Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome plans to sit down with Reed's agent, David Dunn, at the NFL Annual Meeting this week and make an offer to keep the future Hall of Fame safety. He believes Reed will make a decision this week.
"Four years ago, we went down this same road with Ray (Lewis)," Newsome told USA Today's Jarrett Bell. "Dave always does a very good job of keeping us in the loop. That doesn't mean Ed will come back, and it doesn't mean that he will leave."
Newsome wouldn't hint at what the offer will be after Reed made $7.2 million last season. He should be a priority with the loss of Lewis, Paul Kruger, Dannell Ellerbe, Bernard Pollard and Cary Williams
