Ed started becoming well known for his football skills while attending Destrehan High School in Louisiana. He played as a kick returner and defensive back, but was also an all-around athlete, playing basketball and baseball. What made Reed really stand out were his track skills, which made him part of the state championship relay squad and a record holder for the javelin throw. After high school, he attended the University of Miami on an athletic scholarship and played with the Miami Hurricanes. During his time there, he set numerous records for interceptions and yards returned, and became a contender for the Jim Thorpe Award (defensive player) and the Bronko Nagurski Trophy. He was part of the team who won the 2001 national championship and he later graduated with a degree in liberal arts.
Reed then joined the 2002 NFL Draft where he was picked up by the Baltimore Ravens as the 24th overall pick. He started performing well in his rookie season and it earned him his first Pro Bowl. Two years later he would be called the NFL Defensive Player of the Year. With all the milestones he had during his first few years in the NFL, 2005 would be the least active due to injury. He returned in 2006 to continue and make his mark in the game and was voted into the Pro Bowl for the third time in his career. He broke his record 107 yard touchdown after an interception against the Philadelphia Eagles. The jersey he wore and the ball used in that game are now part of the Hall of Fame. He continued to be voted for in top lists, becoming very popular for his prowess in defense. During 2010 and beyond, he started to get more injuries, but still continued to play. He was pondering on retiring, but decided to play a few more years and it rewarded him with a Super Bowl ring in Super Bowl XLVII in 2012.
He became a free agent after that, and then decided to play on by signing with the Houston Texans. During this time however, his playing time was slowly decreasing and after one season, he was released by the Texans. Ed subsequently signed with the New York Jets, but in 2014, he took a break from football and the following year announced his retirement, signing a one day contract with the Ravens to retire.
During 2016, Ed returned to football as an assistant defensive backs coach and started to work with Rex Ryan. He is now working for the Buffalo Bills team.
