Personal life

Reed is the younger brother of former wide receiver David Reed, who was drafted in the fifth round of 2010 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens.[62]

Reed says cannabis helped him deal with pain during his football career, and that he is pursuing business opportunities in the cannabis industry following his retirement from football.[61][63] He further explained his decision in a USA Today op-ed, stating: "I want to broker change in how cannabis is perceived, how it's prescribed, how it's researched, how it's accessed, and how it can bring about lasting change for Americans from all walks of life".[64]
