One of the greatest safetys of all time, Ed Reed, will face a serious decision after this Sunday’s Super Bowl game. He is set to become a free agent and there is plenty of speculation on whether he will retire or sign a new NFL contract.

But the question is that if he does decide to continue playing, will it be in Baltimore?

He could return to the same team that drafted him where he has landed nine pro bowls in his 11 seasons. Or he could take another route.

Recent reports have been connecting Reed to New England where he has a good relationship with head coach Bill Belichick.

This speculation was fueled when Peter King of SI.com predicted on last Sunday’s Pro Bowl pregame show that Reed will sign with the Patriots.

Reed was specifically asked by reporters Wednesday whether he could envision himself playing in Foxboro.

“Yeah, oh yeah man, I could definitely play for coach Belichick. He is a great coach. I’m sure he can help me to expand my football knowledge even more as a player and as a coach, so if I’m ever able to be around him, just like I was at the Pro Bowl, it’s huge.”

“It’s the reason why I wear my sweater cut off a little bit. He’s the first guy I saw like, ‘That’s cool.’ You know, that’s cool. He cuts those sweater sleeves, and he’ll be comfortable.”

Either way, Super Bowl XLVII  is expected to be Reed’s last in a Ravens uniform. Don’t be surprised if you see him shacking up with Tom Brady and the Pats next season.

Why Paying College Athletes Will Ruin The Already Tainted Game

College athletes have a pretty nice little setup. They get to have some, if not all, of their college education paid for; they get immediately placed into the top tier of the social ladder, and many of them get to leave college with very little debt. That doesn’t sound too bad at all. These student […]
