Josh Reed signs with Chargers

So, the first ever PFT summit ended a little while ago.

With MDS and Silva heading to the airport, and Florio heading to appear on SNY’s Loudmouths, tonight, it looks like you’re stuck with me for most of the rest of the day.  Let’s start catching up.

The Chargers continued to plan for possible future holdouts on Friday when they signed Josh Reed to a one-year contract.  It’s pretty remarkable that Reed got a job before his ex-Bills teammate Terrell Owens, but he certainly doesn’t cost as much.

The Chargers signed Tra Thomas earlier this week to fill the place of holdout tackle Marcus McNeill.  Now Reed will take Vincent Jackson’s spot on the roster, even if there’s no chance he can replace his production.

  1. If Jackson continues to hold out Reed can serve as a good second receiver while the primary role is taken over by Floyd.

  2. AJ at work again!! what is he thinking!!! so our #1 WR may be out this year and so he replaces him with someone who is 5’9-5’10 and hasnt been in the league for 6 years and hasnt done sh*t!! If all AJ wants to do is fill a spot on the roster with someone who will take a small amount of money, well then sign me up!!! i will take a lot less then Reed, haha. As much as i didnt like the TO idea, it would have been a lot better then picking up someone who does no good for us… this guy is short, so i assume he will play slot, but we already have buster davis and legadu naanee…. so where does this guy fit in???? Ridiculous AJ!!!!

  3. Summit up for us Gregg. What is carved into the tablets come down from the mountain?

  4. Gee, and Mike said unless they sign TO, they weren’t serious. Don’t forget they also have Floyd and Naanee, who filled in nicely in the Redskins game when VJ and Rivers were taken out of the meaningless game, which they won.

  5. As much as I like VJ as a recvr, this whole trend of breaking contracts because they had a good year is getting rediculous. Solution: Everyone signs with a team for a agreed amount of years, contracts get redone yearly based on performance. Logisticly insane, but the level of play would go through the roof.

  6. Good luck Reed, can’t believe they didn’t resign you in Buffalo after giving it up for so many years. Solid WR. I think he’ll have a career year in SD, not saying much, but he’ll have a QB or and OL whichever your perspective blames.

  7. I’m surprised Reed had to wait this long. He didn’t have a great year last year, but no one on the Bills did. He isn’t flashy but has steady hands…I could always count on Josh Reed to convert a third down. I always thought of him as a Ricky Phroel….Bills fans hated on him because he was a 2nd round pick…but he has always been a dependable target, especially on third down when you need to move the chains.

  8. @ebr362,
    To you and all the peeps who keep making this mistake:
    VJ is not breaking any contract. His original contract has expired.

  9. ^Bryd “[…] He isn’t flashy but has steady hands”
    he fumbled twice in his last game against NE

  10. About Josh Reed.
    To the guy who said he can be a solid # 2. not for 1 second.
    To the guy who said not flashy but solid hands.
    you cant be flashy when you dont get in the endzone. The biggest knock on him as a bills reciever is the amount of dropped balls he had. He has gotten better about in the last 1 or 2 years but he has been targeted less also, and I do recall some fumbles.

  11. VJ is insane if he thinks he’s worth more than his current contract. The guy isn’t even playing every game this season because of his likely 4-game suspension.

  12. VJ should sign, and should sign immediately, for the good of both himself and his teammates. He won’t get a new contract; he’ll just lose an accumulated year, give up 3M and have a hard time getting a deal anywhere. McNeill can hold out for a contract.
