There was a lot of talk last week after Ravens safety Ed Reed claimed he wasn’t 100 percent sure that he was going to come back for the 2012 season.
While Ravens nation may be in turmoil over it, head coach John Harbaugh doesn’t seem overly concerned that Reed is going to hang it up just yet.
According to Pro Football Talk, Harbaugh feels that Reed will show up when he has to, and isn’t worried about him sitting out voluntary OTA’s.
“Ed is a guy that I really trust and really care about. I believe in him. There’s been no indication that he’s not going to play this year as far as I’m concerned,” Harbaugh said, via the Baltimore Sun. “I don’t worry about Ed. Ed is a mature guy. He’s a superstar. He’s a first-ballot Hall of Famer and he’ll be here. We’re counting on Ed being here.”
Harbaugh said he thinks that when Reed said he isn’t completely committed to playing, he was talking more about how he feels right now, during the offseason, than about how he views the regular season.
“I think he’s talking about the offseason,” Harbaugh said. “He’s got a lot of things going on, that’s what he said. He’s working on personal things. I guarantee you he’s training, I guarantee you that he’s getting ready for the season. That’s just Ed.”
