On a side note, I could not find a story for it, but below is this tweet from 3 TV's Tim Ring... Interesting. This sparked a lot of conversation in the Twitter world yesterday. Adam Schefter of ESPN also said that he heard from a source that Reid coming to the Cardinals is a '95 percent' certainty.

Later on, the rumors were dispelled. It was all likely floated out by Reid's agent, Bob Lamonte. Team officials including VP of Communications, Mark Dalton stated that the team was nowhere close to hiring Reid. Jason La Canfora is also reporting that the Cardinals have an interview scheduled with Reid today (Wednesday). Hopefully we will have more info then.
