The "REEEEEEEEEED" chant will be heard at least one more time at M&T Bank Stadium.
The Ravens announced Thursday that former safety Ed Reed will be announced last before Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams. Reed will come out of the tunnel following the introduction of the Ravens starting defense.
It will be part of the organization honoring of one of its greatest players. Reed, who announced his retirement in May, will be inducted into the Ravens Ring of Honor at halftime.
Reed, 37, spent 11 of his 12 NFL seasons with the Ravens. His final game with the team was the Ravens' 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Reed was born in St. Rose, La.
Reed had 61 interceptions for the Ravens, and he returned seven of them for touchdowns.
