Can Ravens take advantage of weak Bears' run defense?

Looks like the Ed Reed will be playing at M & T Bank Stadium again this season. Not for the Ravens, but for the Jets.

The Jets signed Reed on Thursday, reuniting Reed with Jets head coach Rex Ryan, who was once the Ravens’ defensive coordinator.

Reed and Ryan have always had a close relationship. With the Jets having secondary issues, Ryan hopes Reed still has enough left in the tank to help at age 35.

Joining the Jets means Reed will be back in Baltimore on Nov. 24, when the Ravens host the Jets. Reed, who spent 11 seasons with the Ravens, already played once in Baltimore on Sept. 22 when he was with the Texans. Reed he did not play that well during a 30-9 Ravens’ victory. After that game, Reed said he thought the Texans might see the Ravens during the playoffs. Who knew that the Texans would eventually release Reed, and that Reed would join the Jets?

Obviously, Reed did not want his career to end being dumped by the Texans, and the surprising Jets (5-4) are in playoff contention, giving Reed another chance to play meaningful games, including another game in Baltimore.
