If Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed is serious about continuing to play in the NFL next season, he shouldn't have any problems finding work - even if the Ravens don't bring him back.

Reed, 34, is in the final year of his contract, and there has been speculation that he could hit the free agent market. Already, the New England Patriots have been rumored and speculated about as a landing spot.

But Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun says don't count out the Indianapolis Colts, given Reed's relationship with Colts coach Chuck Pagano, who was formerly the Ravens defensive coordinator and knows Reed from their days together at the University of Miami.

There will likely be other teams who feel they are one defensive leader away from being a Super Bowl contender, who could get into the Reed hunt as well.
