Bills will not retain the services of assistant DBs coach Ed Reed.
It is not a surprising move, but Reed is a big enough name for it to be noteworthy. Reed was shown the door along with 13 other assistants including Kathryn Smith, who was the NFL's first full-time female coach. A longtime close pal of Rex Ryan, Reed's exit should have been expected after Ryan's December firing. Jan 31 - 1:09 PM

Bills hired Ed Reed as assistant defensive backs coach.

Known to be exceptionally smart, Reed played on Rex Ryan's Ravens defenses and was always beloved by teammates. Although players Reed coaches simply won't be capable of the extraordinary feats he accomplished on the field, Reed should be able to relate to his pupils as a 37-year-old who retired only eight months ago. It's an intriguing hire for a young, talented Buffalo secondary.

Former longtime Ravens FS Ed Reed will announce his retirement on Thursday.

Reed spent 2014 on Showtime's Inside the NFL, and it was known his playing days were through. He'll make it official on Thursday, retiring as a Raven. A first-round pick in the 2002 draft, Reed went to an absurd nine Pro Bowls and was a five-time first-team All Pro. He led the NFL in interceptions three times, amassing 64 for his career with seven pick-sixes. Perhaps the greatest "center-field safety" of all time, Reed won the 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year award and is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame's All-Decade team for the 2000s. He should be a first-ballot Hall of Famer, although so too should have been Orlando Pace, who was ridiculously edged out by Jerome Bettis this past year.

Free agent S Ed Reed has joined the cast of Showtime's Inside The NFL.

The press release referred to Reed as a "former" NFL safety, though Reed has never formally announced his retirement. He's likely still open to playing, but the calls simply haven't come. Reed is a future Hall-of-Famer, but appeared to have nothing left for the Texans and Jets last season. Always a unique player, Reed should be an interesting voice on Inside The NFL.

ESPN New York reports the Jets have no interest in signing free agent Ed Reed.

Reed told reporters earlier this month he hopes to continue playing, but hasn't received any free-agent interest. His best chance at getting signed could come after Week 1, when base salaries aren't guaranteed. Calvin Pryor, Antonio Allen, and Dawan Landry are entrenched as the Jets' top three safeties. Beat writer Rich Cimini thinks Reed would only be an option if the Jets suffer injuries.

Free agent Ed Reed, 35, told reporters at Ravens CB Lardarius Webb's annual softball event Sunday that he hopes to continue playing football.

It's our first Reed update since mid-February, an indication of how nonexistent NFL interest in him has been. Reed says he's "taking my time," but "still preparing to play," although he doesn't want to participate in training camp. It's possible a safety-needy team would give Reed a look after Week 1, when base salaries are no longer guaranteed. The bottom fell out on Reed's career in 2012. The Texans signed him last offseason to a three-year, $15 million contract on owner Bob McNair's mandate, but released Reed in November. He latched on with the Jets but was ineffective in seven appearances with New York.

ESPN New York doesn't believe free agent S Ed Reed figures into the Jets' immediate plans.

The Jets have four safeties under contract, including starters Antonio Allen and Dawan Landry. Beat writer Rich Cimini thinks Reed would simply be a fallback option should the Jets suffer any in-season injuries. Reed has lost many steps and was a weekly burn victim in coverage last season. He's our No. 29 free-agent safety.

Impending free agent Ed Reed said he wants to play one more season.

Reed added that he'd especially like to play for the Jets, which is no surprise considering old pal Rex Ryan might be the only one willing to give him a job. Reed, who has lost a step or four, was dumped by the Ravens and Texans in the last year before latching on with the Jets and settling in as a sub package player behind Antonio Allen. The future Hall of Famer will turn 36 years old in September.
Mon, Dec 30, 2013 01:32:00 PM

Ed Reed only played in sub packages during Sunday's Week 16 win over the Browns.

Finally, coach Rex Ryan didn't let his infatuation with Reed overtake what's best for his team. Antonio Allen started and Reed exclusively played on passing downs, leading to 30-of-65 snaps. It's too little too late as the washed up future Hall of Famer had played on 85 percent of the snaps in the previous five games, but at least Rex had the guts to make the switch.
Mon, Dec 23, 2013 08:22:00 AM

Ed Reed says he'd like to play two more years beyond 2013.

As ESPN's Jamison Hensley points out, that's amusing, as Reed was constantly "contemplating retirement" when he was in his prime. Reed's play has sunk to depressing depths this season, so there's no guarantee he'll find a taker for 2014. The way he handled his hip injury and time in Houston won't help.
Thu, Dec 5, 2013 03:36:00 PM

Coach Rex Ryan said Ed Reed will continue to start for the Jets.

Reed has played virtually every snap at free safety for the Jets since signing three weeks ago. During that span, E.J. Manuel, Joe Flacco and Ryan Tannehill have combined to go 65-of-97 (67.0 percent) for 849 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions. The Jets have lost all three games. "I think Ed gives us the best shot," the ever-loyal Ryan said.
Tue, Dec 3, 2013 09:41:00 AM

Coach Rex Ryan insisted that the 66-yard touchdown bomb from Joe Flacco to Jacoby Jones Sunday was not Ed Reed's fault.

The Jets are getting absolutely torched over the top on a weekly basis, and bringing in a 35-year-old Reed that can no longer run predictably isn't helping -- no matter what Rex says. Since Reed signed two weeks ago, E.J. Manuel and Joe Flacco have combined to go 37-of-54 (68.5 percent) for 518 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. Mike Wallace is going to be open all day long in Week 13.

Making his Jets debut Sunday, Ed Reed played on 61-of-69 defensive snaps.

The Jets secondary was shredded by E.J. Manuel, who went 20-of-28 for 245 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. It wasn't all Reed's fault of course, but his presence certainly didn't help the secondary. The Ravens and Texans gave up on the future Hall of Famer because he can't run anymore and Sunday's debut won't do anything to squash that notion. Former starter Antonio Allen played just four snaps.
Mon, Nov 18, 2013 09:20:00 AM

The Jets announced ahead of Sunday's game at Buffalo that Ed Reed will start at free safety.

They've already demoted Antonio Allen and kicked Dawan Landry over to his more natural strong safety position. Facing a Bills offense quarterbacked by E.J. Manuel and without both of its starting wide receivers, Reed isn't a bad bet for an interception in Week 11.
Sun, Nov 17, 2013 11:41:00 AM

New Jets S Ed Reed will be active for Sunday's game against the Bills, but will come off the bench.

It's quite possible Reed will remain No. 3 on the depth chart going forward, but he could push Antonio Allen if he improves on his poor play from Houston. That might not be possible for a player in steep decline, however. Reed's main contributions to the Jets are likely to be his leadership and intangibles. He's a shell of his former self on the field.
