10:58 PM ET 03.15 | One of the biggest free agent names on the market is Ed Reed, the safety who has made his name as a hitman for the Baltimore Ravens, but now finds himself looking for a new home. Reed visited the Houston Texans on Friday but left without a contract, meaning the safety is still without a team. However he may still have a contract offer, and Reed is apparently giving the Ravens a chance to match that offer, as Baltimore is now reportedly "getting involved in talks" with Reed about a possible return. The main reason for Reed's exit in Baltimore is money -- something the Ravens don't have a lot of. After signing Joe Flacco to a monster deal, it was well-known that the Ravens were choosing their quarterback over other players with expiring contracts, one of whom was Ed Reed. But now that Reed has tested free agent waters and has gathered a good idea of what he can get from another team, he's returning to Baltimore to see if they'd be willing to match whatever contract the Texans may or may not have offered him.

If he's going to play, he should stay with the Ravens!

Doesn't much matter if they re-sign him or not. The Ravens pretty much guaranteed being mediocre after losing half their team to free agency. Giving Flacco the big bucks is going to stop their run to the top for a long time.

The Ravens will be a one man team next year, Flacco et al. Won't be pretty.

All the defensive moves were either smart or planned. No need to worry about the Ravens - they will do just fine as they have most every year in the good hands of Ozzie.

Put down the purple cool ade and step back for a minute.


On offense they might be OK but the defense will be even worse than last year's. Having a high ranked O and a low ranked D sounds just like NE's formula of the last 5 years or so and while successful it has led to zero SB wins. BUT NE plays in a much weaker division than the Ravens, so just winning the division will be a real struggle! Now we'll just have to see if Concur takes the final steps to take over the division this year!!!
