Former-Baltimore Ravens star Ed Reed had $50k stolen from his car this week, according to police.
Reed withdraw the cash from a bank in Houston before driving to a Bank of America. It was there that thieves nabbed the $50k in cash stashed on his front seat.
They smashed Reed's car window before making off with the money, leaving Reed empty handed.
It's a pretty weird story, not least because it is not often that someone needs to carry that amount of cash around these days.
Well, whatever the reason, police are now attempting to recover Reed's money, as reported first by The Big Lead.
Reed, a Hall of Fame lock, finished the season under Rex Ryan at the New York Jets last season after leaving the Houston Texans.
He spent a decade at the Baltimore Ravens, winning a Super Bowl as well as nine Pro Bowl nominations.
The ball-hawk suffered a considerable decline in on-field performance last term though, and it remains to be seen whether he sees much game time for the Jets next season.
