Ravens Sign 5th Round Draft Pick David Reed

The Baltimore Ravens continue their torrid pace of signing their draft picks as well as free agents. This afternoon, the team announced it had reached agreement on a 3-year deal with wide receiver David Reed, who was the team's second of two consecutive draft picks in the 5th round. Along with the recently signed Arthur Jones, Reed's signing was just a matter of time, as the players are slotted in salary steps and the two of them signed almost one right after the other due to their draft position.

This made it easier for the team, although I recall asking Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome was there any specific reason why they took Reed with the 156th overall pick and then Jones with the 157th pick. "Nope, the only difference is that one will make more money than the other" was pretty much all Newsome said when he responded. The guy drafted 156th makes a bit more than the guy drafted 157th. I wonder if Reed teases Jones about that. However, the difference in size between the two might make David think twice about rubbing it in!
