RAVENS’ SAFETY, ED REED, FLIRTS ONCE MORE WITH RETIREMENT
Tue, 22 May 2012 02:59 AM EDT

Hours after Ed Reed said that he was “not 100 % committed right now to playing this year” in an interview, the Baltimore Ravens Pro Bowl safety modified his tune. Baseball odds

In a statement, Reed asserted he is indeed, preparing to play this season, and presumably beyond.

“It’s not about retirement. It’s about my focus in the offseason, health, family and football,” Reed said. “This is the time of the year where players think thru things. My objective is to play football in the years to come.”

Reed, who turns 34 in September, has contemplated retirement since the end of the 2008 season because of worries over a nerve impingement between his neck and shoulder. He told Coach John Harbaugh in February he planned to play in 2012 and indicated he could play 4 to 5 more seasons when he was inducted into the College of Miami Hall of Fame in late March.

“It’s still May,” Reed asserted. “I know that time is kind of inching away at me. We do have a mandatory camp coming up (June 12-14) I’m still in deep thought about because other things are necessary to me now. I still know I am able to play at a very high level. I am able to still go for another couple years physically. But other things is kind of taking place in my life now and making me think about things differently.”

“It has nothing to do with negotiating and all that, man,” Reed recounted. “It’s deeper than negotiating, man.”

Losing Reed would be a major blow to the Ravens considering linebacker Terrell Suggs’ season is doubtful after the NFL Defensive Player of the Year tore his Achilles tendon this month.

Reed’s future has turned into a hot topic recently. He previously said he feels disrespected by his current salary. Reed is scheduled to make $7.2 million in the final year of a 6-year, $44.4 million agreement.

“For what I offer on the football field, for what I give on the football field, and for what they know they’re going to get, it’s far more than these young fellows out here today and what they’re getting,” Reed said a month ago. “And I’m speaking about at any defensive back position right now.”

Health and durability are also worries with Reed. He has missed 10 games during the last 3 seasons. And while he played a full season last year, it was one of Reed’s most displeasing. He finished with 3 interceptions, his fewest in a 16-game season, and he recognized that he missed tackles in 4 straight games at the end of the season as a result of a shoulder injury.

The Ravens, who are in contract talks with QB Joe Flacco and RB Ray Rice, have not expressed an interest in signing Reed to an extension.

When questioned about Reed’s future in March, owner Steve Bisciotti declared: “We’ll either have to get him signed to an extension, he has to say that he’s done or we have to face the likelihood of seeing him play in another uniform. That is the reality of this.”
