Rumor: Ed Reed may end up in San Francisco

Mar 11, 2013 at 7:55 PM--




The San Francisco 49ers have already acquired one Baltimore Raven, trading a sixth-round pick for Anquan Boldin. They may be trying to acquire a second member of the team that beat them in the Super Bowl back in February.

Pro Football Talk has said that a league source with extensive knowledge of the current market for safeties believes that the 49ers could work out a deal with safety Ed Reed.

Reed has hired Athletes First to represent him in negotiations. Reed's new agent, David Dunn, also represents 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh and general manager Trent Baalke.

Before Reed had an agent, he was unable to work with any teams prior to the start of free agency on Tuesday at 1 PM. However, he can now begin negotiations prior to the start of free agency.

While the 49ers are believed to be one of the teams in the mix for safety Dashon Goldson, it is becoming more and more unlikely that he will return to the team. The Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are assumed to be ahead of San Francisco in the race for his services. The $6 million owed to Boldin may have priced Goldson out of San Francisco. This may open the door for Reed to come to the 49ers.

The 34 year old Reed was drafted in the first round of the 2002 NFL Draft. He has been selected to nine Pro Bowls, was the 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award winner, and holds the all-time NFL record for interception return yards, currently at 1,506.

Listed at 5-11 and 205 lbs, Reed had 58 tackles, 4 interceptions and a touchdown last season.

Schefter: 49ers, NFL teams may only be allowed 75 to 80 players at training camp

By David Bonilla

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that NFL teams may be required to limit the number of players who participate in training camps across the league when they begin later this month. At least, they are scheduled to start later this month. That would mean as many as 10 to 15 players from each team's 90-player roster might have to sit out meetings and on-field work. The idea is, of course, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as the NFL continues to search for ways to increase the safety of its players and the chances of an uninterrupted season. "One source said he believed it's likely that teams will go to camp with 80-man rosters," writes Schefter,
