Ed Reed dials back Patriots talk

NEW ORLEANS -- Ravens safety Ed Reed clarified the statements that he made on Wednesday about possibly playing for the Patriots and coach Bill Belichick.

“Of course I want to stay in Baltimore,” said Reed, who will be an unrestricted free agent. “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. It’s even more bad when you hear the comments that they make towards you. But it comes with it, man.”
