Super Bowl Champion S Ed Reed, who played for the Baltimore Ravens from 2002 to 2012, says he will be joining the Houston Texans.
Reed told NFL.com’s Albert Breer that he plans to be a Texan via text message.
Houston was already an elite team, and this to-be acquisition will bolster their squad even more. Reed possess unparalleled instincts that propel him to making unlikely interceptions, and his veteran knowledge will only help the Texans.
While this move benefits Houston, it leaves Baltimore stinging.
Earlier in the free agency period, LB’s Paul Kruger and Dannell Ellerbe signed with the Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins respectively. LB Ray Lewis hung up his cleats a while ago, and now Reed is gone.
The Ravens need to draft a linebacker in the first round and the second round. MLB Manti Te’o certainly is an option for the Ravens in the first round, and they should snag a pass rushing outside linebacker with their second round pick.
The Ravens have some work to do, and the Texans are gearing up for what hopes to be a Super Bowl run with Reed in the secondary now.
