Former Ravens safety and future Hall-of-Famer Ed Reed is joining forces with one of his old coaches, Rex Ryan, in Buffalo.
The Bills hired Reed to become an assistant defensive backs coach, which will mark Reed's first ever NFL coaching gig. Reed played under Ryan during their time with the Ravens in the 00s, as well as with the Jets in 2013.

Reed is the NFL's all-time leader in interception-return yards and playoff interceptions, and also ranks sixth in regular season interceptions. He's a nine-time pro bowler and won the Super Bowl with the Ravens in 2012.
From Dan Hanzus of NFL.com:
"Ed Reed is going to be such a great asset to our team," said Ryan. "Obviously he's played in this system and been an MVP caliber guy in this system. He's going to be such a great asset for players. He's a real student of the game as well and he's going to be a phenomenal coach."
