Reed, 35, spent 11 seasons with the Ravens before signing with the Houston Texans as a free agent this year. He was released Tuesday by the Texans, days after saying the team was “outplayed and outcoached” in a loss to the Arizona Cardinals — the seventh straight defeat for the Texans after a 2-0 start.
He had just 16 tackles in seven games and recently lost his starting job in Houston.
“There are no plans to change our secondary personnel at this time,” Harbaugh said. “We’re happy with what we have. Our guys are playing well, so that’s where we’re at.”
Reed will be considered one of the greatest players in Ravens history. He went to nine Pro Bowls and was named NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2004.
“Ed is a Raven, and he’ll always be a Raven,” Harbaugh said. “I’m sure he’ll be in the ring of honor someday, and I’m sure he’ll be in the Hall of Fame someday. We’ve kept in contact with Ed, on and off here regularly. He’s a good friend of everybody here.”
