Re: There's a reason Ed Reed won't put Houston over the top
Look at the teams that were rumored to try to get Reed with 49ers, Patriots and Colts. We may not go over the top, but we have a better chance with him than without. Every starter for the secondary idolizes him, it is almost like they got a renewed sense of playing in Houston. Andre will look forward to spending days with him, he also will have a resurgence by playing longer with Texans. Don't forget that Barry Sanders and Robert Smith quit their team because of dealing with the SOS. If Reed had stayed with Ravens, he probaly would not play more than 1 season. Here, he will be working with new system, new teammates, importantly gaining new fans. Reed will be energize like an incoming freshman, but with skills and respect. We got better this offseason.
