Ravens teammates honor Ed Reed on social media

Keely Diven of CSN Baltimore compiles a bunch of social media posts from Ed Reed’s teammates honoring him in his retirement. Although Ed Reed was never a big fan of the media, he was always willing to lead and speak with his teammates. Obviously, he left an impression on many of them. Some of the notable posts are from Justin Tucker, Bernard Pollard, Torrey Smith, and Lardarius Webb. LINK

Will Hill Signs Free Agent Tender

According to Garrett Downing of BaltimoreRavens.com, Will Hill has signed his tender and will officially remain a Raven in 2015. It’s somewhat surprising that nobody gave him an offer sheet considering they would not have had to give up a draft pick to obtain him. It was important for the Ravens to keep him since the safety play besides him was horrible last year. LINK

Ravens post-draft two-deep: Defense

Bo Smolka shows what the roster looks like on defense, going two players deep at every position. He leaves Arthur Brown out of his four inside linebackers. This year will be very important for the 2013 2nd round pick, but Bo doesn’t seem to think he will be a part of the Ravens’ plans. Other positions of note include the Free Safety position and the OLB depth behind Suggs and Dumervil. LINK

Ed Reed: A Legacy of Greatness

Slater Jackson of Purple Reign Show goes over all the things that made Ed Reed special. Those include his ball-hawking skills, his ability to score once he intercepted it, and his unique ability to block punts and return them for touchdowns, which he did three times in his career. LINK

Full Ed Reed Retirement Press Conference

If you missed it yesterday, here is the press conference from Ed Reed’s retirement announcement yesterday in its entirety. It’s a pretty entertaining watch. If it feels uncomfortable in the beginning, don’t worry, it gets a lot better. Ed Reed makes the room burst with laughter quite a few times. The affection that the front office has for Ed is obvious when they speak about him. LINK

Ed Reed Watches & Reacts to Legendary Moments

Ed Reed watches some of his biggest moments with Garrett Downing and gives his reaction. Ed Reed says that one of his favorite teams to play against was Miami because of the connection with the University of Miami. I wish that they would have looked at the three interception returns for TDs from the endzone (one of which was called back against the Jets), but it’s still worth the watch. LINK

The Downside of Best Available: NFL Teams That Still Have Glaring Post-Draft Needs

Robert Mays of Grantland looks at some of the negatives of drafting best player available. This is a strategy that the Ravens adhere to, but they will trade up to get a guy who fills a position of need, like they did with Maxx Williams. Fortunately for the Ravens, they don’t have any glaring needs left to fill. Cornerback depth is a concern, but they do have their top two starters locked up for a few years. LINK

About Tyler Lombardi

Tyler has followed Baltimore sports his entire life. His favorite player growing up was Steve McNair, so he was ecstatic when he became a Raven in 2006. When he’s in front of the TV watching the game, it’s best to avoid non-football discussion. It’s quite likely he isn’t listening anyway, as his girlfriend can attest to.
