Ravens Activate David Reed….Why?

This week the Ravens activated David Reed to their active roster off of the PUP list. Reed will play special teams for the most part and it is hard to imagine him making any impact at all. I’m not big on David Reed, I felt he was over-rated as a kick returner so seeing him steal Jacoby Jones spot would be a travesty in my eyes. I also can’t see him breaking the WR rotation. The Ravens can barely incorporate the players they have right now. Between Torrey Smith, Anquan Boldin, Ray Rice, Tandon Doss, Vonta Leech, Ed Dickson, Dennis Pitta and Jacoby Jones they barely have enough plays to go around as it is.

Reed was probably brought in just to cover kicks and punts and give the Ravens a little depth, possible to get Brenden Ayenbedejo off the field on kick coverage to keep him from getting hurt to save their already extremely thin ILB group.
