Ed Reed nominated.
Imo should be first ballot

The 24th overall draft selection in 2002, Reed played 11 seasons in Baltimore, three times leading the league in interceptions. Among his 64 career picks were returns for touchdowns of 106 and 107 yards. He made five All-Pro squads, was the 2004 Defensive Player of the Year, and joined Gonzalez on the all-decade team. Reed won a Super Bowl in the 2012 season.

Not much to discuss on this one.

He's in on the 1st ballot.

Reed was an instant game changer. Years ago I was listening to a local Atlanta sports radio show and one of the announcers referred to him as 'instant offense' That was the perfect summation of his abilities. Surefire 1st ballot HOFer.

The best Safety in NFL history, he & Ray were the reason why I became a Ravens fan.

No question he'll be a 1st ballot. What I hope is that Edgerrin James gets in next year as well.

He would’ve been know as the 2nd best Safety in history if Sean didn’t pass. Definite first ballot.

Still remember Bill Belichick and Tom Brady's quotes on Reed and facing him. No brainer 1st ballot.

Those were the days... two nola boys (Reggie and Ed) balling out in the old lady. Ed Reed taking that ball from Walters and running it back was the crazyiest thing ever. I always wondered what Ed was saying to Walters when he snatched the ball from him.

Greatest safety in NFL history and there is not a close second. No way he doesn't get in

According to Ed, he said, “Gimme the ball man. It’s me. Reed.”

3 Canes go in the Hall of Fame next year. Ed Reed, Edgerrin James and Jimmy Johnson! I’ve never been to Canton but if it happens, I’m booking my tickets. The Canes will take over Canton that weekend!!!
