Houston Texans will release Ed Reed

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Texans will release safety Ed Reed today. Reed hasn’t been the player we’ve seen with the Ravens with the Texans and hasn’t played a considerable amount.

Reed made comments claiming the Texans were “out-played and out-coached” and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips wasn’t thrilled.

“Everybody has their own feelings about what’s happening,” Phillips said, via the Houston Chronicle. “They have their own ideas about what’s happening or didn’t happen. We try to keep everything in-house. That’s our policy here. That’s what we try to do, and that’s what I’m going to do.”

Phillips was asked why Reed went public with his opinion instead of keeping it in-house?

“I really don’t have an answer for that question. Like I said, a lot of people have opinions about what should or shouldn’t be done and those kinds of things.”

That could’ve played a role in his release as well. In seven games he has recorded 16 tackles. The Dallas Cowboys were working out safety Michael Huff after Jeff Heath was burned multiple times against the Saints. You’d think the Cowboys might call Reed now that he is available.



Ed Reed tweeted about it too:
