Ed Reed Thanks Baltimore Ravens Fans With Full Page Newspaper Ad (Photo)

Former Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed bolted the defending Super Bowl champions this offseason in favor of a bigger deal with the Houston Texans. As has become the trend among longtime members of a team that leave for another franchise, Reed wanted to thank the fans that he spent so much time performing for so he took out a full page ad in the Baltimore Sun.

The Ravens shared the ad that Reed took out on Sunday morning via their Instagram page.

Here is an image of the ad:

It read:

Ravens Nation, My eleven seasons in Baltimore were more than I would have ever

imagined, which is why I have such deep love for you all. I will forever

cherish my time with the Ravens and the chills that ran down my spine

when I finally kissed the Lombardi Trophy.

Special thanks to the City, Team, Organization and all the Fans! I’m going

to miss being a part of this tremendous team and organization, but I’ll

always be Baltimore and my Foundation will remain in this community,

this is not a goodbye, but a See You Soon.

Thank you for everything Baltimore, God Bless you.

ED REED #20

Reed will return to Baltimore later this season as a member of the Texans when the two sides face off, but he wanted to reach out to the Baltimore fans before that moment. It was a very classy move.
