I don't know if Troy would want Ed Reed money. He drives a Kia. Troy doesn't seem to be into material things and all about the bling that most NFL players are like. Now his agent is the one we need to worry about.

i really dont think we will hear nothing of it until after this season. at that point i think the steelers will wanna step up in the way they did with casey hampton. the earlier they re-do a deal, the more they are likely to save in the long run.

I agree Tony totally. The earlier the Steelers rework Troy's contract the better deal they will get. Plus they should rework his contract after this season. He is one of those special players you just can't let go. Perfect hybrid S/LB for Coach LeBeau's 3-4 scheme.

BTW who is Troy's agent??

Hopefully Troy keeps on being the humble soldier and re-signs for a fair and respectable deal.

On the other hand I don't want to think about what it's going to take to re-sign Ben, especially if he keeps on playing the way he has.

John Clayton, of ESPN.com, reports Baltimore Ravens SS Ed Reed's contract extension is a seven-year deal worth $40 million, including $15 million in guaranteed money.

Gee lets see do I want to bounce around the league making millions but no championships or do I restructure, still make a damn good paycheck, keep the championship team intact and play for more rings. It'll be interesting to see what happens when Troy and Bens contracts come up.....

Did anyone hear his interview yesterday on Sirius NFL Network?

He called his new contract extention " a blessing in da sky." WTF does that mean???? Typical B-more chuckle head. Sounds like something Mike Tyson would say..."he fought like a warrior and I'd just like to take my hand off to him."

Didn't these guys go to college?...and graduate?
