Eleven year all-pro safety Ed Reed, is set to become the newest member of the Houston Texans organization. Reed sent a text to NFL Netwok’s Albert Breer saying that he’s going to the Texans.
“Nothing official, but unless something changes, yes.” Report that Reed’s contract could give him about $7 million a year on a two-year deal. Reed coming off of a season where he racked up 58 tackles and 4 interceptions.
Over Reed’s eleven year career with the Baltimore Ravens, he has racked up 61 interceptions, 504 tackles, 109 pass deflections, and 7 defensive touchdowns.
As for the Ravens, they have remained in contact with Reed through the process, but as Baltimore Sun’s Aaron Wilson reports on Twitter, they were not aggressive enough to keep Reed.
As the Ravens lose yet another key player that has been on their roster for years and helped their Super Bowl run, they plan to meet with former Raiders’ safety Michael Huff.
The Ravens have had to say goodbye to a lot of key players on their team, but now perhaps the two biggest defensive leaders on the team over the past decade in Reed and Ray Lewis. The deal has not been reported official yet, but is expected to be very soon.
