Ed Reed to the Houston Texans is nearly a done deal. Reed is leaving the Baltimore Ravens to join the Texans, improving a defense that was already pretty good in the 2012 NFL season. According to a report from early Thursday morning (March 21), a visit to Houston apparently went really well, creating a situation where Reed felt comfortable finally stepping away from the only NFL team he has played for.
The report stated that Reed is going to sign with the Texans, with a three-year deal what is considered to be on the table right now. Earlier it was reported that Reed got offered a salary in the range of $4 million annually, but that is a pretty big dip from the $7.2 million that he earned in the 2012 NFL season. Further details are likely to be revealed as more information on the signing comes out, but it looks like a done deal either way.
Ed Reed going to the Houston Texans immediately makes the team a lot better while simultaneously making the Baltimore Ravens much worse on defense. Reed becomes just the latest player to leave this offseason, leaving some fans wondering whether the team even has the talent to defend its recent Super Bowl win.
