The Houston Texans Release Pro Bowl Safety Ed Reed After Just Nine Games

The Houston Texans have decided to part ways with pro bowl safety Ed Reed as of Tuesday.  Reed (Pictured on the left) was inactive in the teams only two victories this season. He returned to face the Ravens in Baltimore in week three. The former Raven played in each of the next six games, and finished with 21 total tackles before his release.

The 35 year old safety told reporters that his team was “out-played and out-coached” as it pertained to their loss this past Sunday to the Arizona Cardinals.  Houston would lose the game by a final score of 27-24.

The 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year signed with the team as a free agent in late March.  Reed was set to make $4 million in 2014 and $5 million in 2015, which meant that his release was a matter of when not if.
