If I were a gambling man, I would say that Ed Reed won’t be wearing the purple and black in 2010. Why, you ask, would a future hall of fame safety not return to the Ravens? A couple reason actually.

  • We all know that Ed Reed takes chances to make big plays and he’s sometimes been known to leave the Ravens secondary high and dry. Have you noticed that with Tom Zbikowski playing free safety in place of Ed Reed that Domonique Foxworth suddenly looks like a stud? The guy has three interceptions in his past two games. Could John Harbaugh cut Reed loose?
  • Ed has suffered from nagging injuries. He’s had neck issues and most recently an ailing neck issue. It wouldn’t surprise me if Reed retired at the end of this season.

What do you think? Is Ed Reed back next week?
