HOLLYWOOD, CA - FEBRUARY 24: NFL football player Ed Reed attends the Oscars at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 24, 2013 in Hollywood, California.
I’m not going to sit around and wait for football. There’s too much life to be lived and too many things to experience that I haven’t been able to experience being a professional athlete the last 14 years ... I’ll be ready if a team calls but if they don’t, I’ll be a busy guy and I can go out saying that my last game that I’ve ever played in was the Super Bowl and I won a championship alongside Ray Lewis, Joe Flacco, Ed Reed, Haloti Ngata and all these amazing guys that will go down forever in Baltimore history together.
I've played through injuries, we've all seen them ... What they say is this game is 90 percent mental and 10 percent physical. Everybody knows father time catches up with you, but when you have the right people around and the right situation you understand what you're doing in your role. You're able to move a certain way throughout a defense.More quotes »
