— Ed Reed (@TwentyER) July 9, 2012

Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed posted this message to his Twitter account. This comes after Reed tweeted earlier “Back home with my son, he’s riding his bike an I’m doing yard work! Tell the bosses I’m comfortable!”

Clearly, Reed is trying to cash in and receive one last big contract before he retires. The Ravens seem unlikely to comply though since they don’t have much cap space and also need to sign Ray Rice to a contract extension. Now we’ll see if Reed is serious on his holdout threat come July 27, when the Ravens are scheduled to open training camp.

Time running out for David Reed as a Raven...

I like David Reed (6-0, 190, now in his 3rd year out of Utah)... He is a gifted receiver and return specialist who has the speed to beat a secondary defense vertically. He can break a kickoff or a punt for a TD.  He has the natural instincts of a very good offensive player. Maybe the only knock on young David Reed in the past was a need to improve his hands in the way he caught...
