Houston Texans to Sign Ed Reed
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Houston Texans and longtime Baltimore safety Ed Reed have agreed to a two-year deal.
Reed also reportedly sent a text to Albert Breer of NFL.com that said, “Nothing official, but unless something changes, then yes.”
Reed had reportedly received an offer somewhere in the range of $4M from Houston, but La Canfora indicated that he wouldn’t be surprised if the deal was somewhere around $6M.
The safety will turn 35 at the beginning of the season, but he’s coming off a season during which he recorded 49 tackles to go along with four interceptions and six passes defended. He also had 15 tackles and an interception during the Ravens’ Super Bowl run.
Reed will instantly replace Glover Quin in the Texans’ starting lineup, who signed a deal with the Detroit Lions last week.
