Ravens safety Ed Reed is aware of the stories linking him to the Patriots, and he’s not happy about them.
Reed said his quotes about being able to see himself in a Patriots uniform have been taken out of context by reporters who are looking to create stories during Super Bowl week.
“The bad part about this is that you all ask the question, but don’t write down everything that someone says,” Reed told reporters on Thursday. “People only get a part of what the comment was. I don’t have to say much about that. My heart is in Baltimore. The question is, ‘Would I play for Bill Belicheck?’ Yes. What football player wouldn’t play for Coach Belicheck? Will I be in New England? Most likely not. It’s just terrible that people get half of the story.”
Reed will become a free agent in March, and the Patriots may be among several teams that will offer him a contract. But Reed thinks talk of his landing in New England is just talk.
