Ed Reed will be playing for the Houston Texans next season, but he paid tribute to the fans that supported him throughout the first decade of his career by taking out a full-page ad in the Baltimore Sun.
The ad reads:
Ravens Nation, My eleven seasons in Baltimore were 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. Special thanks to the City, Team, Organization and all the Fans! I’m going to miss being a part of this tremendous team and organization, but I’ll always be Baltimore and my Foundation will remain in this community, this is not a goodbye, but a See You Soon. Thank you for everything Baltimore, God Bless you. ED REED #20
Truly a classy move from a classy guy. It might actually be better that he went out like this. Who knows what kind of shape the aging Reed, 34, will be in next season?
