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

[/quote]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.

Reed may not be done....but he isn't "Ed Reed" anymore.

We need a S. Not delay the search, hopeful gromming, etc. of someone.

and also, we can't afford to rent a vintage porsche for a year with all are dumb contracts.

I agree, I rather we find our own franchise safety, rather than borrow someone else's for a year or two.
