Jeremy Conn: Reed, He Gone…
Of all the players I’ve watched play in a Baltimore Ravens uniform, Ed Reed is by far the most exciting.
Ed Reed is the only player in NFL history to have a Punt, Kick, Interception and Fumble recovery return for a touchdown. He holds the all-time record for return yards in NFL history. Reed has 61 career interceptions and 9 interceptions in the post season.
In my humble opinion, Ed Reed is the greatest Free Safety to ever play the game.
I remember watching him in college at the University of Miami making plays before making his way to the purple and black. My favorite memory of Reed was in a game against Boston College. One of his teammates intercepted a pass and Reed came up to him and took the ball from him and ran it back for a touchdown.
It’s going to be odd seeing Reed sporting that number 20 for the Houston Texans, but it seems like that’s the way of the league.
