Unlike Ray Lewis, who earlier this week announced his intentions to retire, Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed isn't addressing the matter right now.

Reed, who hinted last off-season of retiring then, says now is not the time for that talk as he is focused on the Ravens' playoff mission, which begins Sunday at home against the Indianapolis Colts.

Reed says the decision on his future won't come until the upcoming off-season when he will take family and his future into consideration.

"Family is No. 1. My son is young, but like I said, I am not thinking about that right now," Reed tells the Baltimore Sun. "That's not my question. That question is not for me in my career right now. Maybe later in the offseason, some time I'll start thinking about that stuff. I'm not thinking about it right now."
