OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Ravens safety Ed Reed isn’t planning on joining teammate Ray Lewis in retirement after the Super Bowl.
“I’ll be playing next year,” Reed said Thursday before Baltimore hit the practice field in preparation for their Feb. 3 Super Bowl matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.
There was speculation that the 34-year-old Reed might retire after this season.
Earlier this month, in announcing his intention to step down after the playoffs, Lewis spoke of taking a “last ride.”
To which Reed said Thursday: “No, it’s not my last ride. I just bought a bike.”
Now in his 11th season, Reed hasn’t missed a start since 2010, when he sat out Baltimore’s first six games with a hip injury. This season, he was one of only two players on the Ravens defense (along with cornerback Cary Williams) to start in all 16 games.
Reed has been selected to play in nine Pro Bowls, including each one since 2006.
Reed’s 61 career interceptions are a franchise record, and he has an NFL-record 1,541 ya
