According to sources Ed Reed has been cut by the Houston Texans. I think if youre Rex you have to go take a look at this guy. He knows Rex's defense and can certainly help us out and rotate with Allen and Landry.
Man that would be a nice addition to the rotation, bringing leadership and knowledge of the D to the table.
Gotta admit though he didn't look close to the same player in the playoffs last year and I havent seen him play this season personally so who knows how much help Ed would be.

We don't need an old, slow safety.
This is a young, fast team right now - let's keep it that way.
Donīt know about this one...
Texans released S Ed Reed.
A shell of himself at age 35 with hip and knee issues, Reed had been demoted to third-string safety behind Shiloh Keo and D.J. Swearinger. In the Week 10 loss at Arizona, he only logged 12 snaps while playing exclusively in dime packages. After the game, Reed said Texans were "outplayed" and "outcoached." With the 2-7 Texans now in rebuilding mode, they don't need a proud veteran like Reed griping. They'll eat the $6 million guaranteed they gave the ex-Raven back in March and move on. Reed is a nine-time Pro Bowler and future Hall of Famer, but any team bringing him in should keep expectations in check. He's near the end of the line. Nov 12 - 12:36 PM
Not that I've really watched the Texans this year, but I assume he has nothing left.
Age and injuries have caught up with him. Pass.
One of the few non-Jets defensive players I've ever loved. I'd be lying if I said I didn't want him here, even if his physical talents have diminished. He still knows Rex's system, and he'd be a perfect fit since he'd be an upgrade over Bush at FS while Antonio Allen has the strong safety position wrapped up.
We probably should if he's healthy to keep him away from NE
The thing about Reed is that even though he might be at the end of it physically, he can still read a defense and use his mind. Also could be a great mentor to Allen and Milliner.
looks like he has to pass through waivers first so a team may have a shot at him before us. Just have to pick up the rest of his salary for this year at a little more than 400K. I would do it. Hes a leader and would bring credibility to the secondary
Reed= Bart Scott from last year.
