In a move that comes as no surprise, Ed Reed, one of the most decorated safeties in NFL history, is retiring.

The Baltimore Ravens made it official Wednesday and will hold a news conference for Reed on Thursday.

Reed, 36, was an eight-time All-Pro and nine-time Pro Bowl safety in 11 seasons with the Ravens. He was named NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2004 and won a Super Bowl with them in 2012.

He had not played since 2013, when he split time with the Houston Texans and New York Jets.

Reed finished his career with 64 interceptions, sixth most in NFL history.
