Matt Williamson, ESPN’s AFC North Blog, breaks down the Baltimore Ravens’ safeties. Included are Ed Reed, Dawan Landry, Tom Zbikowski, and Haruki Nakamura. Here is a snippet from the Ed Reed portion:
In my opinion, Ed Reed is the second-best safety in the league. Reed is a sure Hall of Famer, and his overall playmaking ability is off the charts. After spending the first six games of last season on the PUP list, Reed stormed back to lead the league with eight interceptions. There isn’t a more dangerous defender in the league with the ball in his hands. He is a student of the game who baits quarterbacks and breaks on the ball extremely well. Reed’s body might not hold up the way it once did, and he isn’t quite as inclined to throw himself into the action as he once was, but he is still a fantastic player.
