Safety Ed Reed was back with the Ravens on Thursday, another strong signal that he'd be on the field with Baltimore this season despite continued cryptic messages that he would consider skipping camp and possibly part of the season. Reed took part in a workout at team headquarters that was recorded by the Ravens and posted on the team's official website. He did not participate in offseason workouts with the team. Reed, 34, is entering the final year of his contract. This offseason alone, he's said football was no longer a priority -- and a month later said he could see himself playing three or four more years.

Just a day after saying he was going to play this season, safety Ed Reed was at the Baltimore Ravens team facility working out and it was all caught on camera.
After watching the video, I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to work out like Ed, so I can get some ripped abs like him.
All joking aside, we still don’t know if Reed plans on showing up to training...
It seems like an obvious statement to make, but Ed Reed is a key to the Ravens' defense, and John Harbaugh thinks he'll have the Ravens' star safety back.
Harbaugh told 105.7 The Fan, "He’s going to play this year and be here. It looks like that is the case."
Ray Lewis has always been the face of the Ravens' defense, but linebackers are not the premium...
According to Brent Harris of CSN Baltimore, Ravens safety Ed Reed told him that he decided to retire early in the offseason, that’s why he didn’t show up for any of the offseason activities.
Reed then told Harris that he recently changed his mind and that he’ll play this season because he loves the game.
With Reed contemplating retirement, this could be his...
The biggest story out of Ravens camp this offseason hasn’t been about Terrell Suggs’ injury, or Joe Flacco saying he thinks he’s the best quarterback in the league or even that Chuck Pagano bolted to coach the kids in Indy this year. Those were all key pieces to an odd offseason, but the Ray Rice dilemna was the biggest story during the break.
Would he or wouldn’t he was...
As one of the few true workhorse backs remaining in the NFL, Ray Rice received a new contract from the Ravens reflecting his elite status in the league. In 2011, he gained 2,068 yards from scrimmage, rushed for 12 scores and averaged 4.7 yards per carry with highlights reminiscent of Barry Sanders. The statistic that best illustrates Rice’s versatility was his 76 receptions, the...
Now that the Ravens have inked Ray Rice to a $40 million contract, the next priority for the organization is locking up quarterback Joe Flacco to a long-term deal. Flacco is maintaining his focus on the upcoming season, though, not his unresolved contract status as he heads into the final year of his rookie contract, according to his agent. "Joe is very, very excited for...
With the football season coming up, what better way for a Ravens fan to support the purple and black than with this hog. This 2006 American Ironhorse “LSC” Lone Star Chopper was autographed by Ray Lewis himself. Obviously this is no where near as cool as Shaq’s tricked out van, but a customized Raven’s motorcycle signed by the murderer himself has to find a home somewhere...
