T-P Triplett talked to him yesterday and asked him about being a Saints fan growing up in New Orleans. That was his response that he tweeted
He might be politicking for getting that one last contract. The bad news Pro Football Focus ranked Ed Reed 59th among 88 qualifying safeties in 2012.
Reed is certainly well into his decline phase at age 34. He missed 15 tackles and allowed 17.3 yards per catch this season, both seventh-worst among safeties. Perhaps Reed's free-agency market won't be as strong as initially thought. -per rotoworld Image: http://assets.nydailynews.com/polopoly_fs/1.1247458.1359094753!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_635/ed-reed.jpg
Sad thing is that Harper & Jenkins ranked 87 & 88th out of all safeties. We're stuck with Jenkins cuz of he's cheap. I'll be disappointed if we don't get at least a restructured deal for Harper. $15mil of cap hit the next two seasons for him is obscene.
A 3rd Rd Rambo or Philip Thomas would be great additions into the competition mix IMO.
If we got 75% of what Sharper brought for a year outta big Ed I'd like to see him finish his career off at home.
