Great! Every rookie will be present for camp which is a good thing.

With the new CBA, this should have never been in doubt. Otherwise, something went seriously wrong with either the front office or rookie.

Nice little article on Reid through 5 games. Calms me down a little bit after thinking about Marcus Cooper for awhile.

I saw this thread pop up and my initial thought was, "What? No way we extended a rookie???" Laughing d'oh!
Great article on Reid btw...

Suddenly, all I've ever said about Goldson seems to be confirmed...

Most of the credit I gave Goldson was as a sniper. The guy is probably the best safety in the league at what I call sniping. That is, being deep at the safety spot and shooting at the line of scrimmage on a run play. Most run support safeties succeed by playing in the box. Goldson doesn't need to be IN the box to be a successful run supporter. He can do it from outside, playing deep. THAT was Goldson's biggest strength, and THAT allowed him to be in position more often to make plays on receivers and on the ball, whereas other safeties spend time playing in and outside the box, and therefore sacrifice opportunities to play receivers and ball. That ability makes him a very good safety. But he was never worth 45 millions, and never will be, in my opinion. 5/25 would have been great for him. There's simply no way I can value Goldson equally or more than Willis, Bowman and Justin.

Now, Reid. We don't have to ask for too much from him. Just to diagnose the game (which he might already be better than Goldson at), be patient and disciplined, and make plays when the opportunities come up. We have a very good defense around him. I'm not surprised in the least by his early success.

I am very surprised, but I love it of course. Making me eat crow for my disdain for Reid during the draft process. Its a bit of a downgrade in the run support but Reid has been solid there. In coverage he's already just about as good except Goldson was capable of playing single high, which I don't feel Reid can do particularly well at this juncture, though he will get better obviously. Given the disparity of their salaries I'd much rather have Reid at what he makes than Goldson at what he makes. The drop in production simply isn't that great

i think reid has a higher ceiling and will be better. it took goldson 3-4 years to crack the linup. and if u remember our safties that were beatin him out were horrible!!!!!! more tools in the toolbox for the rookie and hes only gonna get better. and his attidude is way better.

This is why there were quite a few of us who were okay with letting Goldson walk at the money he was asking for, because given who we're going to have to pay, and the likelihood we'd find a suitable replacement, it just didn't make sense to keep him. Granted, I wasn't sure it was going to be Reid, and I wanted Vaccaro, but I'm happy in the end.
