Ed Reed: 'Tell the bosses I'm comfortable!'

It's been too long since we overanalyzed and misinterpreted Ed Reed's purposefully vague statements about retirement.

Thankfully, Reed gave us some new material to work with over the weekend.

"Back home with my son, he's riding his bike an I'm doing yard work! Tell the bosses I'm comfortable!" Reed posted on Twitter along with the accompanying picture of domestic bliss.

His "bosses" in this case would seem to be the Baltimore Ravens' front office. That's the same group of men with whom Reed is apparently trying to negotiate a new contract. The all-time great seems almost certain to play this year and the Ravens are counting on it.

Or could that statement be interpreted to say, "Tell that greedy asshole Bisciotti that I'm comfortable enough at home to just stay here if he doesn't cough up the cash money!"?

Just sayin'.

Decided to turn this one into a poll. I think Reed is full of shit as usual, won't get more money, and will still play one more season. The Ravens will fail to make the playoffs and Reed will become disgusted enough to finally retire along with Ray Lewis. The rebuilding will then begin.

Looks like you'll just have to throw your vote away. Just pretend it's an American presidential election.

No. Our votes actually matter in this poll

Update: Ed Reed showed up for camp yesterday, ending any speculation of a holdout. I know you're all very pleased.

I was keeping my fingers crossed he wouldn't hold out.

I am. Ed Reed is old, slow and it's over.
