September 10, 2012; Baltimore, MD, USA; Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed (20) scores a touchdown on an interception return during the game against the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Evan Habeeb-US PRESSWIREAfter picking off Andy Dalton and taking it to the house last night, Ed Reed passed Rod Woodson to become the all-time leader in interception return yards.

Reed now has 1,497 INT return yards. Charles Woodson is the closest active player, with 896.

Reed has been a notorious ball-hawk for his entire career with the Ravens, and once again he showed why teams are afraid to throw the ball in his direction.

Not only is he a threat to make an interception at almost any time, he's also a threat to turn it into points for the Ravens, whether it's by giving his offense some great field position, or taking it all the way to the end zone himself.

Reed is tied for 10th all time with 58 career interceptions, but could move up to 6th with just a typical Ed Reed season.

If he retired today, Ed Reed would certainly be a lock to make the Hall of Fame. He has hinted several times at retirement, and this might be his last year on the field.

Where do you think Ed Reed ranks among the all-time greatest safeties to play in the NFL?
