Ed Reed spent 10 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens including this season’s Super Bowl Championship. On Friday, Reed became one of several Ravens that opted not to return to the Ravens. Reed instead signed with the Houston Texans for a reported three-year contract worth $15 million.
Sunday, Reed took out a full-page ad in the Baltimore Sun to bid the city, its fans and the organization farewell and to thank them for their support.
Ravens Nation, My eleven seasons in Baltimore were more than I would have ever imagined, which is why I have such deep love for you all. I will forever cherish my time with the Ravens and the chills that ran down my spine when I finally kissed the Lombardi Trophy. Special thanks to the City, Team, Organization and all the Fans! I’m going to miss being a part of this tremendous team and organization, but I’ll always be Baltimore and my Foundation will remain in this community, this is not a goodbye, but a See You Soon. Thank you for everything Baltimore, God Bless you. ED REED #20
