Ray Lewis, Ed Reed will attend Ravens’ White House ceremony


Several members of last year’s Ravens who are no longer with the team have decided not to attend the Super Bowl champions’ White House ceremony on Wednesday. But the two best defensive players in franchise history will be there.

Ray Lewis, who retired after the Super Bowl, and Ed Reed, who signed with the Texans as a free agent, will attend the ceremony, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Brendon Ayanbadejo, who was cut by the Ravens after the season and is now a free agent, is also expected to attend. But Reed may be the only player in attendance who’s now a member of another team. He is currently recovering from hip surgery and can’t do much on-field work for the Texans anyway.

Anquan Boldin, Bernard Pollard, Paul Kruger, Sean Considine, Dennis Dixon and Cary Williams are among the players who were on the team last year but are no longer with the Ravens and will not be at the White House.
