Or how do you explain baseball players, soccer players (outside U.S. ) oder actors getting paid that or even more while having a lot less risky professions?

Re: Jordan Reed on IR

They aren't making money for the risk, they're making money because they're good at what they do and risks come with the territory, it's not like its hazard pay. Kobe Bryant is getting paid $30 million this year and basketball doesn't typically come with the same hazards (concussions, neck/head injuries etc) that football does. Athlete's pay is all about skill and potential.

Unfortunately I think we need to add TE to our needs list.

I just don't trust Reed to play.

Re: Jordan Reed on IR

We do t need another TE. Reed, Paulsen, and Paul are fine.
A solid run game from a RB, WR's able to get open, and a pocket passing QB is all we need to make our TE's thrive.

Reed should be use to catch passes, not option pitches. If he fails us, we can just dink and dunk our way to score.

The point is that Reed might not be available.
