General manager Rick Smith was not surprised when told free safety Ed Reed was working out in the Texans’ weight room about an hour after his introductory news conference.
“Every time I’ve spoken with Ed, whether on the phone or in person, he was either working out or on his way to work out,” Smith said. “That’s the kind of player he is. That’s the kind of dedication he has.”
After Smith got Reed under a three-year, $15 million contract that counts only $3.33 million against the salary cap this year, he turned his attention to punter Shane Lechler.
Talk about work ethic!
