Texans release Ed Reed

As if the answer to a 2-7 season (thus far), the Houston Texans have decided to cut ties with their free agent coup, Ed Reed.  Reed, who signed a 3-year $15 million contract, he underwent labium surgery that kep out of uniform and off the field until week 3 of the season.  In the six games that followed, Reed has only collected 16 tackles.

“Certain situations, we just got outplayed and outcoached,” Reed told ESPN’s Tania Ganguli after Houston’s latest loss, a 27-24 setback in Arizona. “If you’re watching the game, it’s not no-brainers … Eventually, they’re going to figure out what you’re doing if you’re doing the same old things.”

The Texans face the 3-6 Oakland Raiders at home this weekend.  Great seats and tickets are still available.
