Ed Reed seemed overcome with emotion when he was inducted into the Ravens ring of honor during halftime of Sunday’s 16-13 win over St. Louis. According to general manager Ozzie Newsome, Reed’s next ceremony will be in Canton. 

Reed spent 11 years with the Ravens as their first-round pick in 2002. He was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection and five-time All-Pro. He signed a one-contract last May to retire as a Raven.

After being introduced to chants of ‘Reeeeeeeed" at halftime, Newsome presented Reed with a trophy and a painting before saying that he looked forward to Reed joining him in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 

Reed finished off his speech by singing Eddie Money’s "Two Tickets to Paradise," the same song he sang during the Ravens’ parade for winning Super Bowl XLVII.
