Ed Reed Still Leading as New Member of Houston Texans
As a member of the Baltimore Ravens, Ed Reed was a leader for them both vocally and with his play on the defensive side of the ball. All-around, Reed was one of the best safeties in the game as he could cover well and lay down the hammer when necessary. He led calmly, in compliment of Ray Lewis’ vocal leadership, and led by example.
Now Reed is a member of the Houston Texans for the 2013 NFL season and will be looking to somewhat defy age (34 years old) and will be looking to be a leader for a Texans team on the verge of being a contender. Though he has yet to touch the field in OTAs and is still recovering from hip surgery, he seems to already be showing his leadership with Houston.
Though it’s early in the time for team activities and he hasn’t been participating, Reed has reportedly been displaying his leadership already. According to a quote from after one of the workouts, safety Danieal Manning, who will be playing alongside Reed, talked to Reed about whether or not it mattered if he played strong or free safety. Reed apparently said that they would play either side and do whatever felt the best.
For some, that might seem like a dismissive, noncommittal reply from Reed. However, it also shows that he’s making a concerted effort at becoming acclimated to this Texans team and showing them that he’s willing to do whatever it takes for this team to be successful. Reed may not be the dominant player that he once was this season, but he’s undoubtedly going to be a leader on the field for the Texans.
