Ed Reed is the consummate student of the game. Not only has he always been an exceptional athlete playing safety, but he’s also knowledgeable beyond his years about the sport of football.
Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome is clearly aware of that, and in an effort to keep that knowledge in Baltimore for as long as he can, Newsome has offered Reed a coaching job as soon as he retires according to USA Today.
“Ed wants to be a coach, so he sees this as an opportunity to start his coaching career by helping those young players come along,” Newsome said. “The thing about Ed is, he doesn’t just talk about it. He goes out and works the way you have to work to get it done.”
“That’ll be up to Ed Reed,” Newsome said. “That will be something that (Ravens owner) Steve (Bisciotti) and I can talk about. But Ed still has a lot of football left to play. So we’ll cross that hurdle. If Ed decides he wants to do that, I think we can find a way.”
I like the sound of that.

It’s no secret that Patriots coach Bill Belichick is a giant fan of Ed Reed.
From Belichick musing with Tom Brady about Reed’s defensive skills in A Football Life to the lovefest that Reed gets every time Belichick is asked about him before a Ravens game, it’s obvious that Reed is among the players Belichick most admires, if he’s not the favorite.
Now, there’s a chance...

Pollard told CBS Sports' Clark Judge that he doesn't think fans
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...

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome says the decision to fire offensive coordinator Cam Cameron in December was orchestrated solely by coach John Harbaugh.
Cameron was dismissed the day after Baltimore lost to the Washington Redskins on Dec. 9. There had been speculation either Newsome or owner Steve Bisciotti pushed Harbaugh into making the call.
Asked Friday if that was the...

Joe Flacco will get a massive contract from the Baltimore Ravens after the season, even if they want to play coy.
General manager Ozzie Newsome said the price tag won't change -- regardless of the outcome of the Super Bowl.
