New York Jets safety Ed Reed is contemplating retirement but says he wants to return for one more season in the NFL, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York.

Many assumed Reed would retire after a 2013 season in which he was cut by the Houston Texans and finished the year as a backup for the Jets. But Reed is seriously considering coming back, and said he was particularly interested in returning to the Jets.

Following one of the best seasons of his 12-year NFL career in 2012, Reed left the Baltimore Ravens and became one of the biggest free agent signings of the offseason when he signed a three-year, $14.875 million contract with the Texans. He failed to make an impact in Houston and was released in mid-November.

He was promptly picked up by the Jets, where he played mostly on passing downs. He finished 2013 with 38 total tackles and three interceptions.
