This league has witnessed some of the greatest players in the history of the sport hang up their cleats.
With guys like Brian Urlacher, Ronde Barber, Ray Lewis and Jeff Saturday to name a few. All of those guys will one day be entered in the NFL Hall of Fame when their time comes.
Veteran safety Ed Reed will surely join his former teammate Ray Lewis but it won’t happen anytime soon. Despite his hip injury and being released by the Houston Texans after signing a multi-year deal with them, Reed plans on playing for a couple more seasons.
This is according to Manish Mehta on Twitter.

Reed has already been in the league for over a decade, but has seen his play go down hill this season. He’s a man who has a long list of accomplishments and awards that have been added to his resume.
He’s contemplated retirement earlier in his career but as we all know, nothing happened.
Hopefully he can stay with the Jets for the final couple years of his career.
