    Former Houston Texans safety Ed Reed learned a $50,000 lesson about financial safety.
    Do not leave $50,000 in your car.
    As simplistic as that sounds, Reed is currently without that amount of money after leaving it in the front seat of his car in Houston, according to Click2Houston.com. The thief smashed the window in Reed's car and stole the money.
    Here is a portion of that story:


    “Sources say the bag contained $50,000. Reed had gotten the money from a bank down the street and then stopped off at the Bank of America in the 12000 block of Westheimer near the Westpark Tollway.


    “Police believe Reed was followed.â€
    The only positive aspect of this story is Reed was not harmed during the theft. If Reed was followed, this story could have ended differently if the thief tried to take the money with force.

    Best comment on Pro Football Talk about this was someone saying it's less than Reed stole from the Texans last year.

    Ed and his PR team will need to come up with a good story about why he needed so much cash.

    Texans SUCK. Best thing that happened to them was someone finally speaking out and tanking so hard they finally got rid of the coach. :jj:

    This story has more holes in it than Robin's munchies drawer.

    Reed has been out of the NFL for a couple of months. Is he bankrupt yet?

    people miss the most important part of the story: if it is at all considered credible, he now has a 50k tax deduction for 2014. the requirement is that you file and the police have on file your report of loss. he now has newspaper coverage on file in every library.

    Only drug dealers, mobsters, and dumbasses put $50k in the front seat of their car.

    Like the old man who won 200 million on powerball from West Virginia, he had 250,000 cash stolen at a strip joint. I mean, who wouldn't knock a window out for that?

    To get $50k out of a bank he probably already had to fill out paperwork saying why he needed that much cash.
