Ed Reed's interview on 105.7 The Fan last night rambled on for more than 20 entertaining minutes, so there were a few interesting comments that couldn't be squeezed into my story published in Thursday's newspaper . Reed on fans who criticized him on Twitter: "The fact of the matter is that people don't understand that football players are regular people just like them. And half of them don't understand the business. And most of them just want you to entertain them. There's a lot of good fans out there, but there's also a lot of bad -- I don't want to say bad people, but a lot of people who just want to try to get on your nerves and stuff like that, man. I'm not the kind of person to hold my tongue.

When it was introduced a few years ago, the NFL Rookie Symposium was as anonymous a sports event as any. But anything that moves and says "NFL" seems to generate some sort of attention. ... The NFL, through its broadcast partners and its own NFL Network, has done an impressive job of turning static events into viable TV programming. The NFL draft is certainly the best example, but we've also seen coverage of the scouting combine in Indianapolis and even the owners' annual meetings in March.

The NFL revised its personal conduct policy earlier this month to dictate tougher penalties, less tolerance and a swifter response to aberrant behavior. But when it comes to player procurement, the NFL has another policy. It's called the second chance. A number of college players with rap sheets were beneficiaries of that unofficial policy over the weekend, along with one celebrated wide receiver who has achieved everything in pro football except winning a Super Bowl. Randy Moss, who bumped into a traffic cop with his car in Minneapolis, admitted smoking marijuana and confessed that he takes plays off in a game, turned a new page in his nine-year NFL career yesterday when the Oakland Raiders traded him to the New England Patriots for a fourth-round draft pick.
