OMG..please say this is all a bad rumor. Oh well...good luck Ed. Thought he would want to go out on top.


According to league sources close to the Boston Globe, the New England Patriots will try to bring Baltimore Ravens free safety Ed Reed to the team by giving him $5 million per year. If this happens, then the Patriots will likely not key in on drafting a safety early on in the 2013 NFL Draft, and they will instead go for a wide receiver.....

Go for it. Ed is not worth 5 mill at this point in his career. If Ed doesn't want to stay loyal to the team that drafted him, then go ahead. Be exposed just like all the other players we've gotten rid of for one reason or another.

To sign other players like Welker?

I don't think it would bother me so bad if he went to Indy. But I just can't stand the fact that he may be in a Patriots uniform.

Lol please don't start the panic. If you guys remeber, last year reports were that Ed Reed turned down a contract offer from the Ravens for 8M per. Ed talked disrespect because that 8M per was less then the top young safeties in the NFL.

If Ed turned down 8M per, why leave for 5M?

I've said all along that no other team will value and be willing to pay Ed Reed like the Ravens. They'll offer Ed like 3yrs 19-20M for Ed to retire here.

This news actuually hurts Ed Reed because NE is probably the only other team that will pay Ed and if they are only willing to offer 5M Ed loses leverage.

So i guess that means Kruger's gonna stay too? LOL. Don't go off what they say. In the end, money is more important than loyalty. That's business. I love Reed, don't get me wrong. But if the Patriots wanna throw $5M a year on a safety who can't tackle then..*waves goodbye*.

I wouldn't go off this rumor anyway to be honest. Remember when Ray had the Cowboys and Jets ready to "throw more money at him"? Free agency hit, and he came back with his tail between his legs.

True,but I think Ed tasted something this year with winning the Superbowl.He saw how Brady looked against our D. And Joe knows Ed better then any QB in the league.Ed wants another ring and thats something money can't buy.Our team is a family and Ed is now the Father of our Ravens,and soon to be Baby Ravens.Daddy isn't leaving his nest trust me!!

The article put a question mark after the end of the headline. All newspapers and sports stations do now is try to drum up news. Im guessing someone from the GLOBE was talking with a waterboy from the Patriots and he was saying how cool it would be if Ed Reed signed a 5 million dollar contract with them. This article followed that conversation.
