The Ed Reed era in Baltimore has ended, but the former Raven star opted to say thanks one more time before beginning a new chapter in Houston.

Ravens Nation, My eleven seasons in Baltimore were more than I would have everimagined, which is why I have such deep love for you all. I will forever cherish my time with the Ravens and the chills that ran down my spine when I finally kissed the Lombardi Trophy. Special thanks to the City, Team, Organization and all the Fans! I’m going to miss being a part of this tremendous team and organization, but I’ll always be Baltimore and my Foundation will remain in this community, this is not a goodbye, but a See You Soon.

Thank you for everything Baltimore, God Bless you.
