Tributes pour in for Ed Reed
Ed Reed officially called it a career as a member of the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday after not seeing any NFL action in 2014.
The nine-time Pro Bowl safety spent 11 seasons in Baltimore before spending a final lackluster campaign with the Texans and Jets in 2013.
Reed holds the NFL record for career interception return yards and was voted The Associated Press 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
You can catch many of those yards in the highlight video posted by the Ravens to commemorate Reed’s time in Baltimore.

Wish I could say I was the best safety in Louisiana that graduated in 1997 but that's a lie. That's be Ed Reed! Enjoy retirement my friend!

Kind of fitting that Ed & Troy retire the same year. How awesome will it be if they get it right & go into the HOF together?!

Ed Reed was to the safety position what Deion Sanders was to the cornerback position. #OneOfAKind
