While Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis has declared he’s retiring following the Super Bowl, safety Ed Reed is not considering calling it a career just yet. The All-Pro told reporters, including Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun, yesterday that he’ll be “playing next year.” Ed Reed said "I'll be playing next year. Next question." — Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiecsun) January 24, 2013 Reed has talked about retirement before, but it seems like he’s as close to a sure bet as can be to return for 2013. However, there’s no guarantee that if he does decide to play another season, he’ll be doing so with the Ravens. Reed is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season, and he figures to garner significant interest. Baltimore could elect to use their franchise tag on the veteran safety, but they may instead need to exercise it on another player, such as quarterback Joe Flacco. This season Reed totaled 58 tackles and four interceptions with three fumble recoveries and one touchdown scored.

While talking to the media today, Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed was asked if he plans on retiring after the Super Bowl, like his teammate Ray Lewis. “I’ll be playing next year.

Ray preaching, but who's listening?

Never has an athlete been more ready to grab the bully pulpit provided by the excessive word orgy that is the lead-up to the Super Bowl than Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. The question is: Are we ready for what he has to say? Because if the Gospel according to Tebow led to unnecessary controversy, which it did, wait until they get a load of The Gospel according to Ray. He has been...

A family unites for the Super Bowl for a momentary escape from tragedy

We are not Jim and John. Neither of us coach the Baltimore Ravens or the San Francisco 49ers.
