Ed Reed Officially Retiring From NFL Thursday

Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that long-timer Ravens S Ed Reed will announce his retirement from the NFL on Thursday during a press conference.

Reed, 36, was a first round pick of the Ravens back in 2002. He spent the first 11 years of his career in Baltimore before he was signed on with the Texans as an unrestricted free agent in 2013.

The Jets signed him to a contract after he was placed on waivers, but he wound up sitting out the entire 2014 season.

Over the course of 12 years, Reed recorded 531 tackles, six sacks, 11 forced fumbles, 13 recoveries, 64 interceptions and scored nine defensive touchdowns. He was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection as well as a five-time first-team All Pro and should get Hall of Fame consideration in the coming years.

    Hope you know that this was an April Fools joke by Reed. He sent a follow up tweet a few minutes later.

      The post has been taken down. My apology for the bad mistake on our part, but I appreciate you taking the time to point this out.

    Should get HOF “consideration”? Lol what? He’s a first ballot lock. Greatest safety of all time.

      I agree with you about Reed. I was just being conservative in the post.
