Ed Reed hires agent, could be headed to 49ers
Receiver Anquan Boldin may not be the only Ravens player who joins the 49ers.
A league source with extensive knowledge of the current safety market believes that the 49ers could land Ravens safety Ed Reed.
As Albert Breer of NFL Network first reported on Twitter (as best we can tell), Reed has indeed hired David Dunn of Athletes First. Now that Reed has an agent, the agent can talk to teams in advance of the start of free agency at 4:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
The fact that Reed is in play for the Niners means that Dashon Goldson isn’t. Goldson is expected to be the hottest free agent on the safety market. Reed may not be the hottest, but he may be the next big name to join one of the hottest teams in the league.
