I've been thinking and I have a feeling that bringing back Ed Reed to play free safety on a couple of downs isn't such a bad thing after all. Ed is still a ball hawk as evidence by his INTs last year. I also think he brings the defensive swagger back and will be a coach on the sideline and a mentor to all the young DBs and defensive players over all. 

 

I was one of those who wanted to have him retire with Ray, but since he's chosen not to retire, why not bring him back and give him a shot? You never know what we could get with Ed. If it doesn't work out, he can retire a Raven and all is well. But if he plays well enough to start for us, then who is better than Ed Reed?

 

I know it isn't a very popular idea, but just thought I would throw it out there and rekindle the debate a little...

Why? We have a lot of young talent at FS. There's no need. This would only set back the development of our future safeties.

 

EDIT: And if we were to bring him in for "a couple of downs" and to bring swagger back, then it's a waste of a roster spot and cap room.

 

No thanks!

Here's my issue with this idea. Ed Reed offers absolutely nothing on ST and you're talking about bringing him in to strictly be a rotational defensive player with no other value than being a coach and a ball hawk. That's essentially it. My problem here is that what does he bring other than his ball hawking skills? Trawick, Levine, Elam, Stewart, Brooks are all players who are being used in both roles--CB and S and they all can play ST. Ed can't do that. Miles is looking good as well, and he can also pick off passes as we saw. I don't think we have the roster spots to make this happen for a player in such a limited role.

The safety position is set, we already have Brooks, Stewart and Hill. Ed would be a nice coach though...

I've a feeling ed has a value and he'd rather sit at home than play for less than it with the stage his body is at. Not worth a life changing injury for peanuts, to him.

For nostalgia sake of having the greatest Safety to ever play the game back in purple and black and sportin' the #20 jersey?  Yes!  But for common sense? No!
