Ed Reed spent most of his career stealing valuable things from quarterbacks. He was reportedly the recent victim of a much bigger theft, apparently having $50,000 in cash stolen from his car. reports, via the Houston Police Department, that someone smashed the window of Reed's car and took a bag containing $50,000 in cash out of the front seat.

A few questions.

Why did Reed have $50,000 in cash? Why did he leave that money on the front seat of his car in a bag? What was Reed doing in Houston? Why did Reed have $50,000 in cash? Did the bag have a big dollar sign on it?

Please say the bag had a big dollar sign on it.

Anyway, Reed was apparently targeted by the robbers. He went to a "bank down the street" and got the money, then "stopped off at the Bank of America in the 12000 block of Westheimer near the Westpark Tollway."

So it sounds like Reed went to a bank, got a lot of money, drove to another bank, left the money in the car and got robbed? That doesn't even sound real, man.

But it's apparently a very real situation for Reed, who hopefully has insurance or some other way to get the money back.

Reed, who signed with Houston last offseason, was released in November and eventually latched onto the Jets. He's said that he'd like to play one more season before riding off into the sunset.
