Impending free agent Ed Reed is now saying he will "most likely not" be playing for the Patriots in 2013.
Reed tried to scale back his Wednesday statements on Thursday by saying, "Of course I want to stay in Baltimore. I was asked, would I play for Bill Belichick? Yes. What football players wouldn't play for coach Belichick? Will I be in New England? Most likely not. It's just terrible that people get half the story." Reed is performing damage control after his midweek comments bordered on a team distraction. We still like his chances of being a Pat in 2013.
