Ravens S Ed Reed, speaking at his football camp in Destrehan, La. on Tuesday, told The (New Orleans) Times-Picayune that he's not quite back at full strength. 

"I'm still not 100 percent (healthy)," Reed said, according to The Times-Picayune. "But I'm 100 percent mentally at this point as far as everything I can do. I know my limitations. I still have a lot of work to do before the season starts."

Reed missed the first six games of the 2010 season after offseason hip surgery but still led the NFL with eight interceptions in just 10 starts. He also missed time in ’09 with a nerve impingement in his neck. He has missed 10 games in the last two seasons after sitting out only six games in his first seven NFL seasons. 

The way we see it 

Reed remains one of the NFL's top defensive players. His playmaking ability is integral to a Baltimore defense that struggled vs. the pass at times last season.
