Dear John,

Please consider bringing Ed Reed back to the Baltimore Ravens. Clearly, he is not what he once was as a player. However, his ability to get players lined up would be a huge boost to a very young secondary and defense.

I’m not suggesting that Ed assume a starting role over Matt Elam and James Ihedigbo, quite the opposite. I think Reed’s presence during the practice week and in the film room and on the sidelines during games would provide a valuable resource for the young players. Furthermore, I believe the Houston Texans have the onus for Ed’s salary, so the cost would be relatively minimal for the Ravens.

I know that it is mostly me being a fan and Ed Reed being one of my all-time favorite players. You just can’t coach experience and in my opinion Ed’s experience would be a huge asset as the Ravens try to make a push for another playoff berth.

Plus, it would be really nice for Ed to legitimately retire as a Baltimore Raven.

Sincerely,

Paul

Should the Ravens re-sign Ed Reed now that he's been released by the Texans?

About Paul Lukoskie

Paul (aka WickedSolo) has been an avid football fan since he was a little kid. As former player himself (through college only...turning pro and having million dollar contracts and fame just sounded too overwhelming...or he's just a 5'11" 200lb guy who was only good enough to play D-3 ball...but who's counting...) he has a ton of experience in the locker room, on the field, and in the film room during the off-season and the regular season. While serving in the US Navy on active duty he had the opportunity to check out the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama and caught the attention of a few Ravens' scouts (not too hard to spot the only guy in Mobile wearing camo fatigues with a purple Ed Reed jersey) and they were kind enough to point out some of the things they look for when scouting players. From that point on, Paul was hooked on the draft and everything leading up to it. He regularly contributes draft-based analytical pieces on the RSR forum and is constantly providing Ravens fans with collegiate players to check out. Paul is a Charm City native through and through and after being Honorably discharged from the Navy lives with his wife Ashly and son Jack. Jack is less than a year old, but is in the process of training to play for the Ravens in 2033. More from Paul Lukoskie
