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.
