There has been a lot of regarding whether or not Ravens safety Ed Reed was going to return for another season.
He was asked about potentially retiring on Thursday to which Reed responded: “I’ll be playing next year. Next question,” per Jeff Zrebiec
Reed, 35, hasn’t had to same kind of impact that we are used to seeing out 9-time Pro Bowler this season. On top of that, Baltimore is in a tough position financially seeing as they’ll be forced to extend QB Joe Flacco a rather sizable contract in the coming months, which leaves some question as to whether or not Reed will be back in Baltimore come the start of the 2013 season.
The Falcons, Dolphins and Saints have all been tossed out as speculative options for Reed to consider.
We have Reed listed as the No. 36 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
