Ed Reed the former Baltimore Ravens All Pro safety, is one of the most adored players in NFL history. Many of the players right now look up to Reed, and it is because of his knowledge of the game. There have been stories over the past few years that talked about Ed Reed being one of the most dedicated players in the film room, and now he has the stamp from his head coach Rex Ryan.
“When we had him his last year with the Jets (in 2013), he was the pied piper,” Ryan said at last week’s NFL Annual Meeting, per ESPN.com’s Mike Rodak. “They all followed him and they all learned the game. And that’s why I know this guy’s going to be a great coach.
“I would not be shocked if Ed Reed ends up being a head coach within five years. That’s how quick this dude’s going to rise. Teaching guys how to study tape, how to get things, playing the game.”
Ed Reed would definitely be a fan favorite of many players, so it will be interesting to see what Reed can do with the Bills defense.
