that you can cover up Urlacher's deficiencies. He's probably going to go to an inter division rival, but at this time next year I wouldnt be surprised to see him near 100 combined tackles for whoever he plays for.

i disagree, a 1st round WR is actually a good bet. Youthful legs to stretch out a defense and allow Dre to work the middle. We didnt have that deep threat at all last year (i was counting on Jean, but he was underwhelming) a veteran WR with speed will cost too much for this team.

Good news that we got him, but I won't be jumping for joy until I see the structure of the deal. If its 4m a year as has been speculated, then ill be very happy

Do we have any reliable source with the value/length/guarantees/etc. on the contract yet?

I'm excited that Reed will be coming here, and hope he's not washed up (sure doesn't seem like he is). I just hope they didn't massively overpay him and that the contract is set so that he can be cut without much penalty if it turns out he is washed up after all.

Nobody is saying he is going to be here for ten years!!!!! This defense lacked veteran leadership last year. Someone to calm their asses down when playing the big games in January. Reed is a leader and his experience in those big games will go further than you think. Of course we are going to draft a safety in one of the premium rounds. And that individual will learn under one of if not the greatest safety to ever play the game. His knowledge of the game is priceless.

Now we need to draft a safety in rounds 3, 4, or 5 to develop while Reed is starting. There would be no better mentor than a future HOFer and one of the best ever to play his position.

Pending the contract details I just want to say I am proud of this front office for going out and signing a notable free agent. Far too often they have been criticized for not taking chances in free agency. Signing Ed Reed is a gamble that can definitely pay off for us. Kudos to the front office for going out and getting their man.

Well, whatever he's getting this year, 4 mil or 6, I bet it's structured so that Smith can ****can him next season if he wants to with minimum cap hit.

I'm not jumping for joy over it. 35 years old, passed his prime, draws a lot of penalties, and misses a lot of tackles. On second thought, he should fit right in.
