I thought for sure he'd resign with Baltimore. I only hope he's still got something left in the tank and Rick smith didn't just go Ahman green 2.0 on us.

Eddie Pleasant.

I think all the talk about drafting a safety is well warranted. This is actually a very rich safety draft. Why not invest in a safety in th3 third or fourth round???

I'm pretty sure that Pleasant won't be around, but they're will be a bunch around, no?

Maximum value of Ed Reed's deal with the Texans is $16 million for 3 years. Very strong deal for an older safety, especially in this market

You mean a front office that fills in a hole in the defense?

Your the one who brought up the QB.

Default Re: Ed Reed agrees to terms with Texans

love it. we needed 2 positions on defense IMO - a cover linebacker to pair with cushing, and a centerfielder. reed is that centerfielder. jjo, kareem, and mccain are all man to man corners very fitting for our defense, and manning is better closer to the box ... reed is exactly what we needed roaming over the top and would very much change games like against the pats and packers (our biggest weakness).

question - who are some of the notable safeties to play under wade phillips?

Hoping that Reed can stay healthy.

If he can, Reed and Manning are guys that can cause some turnovers.

Where is everybody getting the idea that Reed is going to be effective roaming over the top? He was an OLB, and apparently they're converting him. Why? Has he done anything to suggest he knows what he's doing? This is a completely different role and people are just assuming he's going to flourish.

I'm not trying to argue. I legitimately want to know. Did Reed cover a lot more in college?

I'm sure we're talking about Ed Reed roaming the deep middle.

You're thinking Brooks Reed moving to ILB.

Hey, what happened to all the talk about firing Smith, Kubes, etc...? I thought Smith was inept! Not a good GM! What happened?

As for the contract (16 million over 3 years), I hope it doesn't mess up sigining Cush next year or Watt the year after. Anyone know if these figures are right and how much is guaranteed?

Default Re: Ed Reed agrees to terms with Texans

That amount of money hurts this signing. I hope the guaranteed money is spent after one year, because I don't trust him to make it through two. Still, it's mind boggling that the front office valued Reed at 5.33m a year for 3 years, yet wouldn't offer Glover Quin the 4.7m a year he got from the Lions.

Obviously, our FO think highly of Reed than Quin. Perhaps, Reed fits better in what Wade is trying to do with our D?

I think they highly value him being on a championship team, and the confidence he'll give our players with him being back there.

Quin is the younger guy and is getting better while Reed is declining but i think they think what we're missing is mental not physical.

Default Re: Ed Reed agrees to terms with Texans

Here's what this signing implies to me:

1) Rick Smith is establishing a history of accurately gauging a player's true market value. Many GM's and scouts never develop that sense. Whether he's doing the evaluation or a staff, it is contributing to some shrewd decisions.

2) He will no longer ignore the issue of lacking veteran leadership. He is acknowledging that Andre and Cushing can only do so much.

3) This proves to Andre that the organization is willing to pay an aged, experienced player for his leadership. It makes the case that Andre will one day retire as a Texan.

Isn't the impact related to how the contract is structured moreso than the reported max value? We still don't know for sure how much is guaranteed, how much is signing bonus, and how much is incentive-based.

I would hope that the $4 mil/yr for 3 yrs is all that's guaranteed and the rest of the 16 mil is signing bonus and incentives. Even better would be 4-4.5 mil for two yrs with an option for a 3rd year plus the signing bonus/incentives making up the delta.
