I also believe that they believe a healthy Sharpton could be a decent option at ILB. I like Sharpton when he is healthy, but he seems to be bit by the injury bug quite often. I dont trust his health & wish they would look at other options as well, but this is the same group that thought James was a worthy starter so going in w/ an injury prone Sharpton wouldn't surprise me.
Mitchel could not beat out Cody with his back injuries and even when Cody went out with the ribs, he was rushed back to replace Mitchell. As I noted on another thread I think Phillips is okay with Mitchell starting. Not comparing my knowledge to Wade but think he is wrong. Agree with you on SHarpton who cannot stay on field.

Let Cody walk trade up for Jessie Williams. Dude is a gamechanger at the NT position.

I don't see anything desperate in the way the FO is handling this.

The FANS are the desperate ones here. They're the ones getting jittery because no one has been signed, yet.

Our FO? Cool. Doesn't appear to be worried at all. Methodical. Taking its time. If our FO was desperate, we would have already caved in to get Reed here. We would have offered him 7 mil a year for 3 years and he would have taken that back to the Ravens to say, "See? I am highly valued around the league" and then he would have accepted less money to play with the Ravens.

There's still a long time to go and a lot of moves to be made. Personally, if it's down between Woodson and Reed, I'd probably go Woodson. I'm just not sure how much more Reed's got in the tank and I think Woodson has more to give.

Yes.

I think Woodson could give us 1 good year. I don't think Reed has a full year left in him.

Either way, I expect us to draft a safety and I expect that safety to be starting in 2014. I don't think we're signing either Woodson or Reed expecting them to play longer than a year.

Curious as to how you decided Reed has only part of a season left in him? He had a very decent 2012.

Ed Reed - DB - Ravens
NFL.com reports the Ravens are "very pessimistic" about re-signing free agent Ed Reed.
Per reporter Ian Rapoport, the "belief" is that Reed is now seeking $4 million per year, but that it's "doubtful" the Ravens meet that price. $4 million is believed to be what the Texans are offering, so it could be only a matter of time before Reed stops peddling his wares and takes his talents his Houston.

Hopefully this drama comes to end soon & the Texans can possibly look into other areas of concern. "Hopefully" being the key word.

So the Ravens were offering him a deal less than $4 million/per year?

If that's the case, welcome to Houston, Ed Reed!

I can't argue with that number to me that's a good number for Ed, depending on what we have for a bonus up front to not have any dead money if we have to exit the contract.

I would be very supportive of the 3 year 12 million deal being floated around. Would like to know the guaranteed portion and years 1-2 pmt/cap hits. I'd be very pleased with this and the ability to cut him after year 2 with little cap ramifications.

Still crossing fingers. Love how Rick and Olsen are holding firm.

I didn't think he had that good of a 2012. Although he had plays here and there, he wasn't as consistent or nearly as good as he'd been in previous seasons.
