A proposal would ban offensive players from using the crown of their helmets against defenders in the open field. "It's going to be tough on officials," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.
As Baltimore Ravens fans anxiously await the news of their future Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed signing with another team, the fans can at least be a little bit optimistic that a potential return to Baltimore is still in the cards.
Why should Ravens fans be optimistic? The answer is two fold, after the Houston Texans basically treated Ed Reed like he was Peyton Manning last year, as...
