Houston, Tx. - Ed Reed tweeted his thanks to the Houston Texans amid multiple reports that the nine-time Pro Bowl safety will be released in what has been a disaster of a season.
Reed missed the first two games after offseason hip surgery and was recently relegated to a backup role. On Friday, he expressed his displeasure at not starting, and on Sunday, after Houston's seventh straight loss, he publicly criticized the team and said the Texans were outplayed and outcoached.
The 35-year-old Reed was signed to a three-year, $15 million contract with $5 million guaranteed after he spent his entire 11-year career with the Baltimore Ravens, winning the Super Bowl in his hometown of New Orleans in February of this year.
