NFL Injury Report:
Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed is preparing for this
weekend’s Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers. But since the veteran is
in the final year of his contract, he’s fielding just as many free agency
questions as he is about the upcoming big game. Yesterday he raised eyebrows
and excited a certain team’s fan base when he said he could “definitely” see
himself playing for the New England Patriots and coach Bill Belichick,
according to Jeff Howe of The Boston Globe.
"Yeah, oh yeah, man, I could definitely play for coach
Belichick," Reed responded. "He is a great coach. I'm sure he
can help me to expand my football knowledge even more as a player and as a
coach, so if I'm ever able to be around him, just like I was at the Pro Bowl,
I’m still not convinced, but there is a lot of speculation
going around that Sunday will be Reed’s final game with the Ravens. How weird would
it be next season to see a Reed and Ray Lewis-less Baltimore squad?
