Reed back to Baltimore?
By Tim Kavanagh
Though there are a number of players who will sign richer contracts this offseason, there are few whose free agency will attract more attention than Baltimore Ravens S Ed Reed. We've seen him linked to other potential contenders like the New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints, though some believe that he's more likely to just stick in Baltimore.
Count Ravens HC John Harbaugh amongst those who want him back in a Ravens uniform in 2013.
"We had that conversation on the bus ride away from the stadium actually," Harbaugh revealed, per the Baltimore Sun. "He and I both agreed that we want him back. I want him back, and Ed wants to come back. ... You never know how these things are going to work out, but we are going to work like crazy to work it out because Ed's a Baltimore Raven. Hopefully, we can make that happen."
It's a tricky situation. The Ravens are tight up against the salary cap, and have a handful of key players set to hit free agency. There are some tough decisions ahead for Baltimore GM Ozzie Newsome.
