He looks nearly as old as Bob McNair in these pictures, lol.

That said, I read the recap of his press conference and heard several sound bites on the way home from work. I loved everything he had to say, it gave me renewed confidence, and I'm excited to have Ed Reed as a member of a team I root for.

Let's win him another couple of rings.

Love it even more if these turn out to be the financials

My thoughts on breakdown:
3 years, $15M, $5M G ($6M in first season)
2013: $3M + $1M SB = $4M ($2M of base is fully guaranteed)
2014: $3.5M + $1M SB = $4.5M
2015: $4.5M + $1M SB + $1M roster bonus= $6.5M

Using these as sources:

‏@AlbertBreer
Max value of Ed Reed's deal is about $15 million over three years ... And, again, around $6 million in Year 1.

@McClain_on_NFL
Ed Reed is getting a 3 year deal worth $15 mil with $5 guaranteed.

Seems like the general national vibe about this deal is that the Texans are again the lovable losers bringing in an over the hill safety with an injury history with misguided hopes of hanging with their overlords the Patriots and Broncos.

While the story if he had signed with the Ravens would be something like "Reed is now the face of the vaunted Ravens D now the Lewis is gone (and Ellerbe, Kruger, Pollard but who's counting?) as they look to defend their title. Reed's wisdom and experience will be invaluable to their defense as they look to reload and repeat.

Screw ESPN Laughing

Still looks weird seeing his name in something other than purple and black.

After seeing that Huff signed with the Ravens for 3 years, $6MM, how do people feel about the signing of Reed? I think Huff has more left in the tank, but I think Reed at 70-80% of what he once was, is still better than Huff at the peak of his career. Injuries are a concern, though. If Reed hinders our ability to re-sign Watt or Cushing, then my entire perspective changes; however, I don't think it'll interfere much, and I have faith that Rick Smith took that into consideration before signing Reed.
