“Leg is feeling alright. A little sore right now,” Reed told WJZ-FM on Monday. “A little slide kick (by Brady), you know what I’m saying. But it’s a tough spot the quarterback’s in. You know, I understand Brady’s point. Him protecting himself. I know he’s a great player. I respect Brady and his game for all it stands for, and I know he’s not a dirty player. And emotions get going in the game.
“I told him — you know, we talked. We talked actually not too long ago, we talked on the phone. He actually reached out to me, texted me. I tried to text him back, but the message exploded after 12 seconds, so I had to call him … and he’s just apologized and what not. But I told him, ‘You know, it’s good, man.’ ”
