Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said recently that he has all the confidence in the world that free safety Ed Reed will be in Training Camp and will play in 2012. The talk has bounced around whether or not Reed would hold out for a new contract and would he even be playing this season.
A story posted on Sports Radio Interviews details an interview Harbaugh did on Baltimore Sports Talk Radio station 105.7 The Fan. Coach Harbs dished on Reed, the Ray Rice deal as well as more thoughts on the New Orleans Saints Bounty-Gate.
Here's part of what he said on the Ed Reed controversy:
"You stand by your guys and you may not always agree with what they say or how they say it or what they do. Most of the time I do agree with what Ed says, but not all the time and he knows that and he’s a good person. He’s trying to make a nuance point there. It’s a tough point to make a little bit and it’s hard to understand sometimes, but I’ve said all along I believe he’s going to play this year and be here and it looks like that is the case."
