07:12 AM ET 11.14 | Jets coach Rex Ryan has always been complimentary of Ed Reed, once calling him "the best safety that's ever played." And now he may want to coach him again. Ryan danced around the question whether the Jets had contacted the All-Pro safety, but a source said the Jets have. CBSSports.com reported the Patriots are also interested in signing Reed. "With us, as an organization we're going to look at any player out there that we feel can help us," Ryan said Wednesday. "We added Greg [Salas], we added David [Nelson] to the receiving corps because we thought they could help us. If we think that's the case with Ed Reed or any player, we'll certainly consider it." But this isn't just any player. This is someone who Ryan speaks glowingly about after coaching him with the Ravens from 2002-08.

I hope the Jets have a time machine.

Makes sense.

Otis I am not so sure he couldn't help a contender on 3rd downs, etc.. He was injured up until a few weeks ago and the Texans are a mess.

Rex wants to snatch him up so the Hoodie doesn't get Reed, (this may be the master plan of Belechick)

I would rather have a recuperating Revis than a recuperation Reed at this stage of their respective careers.

Go to the Lions and help them out. They need help in the secondary and are a better contender than the Jets. Also he would play his home games indoors....much better than that northeast cold weather.

Such a tool.

You'd be singing Belicheat's praises and once again swinging from his jelly beans if the Pats had signed him.

QUOTE(#8):

the jets do have secondary issues-but its more about covering WRs - I have no problem calling him- but they don't need a safety, they need corners

I think his experience will be the biggest benefit to that defense since that whole squad is overall pretty young.....and leadership.

Maybe we'll get lucky and he can stay on the field long enough to get us a few impact plays down the stretch.

If he passed a physical, I'd be shocked, to say the least. Makes no sense from any stand point. Great career but he's done.

NFL.com is saying the J-E-T-S have signed Reed. No details on the deal though. Vet minimum would be the only thing about that which would make sense.

Maybe Rex wants him as much or more for what he brings to a locker room. Professional approach, preparation and attitude come game day. For the price they get him at that is not a bad move.
