There’s no doubt that when it’s all over, Ed Reed will go down as one of the greatest safeties to ever play the game. But his swan song is not ending in the most storybook of fashions.
Reed, who spent his entire (and extremely successful) career with the Baltimore Ravens left the team in free agency prior to the 2013 season, signing with the Houston Texans. That didn’t work out as planned though as Reed was injured and struggled to return to form, resulting in him questioning the coaching staff and eventually being given the pink slip.
Never one to miss an aging veteran on the wire, the New York Jets decided to give Reed an opportunity. So far, so not good as Reed has found himself on the wrong end of a few big plays and has yet to experience a win this season, at least when he plays.
I’m just gonna go with this, sans research: Ed Reed has played in the most losses this year w/o winning any games. He’s 0-9.
Houston went 2-0 without Reed prior to his release and the Jets are now 0-2 with Reed on the field. As mentioned above, he’s a combined 0-9 on the year in games he has played.
