Reed was best known for studying film to memorize opposing teams' tendencies, as well as his ability to lure quarterbacks into throwing interceptions.

When that time comes, we'll see. That's definitely something that's going to go on with my agent and the Ravens. I feel good. When it happens, it happens. I'm focused on practicing right now and learning the defense.

Let it play. It's funny. I'm glad I got that highlight if they are going to keep playing it and put me on TV like that.

[I'm] very excited! Just to represent the team on the first cover is a great thing. Since before training camp began it's been about the Ravens and still it's about the Ravens. Hopefully I'll live up to the expectations and continue to do what I'm supposed to do for my job.

I'm sure everybody's glad it's the preseason. This is the time when you mess up, you go back and say, 'How do we correct this? Did we communicate? Did we miss an assignment?' So we go back in the film room, we correct it, and then we move on.
