Houston Texans owner Bob McNair indicated FS Ed Reed (hip) could miss the beginning of training camp because of the hip surgery he had last week but should be ready by the middle of camp.
Huddle Up: Reed hasn't missed a game the past 2 seasons, but he will hit 35 in September and the Texans certainly weren't looking at the long run when they signed the safety to a FA deal.

Houston Texans FS Ed Reed underwent surgery last week to repair a small tear in his hip. He is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said that he expects free- agent Ed Reed (Ravens) to decide which team he will sign with at some point this week. Newsome expects to meet with Reed's agent at the owner meetings.
Huddle Up: Reed's meeting with the Texans last week didn't result in a deal, leaving the door open for a return to the Ravens, who could use some positive news after taking a number of hits since free agency opened March 12.

The Houston Chronicle's John McClain speculates that free-agent FS Ed Reed (Ravens) will reach an agreement with the Houston Texans Friday, March 15, after visiting with them Thursday.
Huddle Up: The Niners and Pats were the early front-runners to sign the veteran ballhawk, but it looks as if Reed will be spending the 2013 season trying to help the Texans get over the hump.

The Baltimore Ravens are focusing on trying to re-sign impending free-agent QB Joe Flacco, LB Dannell Ellerbe and FS Ed Reed this offseason but may not be able to bring back all three players.
Huddle Up: All indications are that the aging veteran Reed would be the odd-man out with Flacco the clear No. 1 priority, followed by the emerging Ellerbe.

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh wants FS Ed Reed to return to the Ravens next season. Reed is scheduled to become a free agent during the summer and the tight salary cap of the Ravens may make it tough for the team to bring Reed back. "We had that conversation [Sunday night] on the bus ride away from the stadium actually," Harbaugh said. "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, and hopefully we can make that happen."
Huddle Up: The Ravens definitely don't want to lose Ray Lewis and Reed in the same offseason. Neither player is what they once were, but their veteran leadership is invaluable.

The New Orleans Saints could consider pursuing Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent FS Ed Reed once free agency begins.
Huddle Up: Add the Saints to the list of franchises who could use the experience of a playmaking future Hall-of-Fame safety, albeit a player who's in decline.

Baltimore Ravens FS Ed Reed said at the Super Bowl that he isn't just fearful he may one day suffer from brain injuries caused by football, he thinks he's already dealing with them. 'I think some things I go through (right now) are football related,' Reed said. 'There's been some thing that honestly put up a flag. Just stuff that I know, stuff that I know I've been through, minor (things where I said,) 'Oh, my, this might be because I've been playing football so long.' I'm sure there is going to be something related to football.'
Huddle Up: More grim news in regards to the ongoing football/head injury issue that isn't going to go away any time soon.

Baltimore Ravens FS Ed Reed, an impending free agent, said Thursday, Jan. 24, he will return for another season in 2013, even if the team wins Super Bowl XLVII. 'I'll be playing next year if that's what you all are asking,' Reed said.
Huddle Up: Reed isn't quite the play-maker he used to be, but with the Ravens already preparing to lose legendary leader Ray Lewis, look for them to ensure Reed remains a Raven for the rest of his career.

Baltimore Ravens FS Ed Reed (hamstring) suffered a strained hamstring in the team's Week 1 win, according to head coach John Harbaugh. The injury does not appear to be serious.
Huddle Up: This is good news for the Ravens, who can ill afford to be without the play-making safety with LB Terrell Suggs already MIA this season.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens FS Ed Reed (hamstring) is receiving treatment on his right hamstring in the locker room. Reed suffered the injury during the third quarter of the Week 1 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Reed appeared to suffer the injury on his 34-yard interception return for a TD, and his loss would be a key one for the Ravens, who already are playing without 2011 NFL Defensive Player of the Year Terrell Suggs.

Baltimore Ravens FS Ed Reed sent a loud message to Ravens management on his Twitter account recently as he tweeted: 'Back home with my son, he's riding his bike (and) I'm doing yard work! Tell the bosses I'm comfortable!' Reed has skipped voluntary mini-camps and could be trying to gain leverage for a new contract. He'll make $7.2 million in the final year of his deal.
Huddle Up: Soon-to-be 34-year olds don't normally get big contract extensions, even first ballot Hall of Famers. But Reed isn't really concerned about more years' salaries, he just wants one last contract with five-digit guaranteed money. Ozzie Newsome's in a pickle here. The Ravens' window is closing as Reed and Ray Lewis near retirement and this could be the team's last Super Bowl push for a while.
