    With the Pats projected to be a lot under the salary cap next year, whats the chances BB would splurge for a player like Ed Reed. He was very complimentary off him last year, and is a Rodney like game changer. The Pats had money and didnt spend big in FA this year, but all the big names had question marks. Ed Reed, has almost none. Do you feel BB would spend to get him.

    i actually think he would spend more on Reed and would take him but Ravens likely arent going to let him walk..hes a playmaker..hes great against pass..good against run..hes a leader..hes witty(hid behind ref once lol) Ed Reed is 1 of my favorite players but Ravens have exchanged contract proposals with Reed and if they dont get him..some other team will spend way much more than we would one 1 player

    He loves Reed but I don't see him going nutty over any player. If Reed came at a small discount then we could talk but it's not likely.

    Didnt he fall off a lot last year from his usual production/play? For some reason I want to say he did.

    I would be ecstatic if we picked up Reed. In all seriousness, if there was any one player I could select to help our team, it would be Reed. Comes relatively cheap as a S at a need position (Rodney retiring? or Eugene to corner?), though someone will end up splurging, and is barely into his prime, not to mention that he has no off-field issues. There is no downside.

    Didn't Reed make a lot of positive comments about the Pats when the Ravens were in here last year? I remember thinking he was probably 'interviewing' for a job when he was free. Boy would that be nice. Reed is a perfect Patriot-type player.

    With the Ravens going to a 4-4 with 2 CB's and Ed Reed it seems hardly likely they won't pony up anything he wants.

    I think Belichick will be hoping James Sanders will step up this year.

    id say trade for him if hes not going to resign! dont let him hit market

    Eugene Wilson + 2nd or 3rd rounder for Ed Reed

    Before Harrison retires

    Reed + Harrison(strong)

    after Harrison retires

    Sanders + Reed(strong)

    I agree with your thought process that an upgrade in the safety spot seems like it should be a very realistic priority for 07. Ed Reed would be great and bring an edge that the secondary could use.

    I like seeing that list of quality safeties approaching FA, even if many will re-sign prior to hitting the market - it at least ups the odds of us having a shot. Oh, and I'd overpay for Ed Reed and lose exactly NO SLEEP over it. He's a top-5 impact defender in the NFL.

    Why would not the Ravens simply place the franchise tag on Reed??

    The franchise tag for safeties is typically the 3rd lowest. This year it was $4.109 million.

    I still remember numerous coaches saying Reed is overrated. Something along the lines of why do you think people keep throwing his way if he gets so many INTs. The answer was because he isn't very good naturally in coverage and teams feel they can beat him. He gives up a lot of plays for every good play he makes. Let's see what Sanders has this year...

    We will need someone to be there when Rodney is gone or retires as the SS. I think Wilson has the FS spot locked up for the next few years, that is if he can rebound again with Harrison at his side.

    Reed isnt overrated..thrown his way too much? Hes a safety..he usually takes middle of field and uses speed to get to side lines. He makes the plays..they dont come to him. He also loves to score..takes it from 106 yards out to score a TD? He lateralled a bunch of times .. at Miami he took the ball out of his teammates hand if u guys remember against BC. A lineman got a big and he came to side and pulled it out and ran it in from like 80 yards out
