The New York Jets are sticking with veteran free safety Ed Reed as the starter despite making no big plays in three games since being signed to a one-year contract.
He was beaten for a touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens and missed a tackle against the Miami Dolphins on a Brian Hartline touchdown.
The Jets have given up six touchdown passes since Reed was acquired. Reed is 35 years old and a former NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
"He's going to be starting unless he's injured," Jets coach Rex Ryan told reporters. "I think Ed gives us the best shot If you look at it from a statistical standpoint, I can understand the question. "We all saw him miss the tackle on Hartline's touchdown. But Ed did his job, I don't think there's any doubt."
