NFL Rumors: Saints To Pursue Ed Reed In Free Agency?

USATSI_7552472_154224518_lowresComing into Super Bowl XLVII, a few of the big-name players on the Baltimore Ravens were facing uncertainty with the off-season only one game away.

The biggest priority and concern for the Ravens franchise heading into the off-season is locking up quarterback Joe Flacco before he becomes a free agent and free to sign with another team in March. Flacco indicated no intention on agreeing to a new deal with the Ravens until the season was over and now has said that he hopes to be a Raven for life.

With Flacco on the verge of signing a lucrative long-term deal with Baltimore potentially making him the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL, the team’s attention will turn to veteran safety Ed Reed.

Although the New England Patriots appear to be the favorite to land Reed in free agency if the Ravens neglect to re-sign him during the off-season, the New Orleans Saints might also be an intriguing option for the veteran according to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com:

Actually former New Orleans quarterback and current WWL Radio host Bobby Hebert started it when I joined his show last week. Hebert asked for my thoughts on the Saints pursuing Baltimore safety Ed Reed, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent.

Even though we still don’t know who New Orleans’ defensive coordinator will be or exactly what the defensive scheme will be, there are a lot of reasons why adding Reed would make sense.

One of the reasons for Reed possibly considering New Orleans is a return home. Louisiana is Reed’s old stomping ground and may be the ideal place for the future Hall of Famer to call it a career.

Despite coming off a disappointing season following the aftermath of the bounty scandal, the Saints may be a top tier team once again next season with head coach Sean Payton returning to the sidelines and the defense potentially getting a considerable boost with Reed in the secondary.

The Ravens will more than likely attempt to re-sign Reed, but if Baltimore can’t get a deal done New Orleans may become an option for the veteran safety.
