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.
