Baltimore Ravens don't want to re-sign Ed Reed


Coach John Harbaugh has said that the Baltimore Ravens are not interested in re-signing Ed Reed, who was recently waived and released by the Houston Texans.

The Ravens have since moved on from Reed, placing veteran James Ihedigbo and rookie James Elam, who was drafted in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft, in the backfield.

From an article on ESPN,

“There are no plans to change our secondary personnel at this time,” Harbaugh said. “We’re happy with what we have. Our guys are playing well, so that’s where we’re at.”


Reed will be considered one of the greatest players in Ravens history. He went to nine Pro Bowls and was named NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2004.


“Ed is a Raven and he’ll always be a Raven,” Harbaugh said. “I’m sure he’ll be in the ring of honor someday and I’m sure he’ll be in the Hall of Fame someday. We’ve kept in contact with Ed, on and off here regularly. He’s a good friend of everybody here.”

It is highly likely that Ed Reed will wind up with a team this season, although it is unclear at this moment who that team might be.
