Ed Reed didn’t stay on the open market for very long. Two days after he was released by the Houston Texans, the New York Jets announced they will sign the 35-year-old safety.
SB Nation’s Jets blog, Gang Green Nation, wonders whether Reed will be able to contribute and if he’s worth the roster spot:
This doesn’t feel like a case where a change of scenery is needed. This doesn’t feel like the case of a guy not being what he used to be but still effective. It feels like a case where one of the key ingredients that made Reed a player is gone. Rex Ryan might be a brilliant defensive mind, but when 35-year-olds lose their athletic ability, it does not come back. Perhaps the Jets could hide Reed by giving him easier assignments, but they could just as easily do that with the players they have now.
The 33 touchdown throws already ties the third-best mark for an entire season in Manning’s career, something he has done three times before. He Discount Code For Cheap Jerseys threw 49 touchdown passes in 2004, his career-best mark, and 37 touchdowns last Dallas Cowboys Cheap Jerseys season with the Broncos, his first with Denver. The addition of Wes Welker this year, a player who caught eight of those 2007 touchdowns from Brady, has really seemed to elevate Manning to even greater heights in his career.
Welker has nine touchdowns this year, already tying his own career-high. Manning has thrown three touchdowns to Demaryius Thomas on Sunday, giving Thomas nine touchdowns this season, and his fourth has gone to tight end Julius Thomas.
Thomas also now has nine touchdowns on the year.
Manning has been spreading the ball around quite a bit this year, and nearly everyone is having a career-year in Denver. But will it end up as the best season in the career of any quarterback?
