Sunday could be Reed's final home game as a Raven

OWINGS MILLS - Baltimore Ravens Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed declined to speculate on his future Wednesday entering what could possibly be his final home game in a Ravens uniform.

Reed's contract expires at the end of the season and it's been speculated that Baltimore may opt to let Reed depart as a free agent, although it's also possible the 34-year old who has dealt with a nerve impingement in his neck and shoulder for the past several seasons could choose to retire.

"I am not thinking about that right now," Reed said Wednesday.

Reed's the Ravens' all-time leader in interceptions and is regarded as the premier safety of his era, but his physical skills have progressively diminished in recent years. He's also had lapses in coverage that have led to big plays for opposing passing games this season. And once an aggressive defender in run support, Reed's willingness as a tackler has been called into question in recent seasons as he's battled through the nerve impingement.
