Ed Reed to play in Baltimore one more time
By Jamison Hensley
It's beginning to feel like safety Ed Reed hasn't really left M&T Bank Stadium.
Reed signed with the New York Jets on Thursday, meaning he will play in Baltimore for a second time this season. The Jets play at M&T Bank Stadium on Nov. 24.
He was with the Houston Texans when they lost in Baltimore, 30-9, in Week 3. This could be Reed's final game in Baltimore, given the decline of his play.
This isn't the first time the Ravens have met a former player twice in the same season. In 2011, wide receiver Derrick Mason played in Baltimore for two games. Coincidentally, Mason played for the Jets and Texans.
Reed, who was released by the Texans on Tuesday, becomes the fifth notable ex-Raven to reunite with Rex Ryan in New York. Here's how those players have fared in Ravens North:
Bart Scott, linebacker: A four-year starter who averaged 75 tackles per season.
Jim Leonhard, safety: A three-year starter who totaled three interceptions and 15 passes defensed.
Trevor Pryce, defensive end: Played in 10 games but started none. Managed four tackles, one sack, and one safety.
Mason, wide receiver: Caught 13 passes for 115 yards and no touchdowns. Released after playing five games.
