Tom Brady apologizes to Ed Reed

Ravens safety Ed Reed told WJZ-FM in Baltimore that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady apologized to Reed for his controversial slide in Sunday's AFC Championship Game.

Toward the end of the first half, Brady slid and lifted his leg toward Reed's knee on a play that could have caused an injury. There has been plenty of debate in the past 48 hours whether Brady's actions were intentional. According to a SportsNation poll Tuesday in the AFC East blog, an overwhelming amount of readers believe that was a dirty play by Brady.

But Brady cleared the air with Reed by personally apologizing. The next step is to see what happens with the NFL. The league is reviewing the play to see if Brady will be fined.
