Ed Reed Arrives At Ravens Training Camp

There were rumblings in the past month that Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed, who is in the final year of a six-year contract, may have considered being a holdout from training camp in hopes of gaining an extension. Reed shot those rumors down early and officially ended speculation on Wednesday, as he reported for Ravens training camp.

Garrett Downing at the official Ravens website reported that Reed has arrived for camp on Wednesday to prepare for his 11th season with the team. Reed has spoken several times this offseason about wanting to play for several more years, but has also publicly discussed thinking about retirement.

If he is able to prove throughout the rest of 2012 that he still has plenty left in the tank, he may end up getting a multi-year extension from the club that will allow him to end his career with the Ravens.

Ravens To Let Ed Reed Test Free Agency In 2013?

Safety Ed Reed has been a fixture of the Baltimore Ravens defense since 2002, when the team selected him with the 24th pick in the first round of the draft that year. In 2013, Reed could be all set to dip his toes in the waters of free agency when his contract runs out after this season, and the Ravens might just let him do that, according to a report from ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Baltimore could follow a similar path with Reed as they did with Ray Lewis in 2009, letting him test the waters of free agency before extending him a deal. Reed was reported to be seeking an extension with the Ravens this year, and publicly mulled retirement earlier in the spring.

Reed turns 34 in September, putting him firmly in the twilight of his career. Teams could be leery of signing a player who turns 35 at the start of the 2013 season, setting up the potential for the Ravens to give him a smaller deal.

Reed had three interceptions and 60 total tackles during the regular season in 2011.

Ed Reed Doesn't Plan To Hold Out From Ravens Training Camp, According To Report

Ed Reed is seeking an extension with the Baltimore Ravens as he enters the final year of his six-year contract. While the veteran safety has been disgruntled with the organization this offseason, he has apparently told family members that he won't be holding out from the team during the regular season.

"Everyone is talking about a holdout," the relative said. "Ed isn't going to hold out. He told me he isn't going to hold out. He speaks his mind about some things, gets some things off his chest, but he's never said he is going to hold out. He'll show up when he has to be there and he'll play out his contract."

Reed will turn 34 in September and has hinted at retirement over the last two seasons. He continues to play at an All-Pro level, though the Ravens are naturally wary about signing him to a multi-year deal, as Reed has struggled with injuries, notably in his neck and shoulder, in recent years.

Ravens S Ed Reed 'Not 100 Percent Committed' To Playing In 2012

Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed is on the fence about playing another season in the NFL. Speaking with Adam Schein on SiriusXM radio on Thursday, Reed said that he was "not 100 percent committed" to playing football in 2012.

That marks a change from a statement Reed made earlier this spring. In March, he told the Florida Sun-Sentinel that he envisioned himself playing another four of five years. He also said he wanted to spend those years with the Ravens, the only team Reed has played for since being drafted by the Ravens in the 1st round of the 2002 NFL Draft.

Reed turns 34 in September. He played in all 16 games regular season for the Ravens last season, finishing the season with three interceptions, a sack and 60 tackles. His interception against the Houston Texans in the playoffs last season helped secure the win and a ticket to the AFC Championship, where Baltimore narrowly lost to New England.
