NFL news roundup: Ed Reed surgery, Daryl Washington arrest headline Friday's news

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Surgeries and arrests occupy the NFL headlines on Friday, from Ed Reed to Daryl Washington.

Bill Belichick's admiration for former Rutgers and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano is well documented. The Patriots coach has shown an affinity for Schiano's former players in the NFL Draft and is now going to meet up with Schiano and his staff to exchange notes. It's a curious move considering the two teams meet in Week 3.

Here's a look at that story and the rest of Friday's NFL news.
