BALTIMORE, Md. (CBSMiami) – Former University of Miami Hurricanes star safety Ed Reed has informed the Baltimore Ravens that he is planning on returning to the team in 2012.

Reed has flirted with retirement several times over the past few seasons due to a variety of injuries and his age in the game.

But, Reed had a stellar season in 2011 with 52 tackles, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble, and 3 interceptions while starting every game.

Reed, who will turn 34 during the season, has been the key to backline of the stellar Baltimore Ravens defense since he came into the league in 2002.

For his career, Reed has 547 tackles, 6 sacks, 57 interceptions and 11 forced fumbles.

With Reed back in the fold, it’s likely a given that middle linebacker Ray Lewis will once again man the middle of the Ravens defense in 2012.
