Ravens Re-Sign David Reed For Two Years

Posted Mar 12, 2013

Baltimore locked up wide receiver David Reed, who has struggled to stay healthy.


The day after the Ravens reportedly traded wide receiver Anquan Boldin, they re-signed wideout David Reed.

The Ravens signed Reed to a two-year contract, the team confirmed before Tuesday's 4 p.m. free agency deadline. The Baltimore Sun reports that it carries a maximum value of nearly $2.5 million and includes a $500,000 signing bonus.

Reed was a restricted free agent who had not yet received a tender from the Ravens. By reportedly signing him to a lower price than the $1.323 million original-round tender, Baltimore saves some room under the salary cap.

Reed, 25, has struggled to stay healthy during his three seasons in Baltimore. A fractured wrist/hand ended his rookie season after 13 games when he was leading the NFL in average yards per kickoff return (29.3).

Then a torn anterior cruciate ligament wiped out the remainder of his 2011 season after 11 games and gave him a late start on 2012.

But Reed continually worked hard to return to the field, and last year made it back for five regular-season games and three in the playoffs. A core special teams player who had four tackles last season, Reed also started to emerge as a wide receiver last year.

Reed caught five passes for 66 yards, all coming in Baltimore’s final three regular-season games. The Ravens have long liked the fifth-round prospect’s hands, toughness and quickness as a receiver, and he could be a weapon in the slot.
