Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed does not want fans to be fooled into thinking safety is the NFL’s priority.
“All of a sudden, the NFL is starting to get sued for all the stuff they haven’t protected over the years, and they haven’t done … now you want to take it out on us?” Reed asked after the Ravens’ win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, via SI.com. “Take it out on yourself. It’s easy for them to do the things they’re doing, fining us and make us look bad, like we’re the bad guy, when we’re not.
