Ed Reed Believes He Has Two More Years In Him

Ed Reed doesn’t think his tank is empty just yet. He said this afternoon he still expects to play for two more seasons after this season. Reed spent most of his career with the Baltimore Ravens before becoming a member of the Houston Texans this season. He was released by the Texans then came to the New York Jets to play for his former coach, Rex Ryan. This is what Reed had to say about the criticism of him:

I have created a standard for myself. That standard hasn’t been created by no fan (or) person in the media. I think I’m still effective. I watch tape too. I’m not only watching myself. I watch safeties across the league. I don’t think that I have played much different this year than I have in the past if you go back and look at tape.

The Jets signed Reed prior to the week 11 match up against the Buffalo Bills and hasn’t made much of an impact on the field. The Jets have not won a game since he has joined them, losing to the Bills, Ravens, and Miami Dolphins.

I like Reed, I like that he joined the Jets. I don’t think he has played with the team long enough to show what he can do, but I don’t believe he has enough in the tank for two more years. We will see though.

    I think Reed was signed to benefit our young safeties for the most part. Landry being a veteran was supposed to help, but he was never a top notch safety to begin with. Reed’s leadership along with his game experience, made it a good signing. He’s obviously not the player he once was and I don’t think the Jets should even fathom signing him for another season, never mind two. The Jets need to draft a true free safety in next season’s draft, it needs to be a priority. A veteran free safety to tutor might be necessary, but I don’t think Reed is worth the gamble going into the next season.
