I don't think we should go back to picking up older free agents that's at the end of their careers. We tried that countless times with now success. I believe we need to continue building the team through the draft but also add free agents that make sense. Reed is a a great player and has had a amazing career...BUT there will be other great players and with good scouting and drafting then we can get the player we need without setting us back. Remember we had Ryan Clark at one time and let him go.
Bad idea. For one, Ed Reed is going to want more than we can afford to pay him, and secondly, we need to stay the course and build through the draft and only sign young FA's before they peak. We need to find and develop our own Ed Reed, or get a guy in free agency that's on the cusp of being great. Otherwise, we'll just end up overspending for a few years of declining service with likely nothing to show for it.
