After thriving for 11 seasons in Baltimore, Ed Reed lasted just nine games in Houston.
The Texans released the 35-year-old Reed Tuesday afternoon. News of the move was first reported by the Houston Chronicle‘s John McClain. Reed signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the franchise this past offseason. He locked in $6 million on that deal in guaranteed money, only to reveal once he finished the move that he was suffering from a nagging hip injury. Reed then sat out the entire preseason and the first two weeks of the regular season, before making his debut in Week 3 against Baltimore.
In an unfortunate coincidence, the Texans were 0-7 with Reed in the lineup and 2-0 without him.
