Ed Reed doesn't want to say goodbye, but he does want to say thanks.
The former Ravens safety took out a full page ad in the Sports section of today's Baltimore Sun to deliver a message to the fans who have cheered him for more than a decade.
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
Reed, a nine-time Pro Bowler, signed a three-year deal with the Houston Texans on Friday.
