Ed Reed says Ray Lewis is best Raven ever
Lewis or Reed, Reed or Lewis? Picking the best Raven of all time isn't an easy task, but former safety Ed Reed says Ray Lewis has his vote, and the voting public agrees.
The folks over at CSN Baltimore have been hosting a bracket tournament to let fans determine the best Ravens player in franchise history. With Lewis and Reed as the last two players standing, Reed offered up his opinion on who should win, although he didn't partake in the voting.
"If I did I would vote for [Lewis]," Reed said. "I would vote for my big brother. He was there before me."
The fans apparently concurred with Reed, as Lewis ended up the victor with 69 percent of the vote.
There's no doubt that when people think of the Ravens franchise, Ray Lewis is the first player that comes to mind. He was the backbone of one of the best defenses ever in 2000 and a two-time Super Bowl champion. Lewis already had six years under his belt in Baltimore when Reed was drafted in 2002.
Both players came from the University of Miami, and both players finished their time in Baltimore after Super Bowl XLVII.
