It’s a been a rough week for Ed Reed and it could be argued that it’s been a rough year. Since winning his first ever Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens in 2013, Reed has been on two different rosters and has been both robbed in real life and burned badly on the field.
The Houston Texans didn’t give the future Hall of Famer long before they cut him loose and Rex Ryan could do little to revive Reed’s career in New York. Rich Cimini from ESPNNewYork suggests that Reed’s time in New York may have come to an end.
Reed, 35, is an unrestricted free agent, but he doesn’t figure in the immediate plans. He could be a fallback option if there’s an injury down the line.
This isn’t surprising news, given how poorly Reed played with the Jets in 2013. But the real question is, was Reed’s final game with the Jets the last we will see of him in the NFL? There isn’t a market for aged safeties who get routinely burned, and we may have seen the end of Ed Reed’s career this past season.
