Super Bowl XLVII is in the books as the Baltimore Ravens hoist the Lombardi Trophy for the second time in franchise history. There will be many tough decisions for the Ravens to make in coming weeks regarding their personnel. Veteran S Ed Reed told reporters last night, that unlike teammate Ray Lewis, he will not be retiring after this season. Reed, 34, said in his post-game comments that he plans to play again next season, but he just doesn’t know where right now.
Two teams have been mentioned as possible destinations for Reed next season if he cannot agree to terms with the Ravens next season. The New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has stated that he believes Reed is the best safety he’s ever seen play the game. Chuck Pagano, Indianapolis Colts head coach was the Ravens defensive coordinator prior to joining the Colts organization.
CBS analyst Jason LaCanfora reported on Sunday that he has heard from several sources that he believes Reed will join the Colts in 2013. Indianapolis needs major upgrades at the safety position. Reed is still a highly effective player at his position.
