According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Baltimore Ravens aren’t very confident that they’ll be able to re-sign free agent safety Ed Reed.
#Ravens are very pessimistic about the possibility of keeping FA Ed Reed, I'm told. Belief is he wants $4M per year. Doubtful they do that.

I just don’t see how the Ravens can afford Reed. They’re currenly $9 million over the salary cap, but will need some of that money to sign their rookies in the upcoming draft.
I believe the Texans remain the front-runners to land Reed.
