Ed Reed thanks Baltimore Ravens’ fans
In his departure from Baltimore to Houston, Ed Reed had a full page ad in the Baltimore Sun thanking fans for their support.
“More than I would have ever imagined, which is why I have such deep love for you all. I will forever cherish my time with the Ravens and the chills that ran down my spine when I finally kissed the Lombardi Trophy,” Reed wrote in the advertisement.
Reed is another one of the Ravens key players to leave the team after winning the Super Bowl.
The Ravens have lost linebackers Ray Lewis, Paul Kurger, Danelle Ellerbe, wide receiver Anquan Boldin, cornerback Cary Williams and safety Bernard Pollard.
The Pro Bowl safety signed a three-year $15 million contract Friday with the Houston Texans, according to the Associated Press.
Reed played 11 years for the Ravens and won the 2004 Defensive Player of the Year Award. He currently holds the longest interception returns at 106 yards in 2004 and 106 yards in 2008.
Though Reed may be leaving Baltimore, he says that “this is not a goodbye, but a See You Soon.”
