Baltimore RavensEdit

On December 13, 2010, against the Houston Texans, Reed scored his first NFL touchdown on a 103-yard kickoff return. The return set a new Ravens franchise record (eclipsing the old mark of 97 yards by Patrick Johnson) and his 233 kickoff return yards were also the second most in franchise history. For his efforts, Reed was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.[5]

In 2011, Reed was suspended without pay for the September 11 season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers [6] and fined an additional game check for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Reed's suspension stemmed from an 2010 incident in which police discovered marijuana at his residence.

In week 10 of the 2011 season, Reed fumbled two kickoff returns against the Seattle Seahawks [7] one after running into his own teammate and the other after he lost his balance.
