Following the conclusion of the 2009 season, Ravens S Ed Reed admitted he was pondering retirement.
"I've been thinking about it," he said. "It kind of hit me on the sideline. It hit me now because I don't know how much I'm going to be able to have going forward. It'll be a long offseason just thinking about. It hurts just thinking about it."
At the time (January 18th), he said the odds of him playing in 2010 were 50/50. Well, his friend and financial advisor, Brad Davis, tells Jason La Canfora of NFL Network, he'll be playing in 2010.
"Ed is as committed to football as I have ever seen," Davis said. "Come September, if everything continues to go well with his health, Ed will be on the field."
Reed tells Davis that he feels like he's 25 again.
The Ravens defense can't fall too far with Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, no matter how many years they've been playing now.
