Reed said after January's divisional-round playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts that he was considering retirement at age 31 following a season filled with neck, hip and groin injuries. He missed four games in December because of the hip injury, then returned for the regular-season finale and two playoff contests.
Reed, a first-round draft pick by the Ravens in 2002, is a six-time Pro Bowl selection and was the 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. He has a franchise-record 46 interceptions and 13 career touchdowns, and he's the only player in NFL history to score TDs by blocking a punt and returning a punt, an interception and a fumble.
