Ed Reed and Ray Lewis Hugging after a win (AP Photo)
One of the biggest story lines heading into Super Bowl XLVII is that Ray Lewis will play his final game in the NFL after 17 great seasons.
He himself said that it would be his last ride, and has put on a few impressive performances in the playoffs to help get his team to where they are. Many think that the announcement of his retirement has helped the team play at another level, getting them to the big dance.
But according to teammate Ed Reed, we shouldn’t be sold on Ray hanging up the cleats, via NFL.com’s Chris Wesseling.
“Long-time teammate Ed Reed warned reporters gathered in New Orleans not to be “so sure” that Super Bowl XLVII will indeed be the future Hall of Famer’s last game” Wrote Wesseling.
Reed also added “Maybe he’ll play 10 games next year”.
Will Lewis hang ‘em up? Or will this majestic run give him the thirst to give it one more go-around?
I think that Sunday is the last time we’ll see Ray on the field as a player, but I wouldn’t mind seeing him stick it out for one more season, although ten games isn’t a full season.

Ray Lewis is finishing a solid NFL career the way every player dreams about. He’s logged 17 seasons, brought in countless accolades, won a Super Bowl, secured a post-retirement deal with ESPN and has a chance to go out on top with a championship.
But, like many athletes, Lewis may be subject to that age-old malady: not knowing when to hang it up.
While Lewis announced before the...
According to multiple reports, there is a significant chance that come March, Ravens safety Ed Reed will end his time in Baltimore and become a free agent. While it is unlikely that at the age of 34 many teams would be willing to offer him enough money to lure him away from the team he has spent his entire career with, ESPN’s Adam Schefter and SI.com’s Peter King both reported...
You never say never in sports and especially when money talks. Ravens star safety Ed Reed will be a free agent this off-season, and Pro Football Talk via Peter King is reporting that Reed will on the radar of the rival New England Patriots.

After the AFC Championship Game between the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots ended, we got the impression that a lot of the guys in purple and black despise Tom Brady and company. Despite the fact that Brady may have tried to cleat him during the game, Ed Reed does not sound like he is one of the Ravens players who dislike the Patriots.
With Reed set to become a free agent...
Prior to the Baltimore Ravens’ playoff run, veteran
linebacker Ray Lewis announced that he would retire following the 2012 season.
It’s carried him through to the Super Bowl, and Lewis continues to say he’ll
hang up his cleats following this weekend’s final game of the season. However,
long-time teammate Ed Reed is skeptical about Lewis’ retirement talk, according
NEW ORLEANS -- The Baltimore Ravens left home Monday to thousands of fans braving the ice and rain for a harbor sendoff rally, and landed in New Orleans with a relaxed vibe, ready to embrace Super Bowl XLVII. Before even getting settled in their hotel, however, head coach Jim Harbaugh and selected players were individually asked about President Obama saying he would "have...
The Super Bowl is, at its core, a party. It is the NFL's celebration of itself and its awesomeness. And like any party, there are certain unwritten rules of etiquette. There are things you just do not talk about -- and safety is one of them.
So when an interview in which President Obama said that, if he had a son he'd "have to think long and hard" about letting...
When Robert Griffin III went down with torn ligaments in his knee during the Redskins’ wild-card weekend loss, speculation began to arise about the conditions at FedEx Field.
About a month after the incident forced RG3 into yet another knee surgery — he also had his ACL repaired in college — Ravens safety Ed Reed decided to chime in on the matter.
“For all that money down...
Super Bowl Media week started today and I thought it’d be fun to guess some of the things that Ray Lewis will say to reporters. Remember, he is the lamb bone of god now, or however that phrase goes.
“And so the almighty spoke in to my helmet and told me, Ray, son, are we human? Or are we dancers?”
“And he who cast the first rock towards my kingdom will suffer a grievous injury...
