Baltimore Ravens S Ed Reed caused a bit of stir this week, with comments that he'd be open to playing for the New England Patriots (and HC Bill Belichick). Some believe that the Pats may have difficulty affording Reed along with some of their other internal FAs, but there's always some shuffling that can be done to accommodate desired targets underneath the salary cap. Nevertheless, there is some reason to pump the brakes on all the Reed-to-New England speculation.
