Here's what one NFL executive told me about free-agent safety Eric Reid: ``He certainly should get at least $5 million because of his experience and how good his skill-set is. You're not going to get that guy in here for [minimum salary]. He's too f*** good. He's still one of the best safeties in the game.'' Falcons coach Dan Quinn opted not to pursue Reid at this time despite season-ending injuries to Keanu Neal (ACL) and Ricardo Allen (Achilles). Quinn insisted lack of interest in Reid has nothing to do with off-the-field concerns, with Reid protesting social injustice alongside former 49ers teammate Colin Kaepernick. The two have filed a collusion grievance against the league. Damontae Kazee will replace Allen at free safety, while Falcons looking at Brian Poole, Jordan Richards, Kemal Ishmael, and Keith Tandy at strong safety. Quinn told 92.9 The Game this morning safety Sharrod Neasmann was re-signed more for his special teams value and tackling then to compete for a role on defense. Falcons, Panthers, Buccaneers all dealing with injuries at safety.
