 If you believe Ed Reed, one of his last plays as a Raven could be a free-wheeling, loose play that perhaps cost the Ravens any chance they had of mounting a comeback against the Indianapolis Colts  is thinking about retirement.

 Ed Reed, 31, has battled injuries, including neck ailments. He was limited to 12 games this season. He said before the season that he has thought about retirement for the past couple of years.

I've been thinking about it, and it kind of hit me on the sidelines," he said Saturday after a 20-3 playoff loss to the Colts. "It's going to be a long offseason. It hurts. I am just thinking about it.

Reed has a franchise-record 46 interceptions and 13 career touchdowns. He is the only player in NFL history to score TDs by blocking a punt and returning a punt, an interception and a fumble.
