Ed Reed: "Father Time Waits For None Of Us"

Ed Reed at Ravens training camp (8/1/12)

So said Baltimore Ravens All-Pro free safety Ed Reed, when asked about how he thought the younger players were fitting into the team's defense. Reed spoke before the media after today's practice, taking questions about his health, contract status, teammates and of course, Father Time.

He talked about how he dealt with the off season, healing his body and the business side of football. He said he still had the nerve impingement in his shoulder but hopes it won't bother him this season. He spoke highly about his QB, Joe Flacco, saying how he is a changed person now that he is a family man, and confident in his abilities.

On his teammate Ray Lewis, Reed spoke glowingly on how he knows how to change and adapt as he ages. He discounted talk that he had a sub-par 2011 season compared to 2011, when he led the league in interceptions after missing the first six games. Noting that he can't create turnovers when QB's don't throw to his area, he shook his head and said, "bring it on" when asked about facing quarterbacks this season who had won eight Super Bowls in their careers.
