So is safety Ed Reed a serious possibility for the San Francisco 49ers?
Per a league source with intimate knowledge of the safety market, the answer at this point is believed to be no.
Reed recently hired David Dunn, whose client list includes 49ers G.M. Trent Baalke and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. At one point, the relationships seemed to provide a convenient path to get a deal done.
Presently, the thinking is that Dunn hoped that reports and rumors and speculation of San Fran interest in Reed would create a bigger market for the Pro Bowl safety.
So far, it hasn’t worked. Which means that, in the end, Reed could be back in Baltimore.
