From an incident in 2017???
So...nearly 2 1/2 years ago he did .....something.. man these things take so long in modern legalistic society. There has to be a better balance..
So..what does this mean for his extension? For his asking price?
What does it mean for Seattle? Pass rushing interior linemen are NOT a dime a dozen and this could hurt a lot. Need Ansah even more now, as he can move inside on the passing downs..but wow. Ouch.

Damn, man. Thats disappointing as all hell. I think the Hawks are now in the market for a permanent replacement. Signing this guy to a new contract may no longer be in the cards.

This sucks but we'll be ok.
So I guess we sign Rubin?
We aren’t going to get a pass rushing DT off the street...

Rubin seems like the sure move. We've got some young guys who are gonna have to step up. A year ago losing Reed for six games would have felt a lot less meaningful. Hopefully we've got somebody on the roster who can fill in adequately until he comes back. If it's one thing I trust Pete to do it's minimize a loss on defense, at least to a certain degree.

The prosecutor didn't even charge him. Roger taking it upon hisself to be judge, jury and executioner just pisses me off. This seems arbitrary.
@BillA I think arbitrary is the biggest thing. They’ve got to get a better system in place.

Man, big hit going into a season where DL is already a question mark.
The only thing that bothers me out of this entire situation is the fact that Reed gets six games while Tyreek Hill gets nothing. If you want to "protect the shield" and take into account the overall effect and publicity of these situations, Tyreek's was certainly a bigger story and did more damage. Seattle sports radio hosts couldn't even remember when or where the Reed situation originated from.... When the locals who are paid to follow these things don't even remember, I'm not sure what type of "protection" this is.
Basically it comes down to this: Reeds accussor was ready to talk to the NFL, Hill's wasnt. And so, it just points out more flaws in the system. They really need to find a coherent system for this, and it needs to be third party and intelligent.
There should be a limit on how much later suspensions should happen as well.. it feels even more arbitrary that 2 years later this comes down..

@Veda-the-Moor completely agreed. Third party, transparent, with a report that's released to the public explaining, with some sensitivity to the player/victim, what was learned and the reasoning behind the verdict.
Right now it just feels random and arbitrary.
