Harbaugh says Ed Reed will report to training camp

After weeks of sending messages suggesting that a training-camp holdout is coming, Ravens safety Ed Reed has provided the clearest signal yet.

He’ll be there.

The Ravens proclaim via their official Twitter page that Reed has told coach John Harbaugh that the veteran Pro Bowler will be present and accounted for on Wednesday.

Harbaugh also said he has a “great talk” with Reed, who skipped a mandatory minicamp last month without warning.

Reed presumably wants a new contract.  His current deal expires after the coming season, with a base salary of $7.2 million.  It’s unknown whether the “great talk” included a commitment that the team will work to give him long-term security.

If a new deal is to be done, Reed may first want to hire an agent.  According to NFLPA records, he has no representation.

  1. And if Reed has a huge game in Week 1 against the Bengals… on Monday Night Football…

    I guarantee all you will hear on NFL Network the next morning is Deion Sanders telling “BALTIMORE… PAY THE MAN!”

  2. And as the haters continue to hate, Ed Reed will play out his contract and prove once again he is the G.O.A.T.

  3. Polamalu is the most overrated player in the game. He’s as much of a safety as Ricky Williams was a QB in Miami’s wildcat offense. Safeties have to actually be able to defend a deep pass.

  4. Polamalu > Reed.


    u guys have no football knowledge pull up reeds stats along with TP and see which one is dominat! so sad that steeler fans try to say reed isnt better when its easy to tell if u KNOW FOOTBALL!

  5. I care…Ed Reed is still one of the most dominant players in the league. Regardless if you have him and Polamalu 1-2 or 2-1 father time is closing in on both of their careers. I for one appreciate watching both of them playing at a level others can only dream about. Lucky us that were fortunate to not only see them play but to see them play on opposing defenses that were top notch and dominating! The icing on the cake is that they were part of arguably the best two defenses and the best NFL rivalry over the past ten years.

  6. Funny how jstreet says “u guys have no football knowledge pull up reeds stats along with TP and see which one is dominate” when Polamalu and Reed play completely different safety positions with completey different assignments. Troy Polamalu The strong safety is usually the larger and stronger of the two, providing extra protection against run plays by standing closer to the line of scrimmage, usually on the strong side. Ed Reed The free safety is usually the smaller and faster of the two, and is usually the deepest player on the defense, providing help on long pass plays. Both are great at what they do but you’re comparing apples to oranges here. And if you had any football knowledge jstreet then you would have known the difference between the two positions.
