I would tend to believe Mort on this. These guys try create value by leaking fake stories - especially if everyone thinks god is interested.
I think it's Jets or retire and I think Rex wants him and Idzik doesn't.
I hope Idzik wins this one.
Why do you say that? Cimini tweeted last night that the Jets were in on Reed, not just Rex kicking the tires, which leads me to believe that the guy who ultimately makes the final decision in signing Reed is kicking the tires here don't you think?
I seriously doubt the Pats sign Reed. He plays the same position as McCourty and, at this point, McCourty is far better than Reed. Also, the Pats seem to want their safeties to be faster and can cover a lot of field (hence why they have several converted CBs as safeties) and that is definitely not Reed.
If I were a betting man, I would bet on Reed being a Jet or sitting out of football for the rest of this year or for the rest of his life.
