The star safety's tweet was picked up by several outlets, including us. On Monday night, Reed took to Twitter again, this time to lament why some of his tweets garner news coverage while others don't get any at all.
We tweet about our camps with kids throughout offseason why That never makes espn, http://nfl.com etc... This probably won't get a RT- Ed Reed (@TwentyER) July 9, 2012

Players that have2be smart business men,in a business that don't care an inch about them though we grind for that inch-notalwaysrightbutreal- Ed Reed (@TwentyER) July 9, 2012
If Reed wants to hold out -- or hint that a holdout is in the offing -- that's his right. But criticizing the media for covering his game of chicken with the Ravens is a pointless endeavor. Reed talks of being a businessman, but this is part of the business, too.
