Reed wants a new contract

It doesn’t matter if Ed Reed will turn 32 this season, and it doesn’t matter if his surgically-repaired hip is about 35 percent healthy (his estimation). He wants a new contract.

So he told 105.7 The Fan on Tuesday, as captured here by the Baltimore Sun .

“I’m not making it a big deal,” Reed said on The Norris and Davis Show. “[But] I think it needs to be taken care of.”

See, I don’t understand this, and I really won’t understand it if the Ravens relent and give him guaranteed money. Reed has three years left on his contract that will pay him $19.7 million. But we don’t even know for sure that Reed won’t retire after this season.

From the story:

“I’m not going to ask the Ravens about anything if I’m not going to play any much longer,” he said. “I appreciate the opportunity that the Ravens have given me. I’m not about to ask them for anything if I’m not going to be playing. My focus is to get myself back. I’m coming back for at least for one more year.”

It was four years ago when Reed signed a six-year contract extension worth $40 million (a deal that officially took effect in 2007). According to his agent, Reed received a $15 million signing bonus in the largest deal ever given to a safety at that time.

In his interview on 105.7 FM, Reed seemed to base his pursuit of a new deal on the fact that he has maintained his level of play while other safeties have not. He pointed out that Ken Hamlin (who signed a $38 million deal with Dallas in July 2008) and Roy Williams (the eighth overall pick in the 2002 draft – the same draft where Reed was selected 24th) have since moved on to other teams. Hamlin recently signed with the Ravens because of Reed’s uncertain status.


At this point, Reed said it’s unclear whether he’ll be healed enough to begin the regular season in Baltimore.
