Ed Reed is Out and Michael Huff is In

I was really sad when I found out that Ed Reed was going to be playing for the Houston Texans. This was shocking news especially since it has been less than two months since Ed Reed's speech at the Ravens parade. I guess it is only fair that the Texans take one of our good players seeing that we got Bernard Pollard, Vonta Leach, and Jacoby Jones from them. The pain of losing Ed Reed was eased a little bit when I heard the news that we acquired safety Michael Huff from the Oakland Raiders.

Michael Huff will probably never be another Ed Reed but he is a better cover guy than Bernard Pollard and is he very physical. He is also very versatile and can play both strong and free safety positions as well as cornerback. Combine this free agency signing with that of Elvis Dumervil and it looks like the Baltimore Ravens will be back in business in 2013. Michael Huff's NFL career stats

Will Ravens Keep Safety Ed Reed?

After the Baltimore Ravens shocked the fans by cutting hard hitting safety Bernard Pollard, keeping Ed Reed is a must in my opinion. I mean who would feel confortable with a completely new secondary on defense? The Houston Texans seem to be rolling out the red carpet to try get Ed Reed from us. There is still hope however that Baltimore will keep him as the Ravens organization is expected to meet with Reed's agent soon.

Here is a video clip of Ed Reed's speech in front of the crown and M&T Bank stadium during Ravens parade after the Superbowl 47 victory:
