Very few people would be surprised if Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed ended up with the New England Patriots next season. Apparently one of the few who would be surprised is Reed himself. Reed will become a free agent this offseason and the Patriots are in need of secondary help, which is why it makes sense that New England could take a run at him. Earlier this week, Reed helped fuel the speculation by praising Bill Belichick and saying he could “definitely” see himself playing for the Patriots coach. On Thursday, Reed ripped members of the media for the way they delivered that news. “The bad part about this is that you all ask the question, but don’t write down everything that someone says,” Reed said according to Pro Football Talk. “People only get a part of what the comment was. I don’t have to say much about that. My heart is in Baltimore. The question is, ‘Would I play for Bill Belichick?’ Yes. What football player wouldn’t play for Coach Belicheck? Will I be in New England? Most likely not. It’s just terrible that people get half of the story.” I understand that the Ravens and Patriots are rivals, but this may be a bit of an overreaction from Reed. It’s common knowledge that he and Belichick have a great level of respect for one another, so it wasn’t exactly earth-shattering news to hear that Reed would be open to playing for him. New England has always been known for signing veteran defensive players like Junior Seau, Rodney Harrison and Ted Washington, so Reed would seemingly fit the Patriots’ mold to perfection. No one is accusing him of being a traitor. The post Ed Reed rips media: I most likely will not end up playing in New England appeared first on Larry Brown Sports.
