Default Ed Reed released. Non-news item?

Released just for comments he made?

Last time we picked up one of the Texan's cut players, it worked out pretty well for us. However, I suspect he will not make it through waivers.

Why released? Cause he's sucking? And if so, why would we want a player in suck mode?

I'm guessing it's moreso about Reed being demoted.

He's been hurt and hasn't performed. Still a little weird though.

More likely because he has not contributed to the team and when he finally did make the field he was out of position a couple times.

The comments were likely a breaking point.

Runs like a 340 pound nose tackle now. No thanks. At least Adams can run a stay healthy.

Nice severance package for Ed Reed. Front your way into a 3 yr, $15 million dollar contract as a FA, $6 mill up front and a few weeks after you sign, relay that you have a tear in your hip labrum, need surgery and will be out until week 1.

I only wish the Chiefs would have signed him.

kFc is desperately hoping he clears waivers because they are going to need all the secondary help they can get Sunday night!

When you aren't making the playoffs why let some bad FA move diss the team instead of saying I am sorry i can't perform this year? I love it cut his ass. If he could still play I would say bring him in but it looks like if he can play, it may not be until next yr.

I think this is exactly what happened. Luckily for some teams interested in him, there are teams that are clearly out of any playoff chance and would not bite on him. I don't think he will clear waivers as money might not be an issue.

I wonder if Ed is over at Bowe's house trying to buy a bag of weed since he doesn't have to play Sunday?

We have to cut someone if we nab him.

Yeah... not sure that's happening.
