"Thereâs a lot of talk out there. Iâm not going to say Iâm 50-50 because Iâm not," Reed told the South Florida Sun Sentinel before he and Ravens tackle Bryant McKinnie were inducted into the University of Miami Hall of Fame on Thursday night. "I want to play football. But itâs something me and my team have been discussing the last couple of weeks. My partners, they do a great job of making sure I know the pros and cons of whatâs going on with my body and with the organization and where weâre at. I plan on doing it, but depending, it could change."
It was the first time the 33-year-old Reed has addressed his plans for the future since shortly after Baltimore lost a heartbreaking 23-20 nail-biter in the AFC Championship Game.
Reed leads all active NFL players with 57 career interceptions.
"If it was up to me, Iâd be with a walking cane out there," Reed said. "I donât know, man. I think four to five years is a reality for me."
Reed also told the newspaper that he intended to stay with the Ravens. "Baltimore is home for me unless they say otherwise," he said.
