In another strong sign that Ed Reed will be ready to go for the Ravens this year, Reed was actually at the team’s facility getting in a workout on Thursday, six days before veterans are due to report to training camp.
The Ravens have posted video of Reed working out on the team’s website, and he appears to be running well and in good shape.
Reed has spent much of the offseason making cryptic statements about whether he will play this year or not. Although he has never come right out and said so, he has hinted that he isn’t happy with his contract, which pays him $7.2 million this year, and has suggested that he could be ready to retire.
But the smart money has always been on Reed playing for the Ravens this season. And now that Reed is at the team’s facility working out when he doesn’t even have to, it’s safe to say there are no issues: Reed remains a Raven.
