He is not coming to Carolina and plus we don't have salary cap space. Close thread now. Thank you

yes, but it won't happen. he'll retire a raven and join ray lewis in the HoF.

I wouldn't want him. We aren't a Safety away from winning it all and he's gonna be retired soon. He's been a great player but he's aging and not a good fit.

We're all far too enamored with bringing in guys who have been good elsewhere at the end of their careers (very very very end...in this case).

Ed Reed is still a great player but he's a shell of his former self. I would most certainly welcome him here but he'll go to a Super Bowl contending team

I don't think he leaves Baltimore. I'd rather the Panthers get an Ed Reed-esque type player in the draft at 21 Y/O than get an aging Ed Reed whose had problems staying healthy all 16

those guys are some of the guys we're gonna need while we build thru the draft. older guys on affordable short term deals.

Eh - I agree. But you're not looking at Ed Reeds there. We are going to have to use vet FAs who will come in on short affordable deals while we fix the mess that is a lot of our roster / cap.

But these guys are going to be "he was good with soandso" not "it's Ed fuging Reed man". He's been a superstar in Baltimore and he's really near the end of his career. If he plays somewhere else it'll be both for a team who is a player or two from winning it all that year and probably for more money than we can / should pay.

Maybe I should have said "great" and not "good" in my first post...come to think of it.

    • I have to apologize to @TheRed , not for what I have said, but most certainly how I have said it. He was right that this isn't how I normally post and my passion for the subject matter got the best of me and left me with the just the worst. I should have said, "Please, you have obviously got an informed opinion and a desire to get the best out of this country we share, so don't pass up on your opportunity to cast a ballot. It doesn't have to be for every race, but find someone or something you can get behind and put your votes there." One single vote may not matter in a presidential, or even gubernatorial, election, but don't let that turn you into thinking the voter doesn't matter. Look, act and vote local -- these are the races that have the most impact on your life and where you have the most impact, too. A change at the local level does reverberate up the ladder, it is how all great movements start. I won't get on you or anyone else about not voting again, but please, in exchange, could you just commit to casting a ballot next time your local elections roll along? You are full of smart ideas and are passionate about a number of issues, don't let that go to waste. You might very well actually improve things. And Lord, we sure do need that, don't we? Once again, my apologies to @TheRed and @NanuqoftheNorth for going above and beyond in calling you out. You deserve a better shake than I gave you.
    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4
