Ed Reed to play in Lardarius Webb's charity softball game

Former Ravens free safety Ed Reed is scheduled to play in cornerback Lardarius Webb's annual charity softball game, Webb tweeted Tuesday morning.

Reed, 35, last played at M&T Bank Stadium last season when the Ravens defeated the New York Jets.


The former NFL Defensive Player of the Year last played for the Ravens during their Super Bowl championship season in 2012 when he intercepted four passes in the regular season and another during a Super Bowl XLVII victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Reed signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the Houston Texans before last season but was released in November and then played the final seven games with the New Yokr Jets under former Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan.


While playing for the Ravens, the 2002 first-round draft pick from the University of Miami had 61 interceptions and was selected to nine Pro Bowls.

Tickets for the June 1 softball game are available through Webb's charitable foundation website.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco and wide receivers Torrey Smith and Steve Smith among the other players scheduled to attend.

The game was shifted from Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen this year.
