Rest of the team
Posted 12 Nov 2013Now that the Houston Texans are cutting ties with Ed Reed, the veteran safety will take just over $400,000 in remaining salary to the waiver wire.
He will end up collecting $6 million in guarantees for his seven games in Houston.
In the competitive disadvantage stage of his career, Reed is no sure bet to be claimed this week. In fact, it's quite possible that he's played his last NFL game.
If Reed does manage to latch on with a playoff contender, though, here is a list of potential landing spots:
1. New England Patriots: Reed and Patriots coach Bill Belichik have long formed a mutual admiration society, and the Patriots could use the depth with Steve Gregory injured.
2. New York Jets: Rex Ryan has a soft spot for his former Ravens stars, as evidenced by his reluctance to part with a declining Bart Scott. The Jets like starter Antonio Allen, but he's been a liability in coverage at times.
3. Indianapolis Colts: Reed has referred to Colts coach Chuck Pagano, who recruited him to the University of Miami, as a father figure. With LaRon Landry and Antoine Bethea locked in as starters, there's no obvious role for Reed in Indy's secondary.
4. New Orleans Saints: Rookie Kenny Vaccaro is dealing with a concussion, so there's no long-term need at safety. Reed does have roots in Louisiana, however, and the team showed cursory interest in the offseason.
5. Dallas Cowboys: Jeff Heath has been an abject disaster as a fill-in for injured rookie J.J. Wilcox the past two weeks. Reed would be a temporary Band-Aid, but how would he take his second demotion of the season once Wilcox is healthy again?
6. Baltimore Ravens: John Harbaugh and Ozzie Newsome have moved on, drafting Matt Elam as Reed's replacement. Pro Football Talk confirms the Ravens will not claim Reed on waivers.
Posted 12 Nov 2013The countdown clock has begun for the end of the marriage between Santonio Holmes and the New York Jets.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported Tuesday that people close to the wide receiver say that he's "accepted the idea" he'll likely be released at the conclusion of the season.
Holmes hardly is alone in reading the writing on the wall. Given his production, injury woes and famously prickly personality, there's no way the Jets will carry Holmes' $10.75 million cap charge in 2014. Truth be told, New York would've cut ties with Holmes long ago if there had been an easy financial out.
But in the present, Holmes remains a key part of this surprise Jets team. Rex Ryan told reporters Monday he expects the receiver to play Sunday against the Buffalo Bills after missing the past five games with a lingering hamstring injury.
Holmes has never produced numbers that match his pay grade, but he's a huge part of what the Jets do on offense. The team deliberately got away from the passing game once Holmes exited the lineup, digging up and hosing down "Ground and Pound." (Geno Smith's production in a Week 9 win over the New Orleans Saints positively was 2009 Sanchezian.)
With Holmes (and tight end Kellen Winslow) back in the lineup, the Jets should be able to get some balance back in their attack. Holmes won't be essential personnel in March, but he is right now.
