Will Ed Reed get another shot with a team in the NFL? With the Jets?

reedweb15s-4-web.jpg

 

In an interview with his former teammate Lardarius Webb, Ed Reed stated he is "still preparing to play." Reed was attending a charity softball game at M&T Bank Stadium; Reed says he "knows teams that needs safeties." Reed also stated he is "Not going to be in anybody's training camp."

 

It sounds like Ed is waiting for a particular team to contact him saying "It would have to be the right fit." While it is true that this could be a number of things, or just Reed trying not to sound desperate, it could also be him trying to reunite with his original team the Ravens who he had 9 pro bowl seasons out of 11 with. Or could it be the Jets who he revived his season with last year? Either way if Reed is signed it probably won't be until the end of the off season, or possibly even during the season. 

 

There is no doubt Reed has lost a step, or even two, but he can still be good in a mentor's role. Reed also showed he can still make some plays grabbing 3 INTs for the Jets last year. While it would seem Reed would be confined to a backup role, the Jets might be a good landing spot for him. He could help Dawan Landry mentor the younger safeties in Calvin Pryor, Antonio Allen, and Josh Bush. Surely Rex Ryan would be pulling for the Jets to bring Reed back, and as the off season rolls on it would make the notion much cheaper. Reed also stated he "knows his worth" at this point in his career. 

 

The Jets signed Reed for the veteran's minimum at 380k for the remainder of the season. Obviously a safe investment for that price. While Reed wasn't a great signing, he wasn't a horrible one either. If he could come that cheaply to the Jets again for the veteran's minimum, which for Reed would probably be somewhere around 900-950k, that would also be another safe investment to help bolster a suspect secondary. While the real need in the secondary is CB, some reinforcements wouldn't hurt.

I could see the Jets signing him at some point in training camp. Cutting him on the last day and then bringing him back week 2.  Teams are rough on that whole guaranteed veteran minimum contract thing.

just saying if he knows he won't be on anyone's week 1 roster, or in anyone's camp, he knows this is his last year, and that he may not even get that

 

he may just retire.

 

I don't think it's a coincidence the secondary improved the day he got here, hope he stays in some capacity

I'd bring back Reed in a second, continue to mentor Milliner and begin to mentor Pryor.

I think its either Reed OR Landry...not sure they can warrant taking up two roster spots with the number of rb, wr, cb, and ol's we may have to stash and all.

If he is going to mentor people, wouldn't you want him in camp?  I think he is a guy somebody picks up if they safeties stink going into the season or after an injury.  I didn't like what we got out of him, but he wasn't horrible.  The main problem I had with him is that I think he got too much run.  I'd rather Rex limited his snaps and if they can't do that I don't want any part of him.

Ed Reed needs to give up playing football and adopt coaching football. He needs to be a defensive backs coach. With all the credit he was given with Milliner he may be that good of a football mind.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

He was the best ball hawk on the team last year, he had 3 picks in like what ? 7 games with us? And he can help Pryor with the ins and outs of the S position at the NFL level. He can only help what was a terrible secondary last year, imo.

Is too old to play even as a advisory role and signal caller on the field.  We have other DB's who can do that who are younger.

If he wants to coach, let him become an intern.

Hopefully Reed will get the chance to coach and mentor younger players to be, where he is at! At a Pro Bowl level.

  He is one of the greatest safeties to ever put on a helmet.  I swear nobody develops players like U of Miami does.

Vet min to mentor the defensive back field I'd go for that. I think it's no coincidence the play of Milliner, and whole group improved in the last quater of the season, I really think Reeds influence was a huge part of the light going on.

Since they stopped paying players like it was the NFL and cheating on grades they've sucked.

If he wants to play then move him to strong safety and have him mentor Calvin Pryor. This is no brainer.

Roster spots are very valuable to teams with talent and depth.  You know, the kind of team to which we aspire to be one day?  If having Ed Reed on a roster was a no brainer, he'd be signed somwhere.  The Jets are not the only team with young players in their secondary and they already have a guy that can mentor in Landry.

If Landry was the player we wanted him to be, we wouldn't have drafted Pryor. Reed was mentoring Landry as far back as Baltimore. If he's not the unquestioned starting FS in his 7th year last year, to the point where you have to bring in Ed Reed who matched the production of the whole backfield in just 7 games, then how does it make sense to keep Landry as the SS when you could put Reed there? Looks a lot more appealing to me than having Landry as a SS. That depth argument doesn't really hold weight when Landry isn't a spring chicken himself. You even said it yourself in the depth thread that there is no named SS, so seriously, who's going to do a better job there?

He got 3 interceptions. He also blew more angles and tackles.  Did you watch the games, or are you just looking at the INT stats?  Landry isn't a centerfielder.  Neither is Reed at this point, but at least Landry can tackle and doesn't look like he thinks he's 2 tenths faster than he actuall is.

I'm facepalming because you haven't taken the time to read the 5 sentences I wrote. I never suggested Landry or Reed play center field. I said Pryor at FS, Reed as SS, which works well for both. Yikes
