Ed Reed officially retired from the NFL Thursday during a news conference in Baltimore, and he did so by taking one last shot at the Browns quarterbacks.

“Every quarterback in Cleveland, I loved; Cincinnati, too. Pittsburgh always a tough team with Ben Roethlisberger,” Reed said at the Ravens training facility during a news conference attended by team president Dick Cass, general manager Ozzie Newsome, coach John Harbaugh and several former teammates.
Reed spent 11 years with the Ravens before playing for both the Texans and Jets in 2013.
“Home is Baltimore,” Reed said. “This is home. Baltimore, I love the city. I love this organization. I hope I did more than I was supposed to as a Raven.
“My heart is at M&T Bank Stadium. I hope I did more than what was asked of me when I was a Raven.”
Reed is the Ravens’ all-time leader with 61 career interceptions and 138 passes defensed. His 64 total interceptions rank sixth all-time in NFL history.
He snatched 12 away from Browns quarterbacks.
His 1,547 interception return yards and eight career interception return touchdowns are also team records.
