Veteran Safety Ed Reed Looks To Join Houston Texans Soon
The Houston Texans were surprised after signing big-name free agent safety Ed Reed that hip surgery was in his near future. Reed is currently undergoing rehab at a facility in Atlanta, missing OTAs this week in Houston.
The Texans are in need of veteran leadership in the secondary, and can only hope that his return happens sooner than later. Reed will attend a ring ceremony to commemorate his recent Super Bowl victory with the Baltimore Ravens late next week. He’ll then fly to Washington DC to participate in the obligatory hob-knobbing with the chief of staff.
Reeds looks to continue his rehab at Texans’ minicamp, and will hopefully be ready sometime around the middle of training camp.
Even with potential nagging injuries, Reed brings a history of winning and leadership to this group. Houston took a shot on Reed, and while there is concern about his health, he certainly has a ton of upside. Look for Reed to bounce back from hip surgery hungry to win another title. He should prove to be a leader on the defensive side of the ball, especially under the expert guidance of Wade Phillips.
The Texans’ secondary has made substantial improvements in the past two seasons. Phillips has proven to be a defensive wizard, taking an inept group and turning them into a hard-nosed unit.
Reed’s edge and know-how will surely help the cause.
