After the AFC Championship Game between the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots ended, we got the impression that a lot of the guys in purple and black despise Tom Brady and company. Despite the fact that Brady may have tried to cleat him during the game, Ed Reed does not sound like he is one of the Ravens players who dislike the Patriots. With Reed set to become a free agent after the Super Bowl and New England in need of secondary help, there have already been rumblings about Bill Belichick making a run at Reed this offseason. On Tuesday, Reed said he would welcome it. “Yeah, oh yeah, man, I could definitely play for coach Belichick,” Reed told reporters, via the Boston Herald. “He is a great coach. I’m sure he can help me to expand my football knowledge even more as a player and as a coach, so if I’m ever able to be around him, just like I was at the Pro Bowl, it’s huge.” Belichick has always gone out of his way to praise Reed’s intelligence and playmaking ability, and the two seemed to hit it off in Honolulu a couple of years ago. Clearly the admiration is mutual. In fact, Reed said he has even gotten fashion ideas from the three-time AP Coach of the Year. “It’s the reason why I wear my sweater cut off a little bit,” Reed said. “He’s the first guy I saw like, ‘That’s cool.’ You know, that’s cool. He cuts those sweater sleeves, and he’ll be comfortable. So there’s a reason why. Most people will tell you around the facility that’s how I look. It’s just a blessing to even have met, to know coach Belichick.” Reed has made it clear that he wants to play next season, and I don’t think anyone would be the least bit surprised if he ends up doing so in Foxboro. Belichick loves signing veteran defensive players, and Reed is clearly one of his favorites. The post Could Patriots target Ed Reed?
