Pass.   Bucs are a young team, if they pick up anyone, I would think it would be to grow with the team,  not a one year rental.

Ed Reed, if he becomes a free agent, will sign with the Patriots.... guaranteed!!

Ed Reed could “definitely” see himself as a Patriot

Posted by Evan Silva on January 30, 2013, 1:55 PM EST

Ravens safety Ed Reed is an impending free agent, and it’s become popular to dot-connect Reed to New England as a match with longtime admirer Bill Belichick.

The speculation was fueled when Peter King of SI.com predicted on last Sunday’s Pro Bowl pregame show that Reed will indeed sign with the Patriots. King likened the hypothetical signing to Rodney Harrison’s with the Pats, back in 2003.

Reed was specifically asked by reporters Wednesday whether he could envision himself playing in Foxboro.

“Yeah, oh yeah man,” said Reed, per the Boston Herald. “I could definitely play for coach Belichick. He is a great coach. I’m sure he can help me to expand my football knowledge even more as a player and as a coach, so if I’m ever able to be around him, just like I was at the Pro Bowl, it’s huge.

“It’s the reason why I wear my sweater cut off a little bit. He’s the first guy I saw like, ‘That’s cool.’ You know, that’s cool. He cuts those sweater sleeves, and he’ll be comfortable.”

Sunday’s Super Bowl game against the 49ers is tentatively expected to be Reed’s last in a Ravens uniform.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

Well I do find it likely that some of the defensive stars of the Ravens will be gone next year. I do think Ed Reed may be the old, I mean odd, man out. Flacco is going to want big money and they already are looking to have to dish out money to other key defensive FA so I do see them not resigning Reed.

I wouldn't be against it, I certainly not screaming for it though.

Putting aside the very real possibility that he will retire, and that he will want to go to a perennial contender if he doesn't..

My answer would still lean toward, "no". Byrd has to be the target. Back up the brinks truck.

Though, both Byrd and Reed would be beneficial to the growth of Barron. Barron will probably have less missed tackes as he continues to adjust, but he really needs good coaching and good mentoring by a vet safety to develop some sort of pass coverage ability. For this reason, I think I lean toward picking up a FS in FA rather than drafting another rookie safety.
